"Life is short but sweet, you only get to live it once, so love with all your heart, smile with all your might, and laugh with all your friends and live life."
I borrowed this from a friend on facebook. The only way I would change it would be "to laugh with your family and friends". I talked with my brother today for over an hour and the whole time we talked, I was laughing so hard that my stomach hurt. I haven't laughed that much in such a long time. We shared stories about growing up, things at work and of course politics. We poked fun at ourselves and the rest of the family. The poking at the family was done in fun, nothing that was hurtful. I love my brother with all my heart. He is the baby and I am the oldest in the family. When he was born, I was sixteen. My mother had the baby blues and I ended up taking care of him quite a bit. I am sure that a lot of the neighbors that he was mine. Nobody picked on my baby brother. I remember one time he got into fight with the neighborhood bully. At the time, my brother was very scrawny and the other kid was big and heavy. When I heard of the fight, I had run over there and protected my baby brother. Nobody was going to beat him up. I let the kid know that next time he wanted to pick a fight he better think carefully about who he chose to pick on. Because if he picked on my brother again, I was going to knock him down and sit on him. Very lady like of course. I know and my brother knows that wherever we are we can call on the other for help and we will come running. In fact that goes for all of my family. We are a one for all and all for one family. If you take on one, you take on all of us. I am so lucky and honored to be part of such a family. Love you family.
