Thank You for Being the Brother I Never Had

Thank You for Being the Brother I Never Had

By: Abigail bennett

Honestly, when we met I didn't know you'd have this big of an impact on my life. 

Thank you for being my call to the rescue no matter what time it is. 

I can call you at 3 am in tears and you’ll be at my house in 10 minutes with a box of tissues, ready to kick someone’s ass. 

I wouldn’t trade your advice for the world. You’re so brutally honest (sometimes not always in the best ways, but I’ll take what I can get) that I know I can always trust your word. 

Thank you for all the endless laughs.

Sometimes all I need is an escape from reality. To know that there is someone out there who can distract me with such ridiculous humor that I completely forget about the world around me.

And you are that person for me. 

No matter what we do, you never let a moment pass without making me smile. You make even the most mundane tasks enjoyable and that is a talent. 

Thank you for taking me as I am and never trying to change me. 

I’ll be the first to admit I can be a lot to handle. I can be a mess, I can get too caught up in petty drama that doesn’t actually matter, I can go days without washing my hair and I know, it’s gross, but let me live my life.  

And I’ve gone through too many phases I can’t even count them. From being super obsessed with finding love to being that bad ass independent chick, you’ve stuck by my side through it all. 

You’re the one person I can be my true, crazy self with and for that I’m forever in grateful. 

I mean, are you even really friends if you don’t send each other snaps with six double chins and chip crumbs on your shirt?

Thank you for supporting even my dumbest decisions. 

Yeah, you definitely shouldn't have let me do half the things that I’ve done, but I’m grateful you let me learn from my own mistakes. 

You’ve never doubted me in the slightest and have always shown me that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. Sure, there are always going to be some roadblocks and speed bumps along the way. But with you by my side, I can handle just about anything.  

Thank you for being the brother I never had. 

You’ve been protective over me like family since day 1. You would literally beat up any guy for me and I couldn’t be luckier to have you as my best friend. 

I never knew someone could mean so much to me and treat me so well. You are the anchor that keeps me from floating away and for that, I love so much.
