Thankful Series - Wednesday

Wednesday:  I am thankful for - My Little Bro Joe

This is my little brother Joe. He was born 5 years 2 months and 8 days after me. It was tough having a little brother come into my world as an only child. I remember thinking I can't wait to have a little brother! Then when he finally got here, I thought what the hell was I thinking!?
We pretty much "hated" each other for most of our childhood. When I say hate, I don't really mean hate. Now that I look back on growing up with him it's funny. We fought, a lot, but we were always there for each other and were always together making each other laugh. 
 As we got older, I graduated high school and he started, we grew apart a little. Just older and always with our friends. Our lives took a big turn when my brother graduated...

Just before his graduation I just got married. This is when we really became the best of friends. We had some bad things happen to us with our parents and figured out all we really have, family-wise, is each other. I don't know what I would do with out my little bro. He makes me laugh when I'm down. He knows most of my secrets, he loves my husband probably as much as I do. We both are there for each other no matter what. 

My most memorable and favorite moment with Joe was his 21st Birthday we just celebrated in Vegas! We had the best time! I will never forget it :)

Thanks for always being there when I need to talk JoeJoe. I love you and I am so thankful I have you. 
Love, Jessica
