Oh, what a week

I know, I know, I haven't blogged since.. when was it? Tuesday? Monday?! But
I had good reason---

-- news of the week----

My little (yes, you're still my little even though you're both nearly a foot
taller than me!) brothers were in a car accident.

But they're okay, praise God!

From what I heard, Brandon and Tyler were headed to a soccer match near
downtown Nashville when the exit came up unexpectedly. They tried to catch
it, didn't realize that the road curved instead of going straight, were
going WAY to fast, and BAM! Head-first into a sheer rock face.

yeah. Ow is right!

I'll post the pictures when I get to my computer at lunch, but seriously...
looking at that twisted hunk of what used to be a hood... wow... I'm so
thankful they were wearing their seatbelts.

All they really walked away with was some cuts and bruises. That, and they
both were really shook up-- Brandon not wanting to drive for a while and
Tyler thinking that it was cool they had a near-death experience. Ah, I love
my bros.

I can't image what I would do if I lost them.

Man. I start to tear up just thinking about it.

I know that my brothers and I have fought in the past, come on, we're
siblings.. but they've grown and matured so much this last year, and since
I've gotten married and especially since I've moved away.... they've become
more like friends than brothers. They still aggravate from time to time, but
now I really ENJOY spending time with them. Looking at them now, looking at
how they've grown, and who they have become..... I'm proud of Brandon and
Tyler. While we might refer to them as "the boys" now and then out of sheer
convinence, they are neither boys, nor are they one entitiy, you know "the
twins".... they are each unique and individual, special (as corney as it
sounds) in their own special way.

Really.. Brandon.. Tyler.. I love ya'll.

Don't die.

Don't get in another accident.

Or I'm going to have to come down there and kill you myself!
