Another birthday

Today is the birthday of another special person to me – my brother James. He’s 20 years old.

It is a very strange thing to realize I have three siblings now in their twenties. And that I am old enough to have three siblings in their twenties – and still be older than them!

Ten years ago today I left home – and it feels like so much longer in some senses, and just like yesterday. I was looking at pictures today of James – pictures of him going cross-eyed, making silly faces and doing goofy things. I remember those moments like yesterday.

And now he is a grown young man – coming into his own and discovering adult life.

Ten years ago I was 20. Hard to believe too. He will have a different journey than me – different things to discover, learn, heal and grow.

Happy birthday dear James. I love you more than I can express in words.
