To a good man


Today is the 19th birthday of my youngest brother, Peter (on the right in the picture). I haven't had time to find an egreeting for him yet (there's a crowd waiting to use the computer at the lab and we have to eat soon), so I thought I might as well blog about it.

Peter, you're the greatest youngest brother a girl could ask for. You have quite a group of admirers here as I've been bragging about you since I arrived in Europe. Thanks for being patient with me when I've been the farthest from it with you. Thank you for being humble when I was proud. But mostly, thank you for being you. I'm so proud of the man you're becoming and I look forward to deepening our friendship in trials and joy as you grow in the things of the Lord.

I'm thinking about you today and praying the Lord pours out blessing and favor and promises on you this day, the first of your 19th year. Happy Birthday, Pedro. I love you and am infinitely proud of you.

You're proud big sister,

Hi Peter, I want to email you but I don't have your email address, other than the rpg one. Can you email me and give me your current address? Also, I can't really call because I have no minutes left on my calling card. I'll try to work something out. But I am thinking about you. Happy Birthday man!
Your older sister...and don't you forget it :)
