BMT Day 55: Happy Birthday, Rebecca!

I must confess that I really wanted to write about the Confederate battle flag today, why it’s being taken down, and the failure of politicians and especially the media to get it right. Unfortunately, I’ve felt progressively worse through the day and have had the fighting spirit knocked out of me.

I decided to expand on something just as important to me–obviously for very different reasons–that I posted a bit of on Facebook earlier today.

Boo & Me on Maine Beach
This picture shows just how huggable a little peanut can be when you need a hug from a little peanut (if that sentence doesn’t make sense to you, I apologize). I love you very much, Rebecca and want thank you for keeping me going this year. You’ve made time to listen to me and encourage me. You’ve made sure I was all right, and when I wasn’t, you made time to talk to me about why not. Your insight is boundless and I always know I can turn to you for ideas, whether it’s on feeling better or suavely ushering everyone out of my hospital room when you sensed I needed a break. I hope we can celebrate together next year, too.

Love you, Boo,
–Brother.

Reading your reflections on Rebecca made my day. Blessings to both of you.
