Big scare

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

My brother was in an accident yesterday. Nothing in this world can prepare you for a call or message that says "your brother has been in an accident, we don't know how he is".

Growing up, my brother and I fought like cat and dog. I did not have any time for him, my little sibling who I resented for being the baby of the family and for not having been born a girl (I wanted a sister). My parents never tried to enforce friendship upon us, but by some small miracle, as we got older, we started liking each other.

A few years ago, when my brother got engaged and got married, we grew closer. Then, when I got married last year, my brother and sister-in-law were my biggest supports and champions.

I love my brother so very much.

The shock I went into waiting to hear news, it was terrible. But fortunately, my brother is ok. Bruised, shaken and with a very bad headache after being concussed - but he is alive and I can tell him I love him again.

    So glad he's ok! I got a similar phone call about a year and a half ago, my 'little' brother, whom I've had to look up to make eye contact with since high school, was in a wreck and ended up losing his leg. It certainly puts all those petty childhood dramas into perspective in a hurry! I'm glad your brother is ok and that you have grown so close to him!
