A Letter to my Brother in Heaven

Dear Nene,
Its been exactly one year since god called you home. It feels like forever since I've seen your face. There's not one day that you don't cross my mind or a memory of you flashes back to me. I think of what a strong young man you were for so many years and how you were ALWAYS there for me. Life without you is very different. I miss you so much!! I keep hoping and wishing I would wake up from this nightmare of you not being here but I don't and days pass by. I thought we would never be apart and I wish I could give you a hug and kiss and tell you I love you one last time. The fact that I will never get to physically see you again in person or hear your voice kills me. Seeing mom live her life with a broken heart really sucks. I don't think she will ever be the same no matter what, but I still pray that the pain she feels mends a little. You have touched my life so much and showed me that life has more meaning and I shouldn't take that for granted. Since you passed my heart has been heavy but Ive been less selfish. Thinking of all the simple things that made you happy like a cd or your radio or wallet make me take a step back when things don't go my way. You lived a simple life and were so grateful for everything. You are and always will be my hero. I wish you were still here to meet your niece she reminds me a lot of you. As she grows up I will make sure she knows who you are and that your legacy lives on. I'm completely lost for words still and cant even finish this letter but because of you I know the value of life and how precious time is.

I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.

I have responsibilities to fulfill.

I am important.

My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don't have more
money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body, and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.

And Here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me.

I get to chose what kind of day I will have.

Make it a great one!
