So I asked them. All because My sweet husband was at a camp at FSCSC serving the same way he did back "in the day" where he met his Little Brother. I kept asking many questions. He shared things that gave a warmth to my heart and a smile to my face. Soo while on my way to go visit my sweet Lover, I inquired more. How? When? Where? Who? What? and a simple request of a family photo. =) All precious. All answered. It came to a quotiant that = PRICELESS!!!!
Upon meeting up with the Love of my life; I told him, "You're never going to believe what happened while you were gone!" I preceeded to tell him. Showed him pictures. Then He smiled and said, "You know I was just thinking about him a few weeks ago. What are the odds?" I showed him every correspondance we had with one another and the questions answered on both sides. Again he smiled! I smiled more because it took us back quite a few years.
A few years that came to a significant Discovery I ask? YES. Why? Simply because one man remembered someone who cared for him when he was younger. One man who called him his Little Brother and he became his Big Brother. I remember how They spent time together. I remember the smiles on both their faces. I sometimes would wonder back then, "Will it really make a difference for them in the future?" We moved out of state many years ago; after finishing our education as a young married couple. All of that to see the wonderful search that is the present that was given as a "present of joy". A few years to the FUTURE ~ But to know that now that same "Little Brother" has a beautiful family of his own. =) And He too, as an adult, has also moved to another state.
In a state of mind that left a deep joy; one of the last things he mentioned that made quite an impression (before asking permission to write about our re aquaintence; and permission granted), (paraphrased since something happened before I put in "all" in writing. He said, "I have never forgotten him or the two of you and I have thought about him . . .."
What a Great SURPRISE. What a warm greeting. What a WONDERFUL DISCOVERY to see his family and to know he remembered enough to search us out and NEVER FORGET us to be able to say: "DISCOVERY: FOUND!!!!"
Here is to you Little Brother - _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ a dedication and a Thank You for searching diligently and your discovery of finding us! Your family is Beautiful!
