My Beautiful Grizzly Brother

Shocked. Awed. Flabbergasted.

It must be a joke. Or a mistake.

Those are the first feelings and thoughts that crossed my mind this morning when I found out Pioneer Woman chose my photograph of my sweet brother's grizzled face for Group 3 of her Brothers Photography Assignment.

But I shushed myself and just enjoyed the moment.

It's been nice. Very nice.

Thanks for seeing something in my photo, Pioneer Woman.

Thanks for letting me know it was chosen, Jillsy.

Thank you for my camera, Tom.

Thank you for having such a wonderful, grizzly, character-filled face, Donnie...

And for being such a sweet big brother.

I love you!

Happy birthday this Sunday!
