Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. -Marc Brown

my lola (mom's mom) + my brother : i love old family photographs

Happy Birthday to my brother Marco!!!

this year i am SO thankful that i don't have to send a birthday package to Iraq.

but remembering that, reminds me how thankful i am for the immense kindness of otherwise complete and beautiful strangers who sent him birthday cards/care packages last year on his birthday. i will always be so thankful to you lovies. 


i will always be ever so thankful to God for keeping him safe overseas.

elizabeth your comment made me so sad because i know you've been through this before...

i know how hard it is to go through it again because it doesn't make it easier.. it surely wasn't when my brother deployed for his THIRD year tour. Let me know if you need someone to send a care package, i would be SO HAPPY to send one! xoxo and i'll keep him in my prayers.
