My Brothers Rock!!

I am not sure that I have ever talked about my brothers before, but I have some great ones!!  I am the youngest of the 3 kids {and the only girl}, and so it took a long time for my brother's and I to get along.  We don't talk every day, but we see each other a lot more than we have in years and have the best relationship we've had in many years!!

When my parents divorced when I was in 9th grade, both of my brothers went with my mom, and I stayed with my dad.  I believe this was the start of our separation.  We all had our own lives as we grew, and it just became easier to not have any contact.  My whole extended family has never really been close {we tend to only see each other at Christmas}, which is polar opposite of my husband's family.  That is another post all in its own, and I am getting really off topic.

My middle brother, Doug, is a computer genius!  He really is!  He works for a company that deals with computer problems for many apartment communities and he is amazing at it!!  He is the first {and only} person I call when we are having computer problems.  He was super swamped with work this week, but he still took time out one night after work and drove over to fix our computer.  It was a super easy fix {took maybe 10 minutes total}, and our computer is running great again!!  I am so thankful for my brother taking time out of his busy schedule to come help out his little sis just in the nick of time {since I start my collage classes on Monday}!

My oldest brother Aron is amazing too!  He battled addiction for many many years.  He has slowly turned his life around, and is doing so great!  He drives 2 hours to go to school at night a few times a week, and still works full time.  He has decided now that he wants to start a support group for other recovering addicts in his area!  I am so proud of him and how much he has grown in the past few years!

I am truly blessed to have a wonderful family, and I just wanted to take a minute to brag :)

What a sweet post. I wish I could say nice things about my 2 of my brothers right now, but that's not going to happen.
