thank you, Jesus, for my younger brother.
joey is the most resilient, kindhearted, and loving man in my life. he has dealt with things that most of us never have to worry about. he has pushed through time and time again, coming out stronger each time. he loves so well and so purely. he hugs me randomly throughout the day just to remind me that he loves me. he’s quick to hop up from his seat to do something for someone else and he is always willing to go above and beyond to put a smile on someone’s face. he cares for me gently and fiercely simultaneously. he is respectful of others and constantly reminds me that i am deserving of respect.
he will always have an enormous spot in my heart that cannot be tainted. i love him with everything i’ve got.
