JUDE

IMG_1013   Jude, Barris, and I after a run in the neighborhood.

 

So many of you have commented on Sophia’s blog last week that I immediately started formulating a blog to highlight my brothers role in my life.  Jude and I are just 2 years apart but I feel that we have a bond much like that of twins.  Jude is dwelling in a open world where imagination runs free and friendship follows him like a dog follows his master.  Dreaming daily is his past time but all  his dreams seem to formulate before our eyes. He still acts surprised but I no longer get excited by the surprise as I already know the power of his dreams.  I only dream eyes to the future because he inspires me to try it.  Me, I am like him, I just stopped dreaming years ago.  Only this past year I have started seeing myself happy in this world.  My story is changing, my song is not sung yet, as I am seeing my imagination live and my dreams formulate as Jude’s does.  Jude is great energy to have around when things seem bleak.  Fear is not his friend.  He is hopeful, lovable and sweet.  I am grateful just to call him my brother. He makes me feel as if he needs me, even though I know he really doesn’t.

 

 

I know my personal experience made him more serious, but I know he is a kid at heart through and through.   I love his obsession with Star Wars and his vast knowledge of the animal kingdom.  Jude is strong, confident and kind, all the things I admire.  Everyday he takes a moment to make sure I am not feeling down.  My soul yearns for him to be proud of me as I am of him.  I just do my best and that is good enough for him.  Jude is the man!

Love,

  1. Bravo!! Jude is definitely your right-hand man in life. We’ve seen this ever since you both were tiny. Isn’t it great to have a brother and sister on whom you can rely, with whom you can have a great time and be friends all at the same time? It is clear you are happy to have them both. And we are glad to have you all, too! Love you. ❤️😘😍

  3. Isaac, I’m working on that with my own brothers now, to get that kind of a relationship, and that’s 48 years in the making. I sure am glad you see your brother that way. You’re blessed for sure. Keep it up.

  9. Just catching up on reading your blog posts, honey. Isn’t Jehovah so kind, that he originated the family arrangement? We can have our friends living right in the same house, as we all grow up together! You have got a real friend in your brother Jude. The kindness that you show to each other never goes unnoticed by our Heavenly Father, and it never goes unnoticed by US, either! 💕
