LOAD 213: Day 5, Scrap someone special
I chose to scrap about my brother Phill today. I scrap a lot about my husband and my feelings for him, but what was missing from my scrapbook is my thoughts on the relationship I have with my brother Phill - so that's who I chose to scrap about today.
Phill is my quiet one. He’s strong and steady and always there. He’s the nuts and the bolts; the part that holds the whole together. His support is unwavering, his help given freely. He asks not for thanks or acclaim. He’s in the background, doing his job, providing the glue that keeps everything together. It’s often not noticed as we move through the everyday of our lives, but how lost would we be if this most required part wasn’t there. My relationship with my other brothers is louder, but this one is so meaningful for its quietness. It’s the knowing glance across the room that shows the support when neither of us can find the words to say what’s wrong. It’s the buffer to the craziness of life. I’ve watched him grow from the boy he once was to the man he now is and I’ve admired his resolve, his work ethic, his love for those who touch his heart. He’s a wonderful husband, a superb father, and someone I’m so damn proud to call my brother. He is in so many ways, my role model.
