"If y'all was capable of getting it, I wouldn't mind explaining
If y'all was capable of getting it, it wouldn't need explaining"
Time is always of the essence, so with the time I have I wanna use it to say to the people I love that I love you. Today I'm speaking to you. My guy. The person I know will never under any circumstances forget my existence, my Lil Big Bro. Life has been full of more tosses & turns than we can imagine. More losses & injuries than most get a chance to survive, & you've not only done that, you've turned each failure into it's own version of a victory & I am proud of you for masterfully doing so. You're not perfect, none of us are, & you're a work in progress daily, but you never have shied away from the thing called hard work. Sometimes you work harder than you need to, but that's a convo for another time. Today on the day that you came into this world & began your journey I just wanna highlight your growth & advancement from being the youngest & struggling to find you, to stepping into who you are & being an example of love, loyalty & support for everyone who came before you. You love family like nobody else & I have seen you do so selflessly for decades. The reward for loving like you do isn't quantifiable. It isn't something that you can hold up as a physical award. You received the very best qualities of our father & if I didn't love you as much as I did I'd be jealous instead. You are destined to be a pillar that will support the weight of generations to come. A safe space people will always remember to turn to. Sadly they'll rarely remember that you need somewhere to turn to as well, but you have never let that hinder you or alter you being you. You never let anyone disappear, & you love us individually like we all matter. Don't let anyone change you. Don't ever doubt you. Lead decisively, because you definitely are a leader & our family needs more of them. I love you bro & I am thankful to know & love you. Enjoy today. Happy Birthday!
