July 26th commemorates my brother Tom’s birthday and although this is a few days late I wanted to recognize the day. My brother crossed over a few years ago and my life was changed irrevocably on that day. He went relatively quickly so the shock of it still resonates with me. We were close as children and as we grew to adults other responsibilities got in the way. We saw each other on holidays but that was about it. I was blessed to be a part of his passing, something I will always treasure. That being said I wish we would have carved out more time to be with each and get to know each other as adults. I always thought we would have plenty of time. Today I invite you to reach out to your sibling and give them a big hug if you can. If not give them a call and tell them you love them. It is the little things we remember and the little things we wish we would not have forgotten.
