Dear Brother

"It was nice growing up with someone like you- someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on!"

Dear Brother,

You are the quintessential younger brother. You wake me up in the morning by pouring cold water on my face. You hide the remote control so I can't change the channel on TV. You steal my phone and text guys things like "Thinking about you" and "I want you so bad". You eat all the popcorn in the bowl before I can get any. You slip ice down the back of my shirt when I'm not looking, and take embarrassing pictures of me while I'm sleeping and post them on the internet.

You also look to me for advice. Call me up when you're nervous about something. Confide in me. Text me things like "Miss you already" an hour after you drop me off at school. Accompany me on anything from shopping trips to road trips to "prank the neighbors" trips. Record my favorite show when you know I won't be home. Defend me when people talk bad about me behind my back, and are content with staying at home with me watching movie marathons for the entire day.

I could say you're my best friend, but you're more than that- you're my brother. And that will always be forever.

Love you,
Faith

  7. This was awesome. What a lucky girl you are to have such a great relationship with your brother! It makes me want to call my brother up and tell him how much I love him- too bad it's 1 in the morning! Thank you for sharing this though, I loved it!

  12. Hey Faith, me dejaste con lágrimas en los ojos. Eres una persona afortunada, ¿lo sabías, no? He crecido soñando tener un hermano/a y no sabes la envidia que le tengo a una gran parte de la gente por tenerlos. A veces realmente me frustra ver que no saben aprovecharlos pero entonces sé que es parte de la hermandad los gritos, las peleas y los enojos. Es algo que por mucho que continúe esperando, sé que nunca llegará. Así que déjame decirte lo orgullosa y hasta feliz que me hace sentir que puedas compartir un sentimiento así, un lazo de familia que sabés que nunca se acabará.
    Es realmente precioso lo que has escrito y espero que tu hermano lo haya leído o lo lea en un futuro.
    Te deseo lo mejor,
    Cinthia.

    PD. Te escribí en Twitter y te pregunté sobre la posibilidad de escribir una carta en español o en inglés para publicarla. Si no es posible, no hay problema :)
