Happy Birthday Ani!

A quick shout out to my brother Ani who is turning 22 years old today! It's quick because today we are traveling* to North Cuba Miami to visit some relatives and relax a bit and I haven't finished packing, so I don't really have time to go into detail about what an incredible person he is.

But I will say this: He is my favorite brother. Even if I had another brother, he would still be my favorite.

And also this, to him directly:

"Happy Birthday man! I know you may be sad about your first birthday without the man who is responsible for your birth, but don't. Dad is still with you, I see him in you all the time. And I'm not just saying that because of your receding hairline. He is in your laughter, in the way you treat mom, in your back-breaking willingness to do anything for anybody and, mostly, in your overflowing, never-ending, sure I'll sit here and spend an hour "talking" to an old hard-of-hearing distant relative, patience. You are wise beyond your years, and I have tons to learn from you."

*Don't worry, I'm taking my laptop. There will be a blog about Luki's first plane ride. Please pray for a poop-less flight.**

**You like how I just assume you wait for my posts with baited breath? It's because I'm the most humble person I know.
