Today I talked with my brother who recently underwent surgery. It was cut short by other health issues, that prohibited completion of all the desired procedures. He is younger than me and as a youngster I felt the role of protector as his big sister. He eventually grew taller and larger than I and I think we may have swapped roles.
Now as a adults I am not sure who holds which role. I love him dearly no matter the role in life and pray for his health and recovery. He is my brother dear.
