Yesterday I was all about the sleep. Long night shift, long drive home, but thankful for the smiles of my family upon my return. And very thankful to my kind and loving wife who sent me to bed early!
Today I am thankful for my brother. He turns 35 today. He is one of the most talented people I know, musically and otherwise. Totally dedicated to his family, a great example of a dad.
We don't spend near enough time together anymore, but neither of us can convince the other to move to their neck of the woods!
So today I am thankful for his influence on my life. He often took the road less travelled, and that led him to a great many adventures... schooling in England, performing operas in Rome, he played golf in high school his senior year, instead of just sticking to swimming like I did. He learned to play violin in college and played in the orchestra. He does his own thing, a great lesson for me. Even though he's my little brother, I still learned a lot from him over the years.
Love you bro.
