My brother. My favorite person in the world. The single little man who changed the person I was into the person I am. Nothing can express the intense love I have for this little boy. Although he is growing (way too fast) into such a little man, he will always be my little brother. I will never forget the mornings he would walk into my bedroom and say “bye Stacy, I love you”. His hugs and kisses. His laughs and words that he couldn’t pronounce correctly. He has brought such a joy to my life. I will never forget our times together. Our laughs and how we just have this unbreakable bond that could never be replaced. No matter how far away we are, when I go home, I feel like nothing has changed. We pick right back up where we left off. And I love that about us.
When he came into this world, I never knew what love was until he graced us with his smile, his laugh and his endless love and affection. We treated him like a mature little man, not a baby boy. We raised him into this growing little man with a great big heart full of love and potential. He’s mature, he’s polite and he’s got a heart of gold. I am so beyond proud of him. And as he struggles to find his place in this world as the years go on, I will always be here to provide the love and support he needs. I will never judge, never criticize. I just hope to be a role model for him.
So today, I am thankful for you, Nicholas. You have made life so much more fun. Much more enjoyable. You made me want to be a mother myself. You will never truly know how much I love you and would do anything in this world for you. I think about you and worry about you every single day and I miss you more than I can describe. I love you so much little brother. I am so thankful for you and for our bond. You will always be my most favorite person in this world.
