The Best Things About having a BROTHER....

     Welcome to all the Mom 2 Memphis and Ruby readers. It is time once again for the Tuesday 10 link-up. This week's Tuesday 10 is.... Ten reasons I love ________. Well, if you have been reading then you know I have a brother. So mine is about the best things about a brother.

 1.  I love that my brother is my best friend. I have friends but my brother will be there when nobody else is and me for him. I never knew how special a brother could be. 
     2.  I love that no matter what my brother is doing, if I have a problem, he always has the best advice. 
     3.  I really love that my brother is always there for me. We may live 400 miles apart but just a phone call and it is as if he is right here beside me. 
     4.  I love that my brother is so forgiving. You see, I turned and walked away the one time I met him when he was only 11 years old. He didn't understand why. He just knew that I turned and never came back. I didn't realize that I had hurt him so much but yet he forgave me. 
    5.   Lately, I love that my brother has a big strong shoulder to cry on. I have cried on his shoulder every time I have left unless he isn't home when it is time for me to leave his house. Lately, I cry on his shoulder over the phone. But it always makes me feel better. I don't cry in front of many people, especially men but my brother, well there is just a bond there that can't be broken. 
     6.  I love that we have so many things in common. We didn't grow up together but we still see things the same way and have the same values. 
     7.  I absolutely love hanging out with my brother. Whether it is riding his motorcycle or going to the beach or just sitting around watching tv. The time that I get to spend with him is the best. 
     8.  I love that my brother aggravates me. As I said before, we didn't get to grow up together so I missed alot of the aggravating and picking that siblings do to one another but we are making up for that. Let me tell you, he is one tough pillow fighter. I have to get my licks in before he gets me because I just cannot win against him. 
     9.  This is going to sound silly coming from a grown woman but I love that I have someone to play with. Whether we are playing chess on the computer or bowling on the wii or just being silly, I finally have someone to play with. 
     10.  I love that my brother is so patient. No matter what, he takes the time with me, no matter how dumb I can be about things, and explains or shows me and never gets in a hurry or makes me feel like he doesn't have time. 
     Oh, one more thing, and the most important thing is that my brother loves me and I have no doubt about that. My Bubba is the bestest brother in the whole wide world and I am so thankful and blessed that God prepared me to me my brother and give me my best friend.

    1. I LOVE number 9 too. It is crazy but we play and act silly. We didn't grow up together so now we have reverted back to childhood...

  2. Just reading posts like this puts a smile on my face. You have gone through so much and God decided it was time for y'all to meet and make a long awaited connection. That connection has now grown into a bond that cannot be broken. So happy for both of you.
