Today is my youngest brother’s birthday. For the first six years of my older brother’s life he was the only boy in the house (other than Dad). He had three older sisters and three younger sisters. When Mom found out that her eighth pregnancy was with a boy who was due in October, my older brother told everyone that his mom was getting him a little brother for his birthday.
My older brother’s birthday is tomorrow, by the way. The day that my younger brother came home from the hospital was in fact his birthday.
Best. Birthday. Present. Ever.
Check out the original Thankful Thursday. (Will update link when able. Likely not for a while, though.)
