So.. I just spoke to my brother..one of three times a year we try and catch up. . Birthdays and Christmas, you know how it is..
It was lovely though, one time it was a bit awkward whenever we spoke or met, I was caring for and living with Mum and he was away living, doing his thing, both of us busy raising a family or two.
Now we speak because we don't actually have to but because we are family, because, as Mum once told me. ...we are the only people made the same. .from our Mum and Dad..and somehow that means we should acknowledge the fact even if unspoken.
I know we only say 'I Love You' at Christmas but we know that there is a special love there all year because it is the common history, the common parentage and the common knowledge that time passes and so do those people and with it our memories and our own lives...
Happy Christmas and a good year ahead Ken x
