Happy Birthday!!!!

I want to send out a very special birthday wish to my big brother Jeff. He turns 39 today!! (I hope he doesn't mind me telling his age).
He is the very best brother any girl could have. He has such a caring heart and would give anyone in need the shirt off his back. When we moved, he worked like a one armed paper hanger to get the our stuff out of the old house and into the new. When we brought Gracie home from the hospital, he woke up at 6 a.m. and cut our grass. He didn't like the way it looked so he cut it two more times just to get it right. But that's just Jeff, ever the helper. It reminds me of when I was in the 5th grade and was having trouble with my locker. There is nothing more traumatizing than not being able to get your locker open (boy, life sure was tough..haha). Jeff was a Junior, who by all standards, should have been "too cool" to come help a lowly 5th grader with her locker. But he did!!! That's just Jeff, ever the helper.
I also have some funny stories about Jeff. When a I got older, he would borrow T-Shirts from me and then cut the sleeves out of them so he wouldn't have to give them back. Or the time he caught the kitchen cabinets on fire with the toaster. That was pretty funny.
I just hope he has the best day and knows that his family loves him!!!
