Day 8: I’m Thankful for My 3 Brothers

My brothers - Gmo, Darryn and Denver

Another day of gratitude :). Believe it or not, this is getting harder and harder to write each day. There are so many things to be grateful for, I have a hard time choosing each day. I feel like these posts might need to go on for life, just to express all that I am thankful for.

How can I not acknowledge the three boys that gave me thick skin? πŸ™‚ G-mo (yes, pronounced GeeMo), Darryn, and Denver are, without a doubt, the best brothers this world has ever seen. I smile, laugh, and cry as I type this (and cringe…I know I’ll get some kind of crap from them for being so mushy ;)).

These boys taught me to never take myself so darn seriously. They taught me to laugh at myself when others (or they) laugh at me. They taught me that blood is thicker than water. Some friends can come and go…family is there for life. They taught me that we can fight like cats and dogs one second, but we’re all hugs and high fives the next. Nothing will ever change how much we all love, support, and got each others backs. They taught me that there is no one I’d rather fight for me than my brothers (alongside Chris, of course)…they take family seriously, and no one better mess with their sister (except them, of course).

They remind me each day that I will always just be their little or big sister…and help keep me grounded with all we have going on in life. These boys will never let my head get too big no matter how crazy this roller coaster gets, and for that, I am forever grateful.

They remind me daily by their examples that family is the most important thing in this world.

They are the best family I could ever have.

I love and am so thankful for my brothers πŸ™‚

  1. I am one of 8 children, 1 boy (the oldest) and 7 girls. We lost our brother in 1990 to AIDS and I miss him everyday. He taught me that I am smart. :o)

  2. I have 4 brothers, 3 older and 1 almost 10 years younger and no sisters so I can completely relate to your post. We grew up in the country so if I wanted to play I played like a boy! I played tackle football, climbed trees, caught salamanders and whatever else they did because there wasn’t anyone else around! By the time I was 4 I was climbing the tallest maple tree around!! Probably gave my mom more scares than all my brother’s combined! I definitely learned to be tough and strong! !

  3. Thanks so much Heidi! That was awesome and can’t even begin to explain how grateful I am to have such an amazing, helpful, fun, cool, and giving sister. I love ya

  4. Nothing like the protection and love you get from brothers. I’m the baby girl in my house so I know exactly how you feel.
