Admiration

I took a few photos of my front door while waiting for my brother!
It's seemed to take a while, so I snapped one to my right!
Then another to my left!
This is my baby brother after a wonderful dinner filled with
intimate conversation, about life, love, friends and children!
We don't spend enough time together but when we do,
we never run out of things to talk about!



He's a funny man with the biggest most tender heart! He loves his children as dearly
as I love mine. He has a difficult time understanding fathers who don't go that extra
mile for their kids. For he says his heart is forever tied to the heart of children, emotionally and through blood.

I have a vision for my brother. That one day he will be an inspirational speaker for men less evolved. My brother has a pretty profound story, so much wisdom to share with others. He's had his share of adversity, been through divorce and come out a much better man. I like who he's becoming! A softer, kinder, thoughtful, wiser man! We all have demons, he's no exception, but what he has to share, about what he's learned could connect fathers to their children on a deeper level.

One of my best relationships as a teen, was with my dad. He really knew me. My brothers experience with dad was different being he was five years younger. He was closer to mom, which sons often are. When I have a real heartfelt talk with my brother, I get that exact same feeling as I did all those many years ago during intimate conversations with dad. That's when I know,the seed really doesn't fall far from the tree!

Great photos, good looking brother.
It's good to hear he loves his kids and will go the extra mile to be with them and make a good life for them. That is so important.
