30 days of thanks: Day 13.
My brother, Tom.
He hasn’t been to the island in twenty years but
I got a surprise box from him this week:
The contents of which I immediately set up
in the place of honor in my kitchen.
My brother is nuts about Scotland.
He goes to the Burning of the Clavie
every year or so.
He’s travelled there with both my mother and older sister
and has a full kilt outfit.
So here’s why I’m so thankful for Tom.
He lives his life with enthusiasm.
He used to bring a cookie monster puppet to the children’s ward
in a hospital just to make kids laugh.
He is not afraid to wear a kilt in public.
And he sends me the fixin’s for afternoon tea.
