When I was home in Australia last month we were having a dinner with family friends and the conversation topic turned to blogging and more specifically the Thankful Thursday posts I have been writing. The previous week I had just written this post, expressing how thankful I am to have such strong role models through my parents when it comes
to love and relationships. Mitch piped up and said “So when are you going to write about me?!” I replied: “When I am thankful for you!”
To some, that response may seem a little harsh, but Mitch and I have somewhat of a unique relationship, especially considering we are each others’ only sibling.
We have never been super close but when the going gets tough we always know the other person will be there.
He has always been my big protector; from chasing boys away during elementary school (they still had cooties then!) to watching out for me and my heart as I ventured into the world of dating.
He has taught me patience, compassion, perseverance, and to learn to let go and laugh at life when the time calls for it.
Mitch, thank you for being you.
