I have a half-brother... half.... brother..... weirdo phrase...
he's not half of anything,
... he's a whole brother.
Another way of putting it is that we shared a father.
We also share a sister.
He shares his son with me,,, my only nephew.
I really didn't get to know him at all until we were adults.
I love him.
Today, he was married.
I welcome his bride to our family.
I will pray for them as they become a family.
For all the joys and all the struggles that life in a family entails, I wish them strength for the journey.
