little brother

 today my littlest brother turns 18.
i cant believe that 18 years have come & gone. 
i was 5 when he was born. i can remember when my mama
had him in her belly. 

i rememember when i prayed that he would really be a sister.
& i remember when i was thankful that he was a brother.

dylan & i were really close growing up.
i could always get him to play with me & to hang out with me whenever i wanted him to. {my other brother was way more independent..} hey, d, remember when i would ask you to come sit on my bed & talk while i cleaned my room- & then sucked you into cleaning it with me?! hehe. 

my brother is so amazing. 
he is incredibly creative.
you can check out his design blog, here
he got all the artistic genes.

i have loved watching him grow & watching him become the boy man that the LORD designed him to be. he is a hardworker - he just recently worked so many hours planning & preparing & teaching at the VBS that his church puts on. it shows his amazing servants heart. he loves to serve those around him. like, how he would come pick up my girl at 5:45 or 6 am so i could go to work. a mazing! 

happy birthday, D ray! i love you so much!
