It seems like only yesterday that 12-year old Sam was meeting his little brother Jack for the first time. Time certainly flies though, and as hard as it is to believe, that was already more than six years ago and Sam is now enjoying life as a college freshman! Perhaps having Sam home again for the Thanksgiving holiday has me being a bit nostalgic, but I can’t help but feel pretty thankful when I see our two boys together.
The little man obviously adores his big brother, and I know that Sam’s life was absolutely and irrevocably changed the day he met Jack. Our teenage boy has grown into a fine young man, and along the way he has embraced the opportunity to care deeply for his little brother. It has been fun and fulfilling to see them share their lives and get to know each other, and we couldn’t be more proud of the two of them. From this past weekend… here they are together again enjoying the annual ritual of harvesting our holiday tree at Piper Mountain.
