A Bond That Goes Far Beyond Brotherhood

Here is a guest piece written by my nephew for Autism Awareness and National Siblings Day about his oldest brother.  It’s filled with love and appreciation of the beauty each one of us holds and has to share with the other!

Dalton & Brody

brodyman_Happy #NationalSiblingDay and #AutismAwareness Month from the big bro and I! Can’t thank this dude enough for all the love and support he has given me throughout the years. There is a quote that reads “autists are the ultimate square pegs, and the problem with pounding a square peg into a round hole is not that the hammering is hard work. It’s that you’re destroying the peg.” With that having been said I just want to say I wouldn’t change a thing about this man. Never. So as the month of April continues on I genuinely hope that all people take some time to make themselves aware of what autism really is and what it entails. After all, square pegs don’t fit into round holes for a reason… Embrace it. Love it. Be thankful for it. The difference is what makes them unique. For example, over the years I have watched Dalton befriend numerous people of an assortment of backgrounds due to his genuinely positive outlook on everyday life. He loves and takes joy from the little things like meeting new people, getting to watch trains pass by, and petting dogs. I admire that, and if we all lived our lives that way the world as we know it would be a much happier place. Therefore, I am proud to say I ❤️ someone with autism. ? 6/4/93

Growing up through the 1960's and 70's, my generation experienced great change and challenge. With 2 older brothers & 3 younger sisters I found peace in connecting with nature, in art and music and in exercising my imagination. I try to believe the best in humanity and strive to love and share the gifts I've been given in my little part of the world. My siblings and kids might say I'm a little bit Crazy and being a unique combination of analytic and creative can argue with myself and have fun at the same time! My work has taken me from serving other in non-profits, to fund development, sales and marketing and back "home" again to sharing with others. With a penchant for the unique and beautiful in vintage pieces, I love to collect and share with others through both eBay & Etsy. I'm an Entrepreneur who loves learning and exploring the world around me; as well as a Mom, Grandma, sibling and daughter. My hope in life is that I can make a positive difference in the life of those around me! Cheers!
