Your brother is the most important man in your life. Your brother knows your faults but he will always be there to defend you. It might come as a surprise to some, but your brother is someone who loves you unconditionally.
Jen Ruiz writes that Dads get a lot of credit. They have their own holiday, special gift baskets and the biggest serving at the dinner table. Too often, little brothers get overlooked. They don’t get anywhere near the kind of recognition they deserve, and that’s a shame.
At the end of the day, while your dad might be a key figure in your life, you’ll find that the person who’s right there next to you, through thick and thin, is actually your brother.
Somewhere along the way, that little goofball you never took seriously grew up to be more than just your annoying little brother; he became your best friend.
Grateful people are happy people. Being grateful brings you blessings and loads of happiness. Gratitude will bring you kindness, joy and will keep you humble. Be grateful for your brother, take the next opportunity to thank him, I am certain there will be a reason to be thankful.
