It’s my brother John’s birthday today. We haven’t kept up as much as adults. I would remind myself to call and mostly managed to do so. It comes right before Christmas so he always seems to have the special days combined. His wife was always good to John. Here he is with each of my children when they were young. And that’s our first dog Reggie. If John looks afraid that he might drop Julia, I can say that I know the feeling well. Somehow he held on. It gets easier as you can see with David a couple years later.
