i am extra thankful for my big brother today.
he is so good at mending my heart without even knowing he’s doing it. he pulls my chair closer while we’re out so he can put his arm around me, holds the door open (gentleman - this small action never goes unnoticed), picks up the tab while we’re out (frustrating after a while, but i’m always grateful for this), takes me out to coffee to share our lives and stay in the loop with each other, takes me to a boutique and buys me a dress for no reason whatsoever, always invites me over to hang out with his friends, and a plethora of other things.
thankful that after him living so far away for so long (college in wisconsin, military training in virginia and california, deployments to afghanistan, service work in guatemala), that he now lives less than a mile from me and i can see him whenever i want. he has spoiled me when it comes to finding a man who even comes close to treating me as well as he does, haha. i really, really love that man.
