I must say that the last 10 days have been life-changing. My brother came to visit and it was his first time visiting me here. It was as if time stood still and we picked up from where we left off when we were kids. We are very close, but as adults one would not know it because our lives took opposite paths. Even when I would go home, I would typically only see my brother for a few hours or if I was lucky a day or two. To have 10 days together was a real blessing. Amazing that he and I are very much alike - we love many of the same things - and we hold similar values. Mere words cannot express how I feel right now. After my 4+ mile walk this evening, he called me while on the road and has since texted me twice. :)What a blessed feeling and admiration and love I have for my brother. Pure joy and happiness. Our re-journey together is just beginning. Happiness has indeed found me!
