Defenseless

I have a younger brother. I don't write about him much because really, there are enough stories to completely take over this blog. I'm narcissistic enough to want this blog to be all about me all of the time.

That being said, I have to tell you something about him. He is a great guy with a wonderful loving heart. He just doesn't show it much. That kind heart is buried.  Deep.  It's pretty much covered in concrete.  It takes an awful lot to get him emotional.

Until December 25th around 11:00 at night.

The mountain of concrete was reduced to sand with the feathery nudge of an impossibly small finger. Then the exposed heart was completely and utterly wrapped around that same tiny digit.

It's amazing how a six and a half pound bundle of pink can turn a strong capable guy into a quivering pile of jello. Amazing and perfect.

Congratulations Daddy.
