Welcome to Why We Gift Wednesday! Each week, we celebrate one of the thousands of reasons that we truly love giving. Whether it’s honoring the relationships that we have, feeling grateful for an occasion or a special time of year, or relishing life’s simple joys, Why We Gift Wednesday is all about giving and generosity – the expression of appreciation for life’s many happy moments.
Today, May 24 is National Brother Day, so this Why We Gift Wednesday goes out to all our brothers, big or little! If you were lucky enough to grow up with a brother in your set of siblings, then you got to experience that special bond that only happens when a brother (younger or older) is thrown into the mix. Of course, they’ve been known to put gum in your hair, over-salt your food when you weren’t looking, or break your favorite dolls. They may have been too cool for you once, too. But having a brother meant that you could always count on them to be there for you, too – whether it was to protect you against bullies or unwanted attention, give you advice and provide encouragement that you carry with you through the rest of your life.
Brothers come in many shapes and sizes, and so do their relationships. Whether we have one or many, our brothers hold a special place in our hearts. Even if for those who don’t have brothers, someone in their life is usually like a brother to them. Brothers from other mothers are found in a best friend, a brother-in-law or a cousin. Whoever your “brother” is to you, take the time to celebrate your brother on Brother’s Day!
