To My Older Brothers, I Thank You

Never thought I'd be saying half of this, but hey it can't be too late to say sorry.

To My Older Brothers, I Thank You

Being the only girl out of four boys growing up obviously can take a toll on a girl, and having 2 older brothers... sheesh, I didn't think I would make it. But looking back now as I sit in my apartment at school I wouldn't want it any other way.

My brothers bullied me in every way possible, from making fun of how I dressed, or how my hair looked, or just pushing me down to make me cry for a little you name it. I mean that's what they're there for right? Yeah, try telling 7 year old me that or even 15 year old me. My mom would always say "You're going to miss them messing with you all the time one day." As I rolled my eyes and begged for them to move out, now I'm in my Sophomore year of college and they're the single thing I miss most from being home. Brothers have a funny way of showing their love, hey all boys do.

Thank you for making me feel safe at all costs no matter the situation, it didn't matter who it was if someone messed with me they messed with them. Thank you for your abundant support in everything I've done (including the things you didn't approve of) every early game, late game whatever it was I knew to count on you guys to be there. Thank you for showing me what I deserve, and not letting me settle for less. My standard in guys are so high because of you, you made me see that I deserve nothing but the best at all times. Thank you for making me extremely competitive, you guys taught me to never give up on my dreams no matter what it was, always strive to be the best in everything. Thank you for making me the amazing athlete I am today, you were always brutally honest, even when not asked... but I needed that. You pushed me until I made my goal. Finally, thank you for being you and helping me become the girl I am today. I couldn't have picked a better set of guys to be my brothers, I take pride in being the sister of guys who I think the world of. You will forever be the top 4 most important people in my life.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
