To My Boyfriend's Brothers, Thank You For Everything

I never could have imagined that I'd gain this kind of friendship with you all.

Dear Boys,

Since there's 4 of you, I'd have to write a book to thank you all individually. But this will be kept short, sweet and to the point.

You guys are amazing. From the bottom of my heart, I can't thank you guys enough. I'm sure you're wondering why, as I've only been with your brother for what most would see as a short time.

In the time that I've been with your brother, I've gotten to know all of you. While many will see you as one whole family, I've learned just how different you all can be as brothers. How your personalities differ, your interests and who you are as an overall person. You each share the common similarities, but I've gotten to see you in a way, not many get the experience of.

While those that don't know you will categorize all of you as just funny, musically talented, boys...I see you as the 4 individual people that you are.

You all are so talented and smarter beyond your years. I've never seen a group of boys as mature as the 4 of you. Growing up with siblings isn't easy, especially when you have that many. I'm sure as you got older, it was tough to determine your own identity. One that isn't a part of those older or younger. But one that is all, you.

And you guys are different.

You guys took me in with open arms. I know it isn't easy when a brother takes in a new female (even more uneasy in our situation). But you all shared your lives with me and never hesitated to make me feel at home. From the moment we all met (which was all at different times), I could see the kind souls you all possess.

It's as if I had gained 4 extra brothers myself. You all have the protectiveness where if I knew I were in trouble, you'd answer on the first ring of the phone.

But nothing compares to the love you have for your brother. My heart grows warm whenever I see you guys with him. Brothers bicker and they fight, but I've watched you all mature in the, almost, year I've been seeing him. I've seen how each of you have helped shape who he is. To say parents do all the work in shaping their children is wrong.

While your parents (love you guys) have done so much to prepare you boys for the life you wish to live, you all used your own experiences to help shape the other. From finding the right instrument, to knowing what career path you want to pursue. You have a certain love for one another that, you really can't find in most siblings.

Let alone 5 boys.

Thank you, all 4 of you, for accepting me as your own. I love being able to call all of you some of my closest friends. Most importantly, thank you for loving your brother. Giving him the strength to where he is today. Being there to lift his spirits when he's down. I know you guys grew up with a lot of differences, but to watch you guys grow from your past has been an incredible journey.

I can't wait to see where life takes us all. Especially the 4 of you.

Love always,

Your brother's girlfriend.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads

I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

A Reminder To My Little Brother, You Are One Of My Largest Blessings

My baby brother deserves the world and more.

135

My not so little brother Nicholas, is one of my life's greatest blessings. He is childish, yet mature for his age, the one I protect but also the one who protects me. If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would feel this way, I am not so sure I would have believed you.

Siblings whether you like it or not, are tied to you for life. They are the people who understand you best, know you forwards and backwards, and simply know what you go through on a daily basis.

Nicholas and I, while younger had the classic older sister younger brother relationship. Kicking and screaming at one another over the silliest of things, and very rarely giving the other as little as a hug. Fighting like cats and dogs. But regardless of all this we were always protective of each other.

I would say our relationship shifted for the better, when times got the hardest in our house. We relied on one another. Comforted and supported one another. It was different and in the best way possible. Thankful for these hard times. Simply because without it, I wouldn't be as close to Nicky.

I believe in my brother. I see the best in him always, even when others at times doubt him. I know that right now as a teenage boy, these times are confusing. You're confused about where you fit in this life. And I want you to know that wherever you end up, I am by your side.

High school is complicated and so is navigating who you are. But do not ever worry Nicky, because I am here to remind you when you forget just how special you are. Here are some reasons why!

Reason one; because whenever you see someone hurting you immediately warm them with one of the tightest yet softest hugs. Overwhelming people with this sense of comfort and support. You may not offer motivational words, but you are there with quiet strength for those you love.

Reason two; that goofy smile paired with the deepest of dimples can light up just about any room and heart. You have a charisma about you bud, one that many people are drawn to. This is something that will carry you through life.

Reason three; even though you like to pretend you do not care about most things, all you want is to be accepted and seen. Just like the rest of the world. You are relatable, you work hard, you fiercely protect and care for your friends and family. You do not even realize it but you have the tools to influence so many other people. Do not be scared to unlock the potential of your greatness.

Reason four; you are so bright. Some people truthfully just do not fit the mold of educational systems. That is okay that you are one of them, and just because you cannot conform to this doesn't diminish the fact that your brain is larger than life. No other 15 year old I know, becomes interested in conversation of bitcoin let alone has productive thoughts on the matter. You're going to be successful in your own ways, despite what your report card says.

These reasons barely scratch the surface as to why I believe in you. Sometimes, as humans we need to be reminded that we are doing great. That regardless of how messy our worlds seem not, one day they will make sense. And we will discover our greater purpose.

Like I said, Nicholas' potential is endless. I truthfully believe that. Because that is what a sibling does. They believe in one another, when it seems like the rest of the world doesn't. Nicky may be younger than me, but I learn so much from him. And as I play the role of the older sister, I also discover things about myself too.

I do not think Nicholas understands truthfully how special he is. How much he warms our hearts and home. He was the best addition to our family and he is one of the largest blessings in my life personally as well. I am so thankful.

This is a corny tribute, however one that is so necessary. Simply because I cannot help but gush about my baby brother. I love you to the moon and back Nicky, keep the goofy smile on your face, continue to love hard, and continue to expand that brilliant mind of yours.

I'll continue to protect and love you for as long as I live. Show the world just how special you are. Again, I believe in you!
