Happy 20th birthday to the brother I absolutely adore.

Growing up is a funny thing, and lots of times growing up means growing apart. But not always.

And growing up has phases and stages and moments, and this phase we’re in is living separately, both away from home, but working at the same place, sitting on either end of assorted family members in church, catching up on car rides and outings with just the two of us.

And this phase, as busy as my life and your life are, is a good one. One of texting catch ups and 7-second snap chats, and laughing about stories from yesterday and fifteen years ago.

And the next phase will be different- maybe a little different, maybe a lot- but you’ll always be my brother,

And that is enough for me.
