Today Is My Brother, Tommie's Birthday
Both of my brothers are special and so is my sister. I usually don't write about them much but I wanted to write about my brother Tommie as he is going through a difficult time right now.
I don't know all the details about his medical issue but I am smart enough to know it is serious. I pray for him on a daily basis and I call my Dad to get updates. I don't want him to think I am a pest so I don't bother him with except a few notes to let him know I am praying for him.
Growing up Tommie was quite the guy around town. All the girls like him and I was just a nerd that wasn't cool. I watched him in hopes of getting some pointers but I never learned enough to be of any help to me.
My first double date was with him and the girl he was dating at the time. Needless to say neither of these girls worked out for us. Looking back I think that bowling date was the beginning of a very disappointing time in my life.
The best part of it was I got two special children out of it. Paul my son who I love very much and my daughter Faith who I love very much even during difficult times.
Back to Tommie and his situation. I hope all of you out there who are reading this will say a prayer for him. I know he would appreciate it.
Tommie isn't the kind of guy who seeks to get your attention. He is a sweet and loving guy who has worked hard all his life. He is a very special guy to me and I hope that today he has a very special birthday.
May God bless him today with a very special day.
