Today was Eric's 45th birthday. I have said before that my brother is truly one of the world's greatest people, in every sense of the word - yes I love him because he's my brother, but the place he holds in my heart is more similar to that of my children, though I didn't recognize that until I had kids. It's hard to explain, and I have fallen short so many times in life, but I want to give my brother anything I can, because he asks for almost nothing!
It was a good day . . . And while I know he was extremely grateful, it made my heart happy to see him smile all day long. 45 years of life . . . And here's to another 45 with my brother, the beloved Uncle Eric!
