My brother

I am going to do something a little different on the blog this week. I thought bout this at 4am this morning when I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep. I am going to dedicate this week to family. I am going to post different family members of mine and write something special about them. :-) Ending on Father's day.  If you have a family member you would like to honor, send me a pic and a note about them and why you are honoring them and I will post on my blog. :-) 

My brother

My brother is one of the most sweetest men that I know. God truly blessed our family with him. He is 17 years older than I am and is mentally handicapped... as my mom learns more and more about autism, she is believing that he is more autistic than anything but back  45+ years ago, they didn't have  very much info on autism, so he was just said to be "mentally handicapped".

My brother has suffered more in his almost 48 years of life that any of us could imagine. And yet, he shows no signs of hatred. No signs of anger. Just love.  We could all learn so much from him. No matter what has happened to him he's never once acted out in anger or malice.  He loves with his whole heart.

He is an inspiration to me. To be a better person. To be a better Christian. To love unconditionally.

Thank you Lord from placing me in this family and especially for giving me this wonderful man to have as a brother!!

Blessings N Love

Let me know what you think... good, bad, and the downright ugly...
