Little Brother, you are such a blessing to me.
God has allowed me the greatest gift from day one.
As I was only a few weeks old, He allowed our mother to conceive you.
You were born before I could even have my first birthday.
Some people could actually be disturbed enough to resent that,
But I have always thought it was cool.
God gave me somebody I could always pick on.
I am sorry I beat you up so much when we were little,
But you and I both know you can squeeze the life out of me now
With a simple hug.
What a gift to have a big redneck brother to protect me.
But the true gift God has given me in your being born so close in age
Is we have shared life practically side by side,
Through the good and the bad.
We’ve always shared the coolest friends and been able
To hang out like few brothers and sisters can.
Thanks for all the laughs you have given me
And the moments you have shared your shoulder.
God has made a great man out of the friend who is also my little brother.
