a text message from a close friend shook our house today.
a horrible accident. a life gone too soon. a brother and son that will be greatly missed.
a man of character, of few words, of a giant smile.
a guy who went to church with us. two years my elder, a quiet presence
today I talked to people from my youth group I haven't had contact with in years.
reunited over a common loss.
i told my brother I loved him. he knows i'm a proud big sis.
i know he puts himself in harms way for our nation
i know his safety isn't guaranteed
i send him love and hugs thousands of miles away
thru a text message
i'm taking the time today to thank God for my brothers. all of them.
