Today, my brother turns 19. How is it possible that he is 19 already? The years are passing by at warpspeed, and I can't catch up. It seems like just yesterday I was his age and he was just starting to drive. Of course, he didn't want any help learning. Because there is nothing his big sister can teach him.
Today, I am thankful that my parents decided to have another child. I am thankful that I didn't have to grow up alone. That I always had another person who I could play with and talk to. The boy that looks so much like me. The boy that acts so much differently than me. The boy who is really not a boy anymore.
Today, Christian, I wish you a happy birthday. I hope your day is filled with lots of love, well wishes, and cake. 19 is a fun year, and I know it will be one you will never forget. Go Florida Gulf Coast!
