In my family, sometimes there's just an understanding of how much we care about each other. There aren't always words exchanged or sappy notes...but you just know.
Even though there's an unexplainable comfort in just knowing, it's still nice to have a little proof sometimes.
I was being sort of overly pursued by a guy at a bar and ended up separated from my brother and a friend. After the evening was over and my friend and I were chatting over Thai food at 4am, she explained how heated my brother was about this guy and how concerned he was for my safety.
Yes, I'm a big girl. But I'll never turn down a protective brother looking out for me.
