Thankful Day 14

Chowing down on cake.  I do love cake!  This is my brother next to me.
Tonight I am thankful for an improved relationship with my brother.  It wasn't so much that we didn't get along as we didn't take the time to be together. I had tried several times but gave up when it didn't happen.  He has had some major health problems which is what precipitated the time together now. I have gone to some of his appointments with him and tried to be there for him. I am very proud of him and the things he is doing to improve his health.  Tonight was his son's wedding and I loved being there to share it with him.

sometimes family relationships are the most difficult ones to manage. Glad you are getting closer to your brother.
BTW, that cake must be really good, your brother looks like he would want some too.
