Today I am thankful for the return of my “little brother” from basic training. He actually returned on Friday, but today was the first time that I got to see him. While he has been gone, his new wife and I have been able to get to know each other better. Today we spent about an hour talking and joking and reconnecting. I am so thankful for people in my life, that though we do not share genetics, accept me as their sister and love me with all my flaws.
