A Big Thanks To My Brother ADAM!

My brother stopped by tonight and shoveled a TON of snow out of our driveway! AND, I forgot to give him cookies! Darn it, I even had his favorite kind made! Anyway, it made a HUGE difference and now if we ever get Dan's car home, he has a spot to park it. Adam was amazing in his Tahoe plowing through all the snow and then shoveling it all out of the way. Thanks so much big brother.

Adam and I were probably close as kids, but as always I remember fighting with him the most. When he went away to college, I realized how much I loved and missed him. We were close from then on out. Adam drove me and waited for hours while I broke up with my high school first love, Adam was there while I cried on the floor when Dan was told he was being deployed for 6 months (luckily the orders were canceled), Adam was there when I freaked out the boys weren't moving enough in-utero and took care of my worries, and he was here to drive me to the hospital while I puked in his car from a kidney stone. The point? He's always here when I need him. And I'm so grateful. I'm grateful he married someone wonderful that is there for me too and that I can call one of my best friends. Thanks for being such a great big brother, I appreciate you more than you'll ever know...especially since neither you nor your wife read this.

So cute! It was around college time that my brother and I became so much closer too:) So lucky that you live so close to him!
