Sir, I Do Say My Apologies

So, today is my "brother closest in age to me's" birthday. Seriously, that's how I refer to him. I just thought about that. Scott is, "My oldest brother," Mark is... we all know what I refer to him as. My older brother that looks younger. ;).
Anyway, I did txt you today Chris. Then it got to late to call. I hope you had an insanely good day. I hope that this year is your best yet. I absolutely love your comments. They are always so insightful and your quotes make my journal every time. The actual private journal that is not posted for anyone to see. I especially loved your comment from yesterday with the story about the guy that treated every single person he met as if it was their last year of life. I am nice everyday, today I was extra nice, to the guy at the post office, the checker at the grocery store and even my dogs. They got extra treats cause of you. It was like a little birthday present for them, since you are an animal lover. You are an inspiration. I love you dearly. Happy Birthday!

To my dear sister,

Thank you and you've made my day. Yesterday's post was wonderful and clearly touched a lot of people - you are a Lighthouse against a foggy sea. In another touch of irony, the following was in my morning email from The Universe:

In both relationships and life, Chris, trust begets trust.

Generosity begets generosity.

Love begets love.

Be the spark, especially when it's dark.

I received this smack on the heels of re-reading yesterday's "CBTCK" blog-post - irony's ironic don'tcha think?

Brother Chris, I had that message from the universe, too. Tut must have thought we both needed the same advise yesterday. Hope you had a great day!

Happy Birthday Chris. I do miss you and your slightly off-kilter look at life like crazy. It's been too long...
Love,
Jen

What dear friends my sister has. Thank you all for the kind words and as a gift to me, be generous with someone today, in any way, big or small.

I think Friend Lula said 'best sister' when she meant 'best brother' - oops. Methinks the boxed wine doth pour too much.
