"TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)"

Today's song was #1 in Billboard's Top 100 when my brother was born. I tried (but failed) to find an appropriate song about turning 40 because...

My brother is 40 years old today!!!

Y'all have seen the following pictures before, but I made this little #TransformationTuesday collage for IG & thought I'd post it here, too!

I have been so blessed to be Kerry's sister & friend for my entire life. He has always been on my side, and I am so grateful for that. When it was trendy to become "blood brothers" with our childhood friends, we pricked our fingers and held them together {as if we weren't already -- legitimately -- blood brother & sister!} He's the one friend I never pushed away during the years when I was afraid to let anyone get too close. I will always treasure the letters he wrote me during college and the military. And I'm so grateful for the many years of drill weekends when he would stay at my home one weekend each month. I'm so glad that we now live close enough to each other that our kids are able to grow up with their cousins.

I am so proud of the man that Kerry is. He has done well with his first 40 years, and I look forward to seeing what the next 40 hold. ♥
