it has been YEARS since we're celebrated my brother's birthday as a family. he is doing so flippin' well that i get getty just thinking about all the progress he's made. he's still on the road to recovery and will be forever, but he's clean and free of the awful grasp of drugs. he has been an example of strength to me.
"you are stronger than you realize and more capable than you can imagine" (one of my favorite quotes from president uchtdorf). i know this is true as my brother is living proof of it. way to go brother! i am so proud of you. thank you for sticking with it. i love you.
