24 May is Brother’s Day, a day to celebrate and honour the brothers in our lives. The day was founded by C Daniel Rhodes of Alabama in the USA.
Whether you have one brother, or many, they hold a special place in your heart. Some might not have a brother, but they usually have someone in their life who is like a brother to them, perhaps a best friend (often known as a ‘brother from another mother’), a brother-in-law or a cousin.
They are the men in our lives we count on, even if we do not talk, or spend time together, very often. We share memories and challenges that often start with the phrase, “Watch this!”, but more often than not, end in a few stitches. They are the ones who, while minding their own business, are always prepared to step in when necessary, because that is what brothers do.
Of course, they have been known to put frogs on your head or gum in your hair and even may have once been too cool to associate with you, but, no matter what, they will always be your brothers.
Brothers come in many shapes and sizes, and so do their relationships. Whatever yours is, take the time to celebrate your brother on Brother’s Day. Make a plan to spend some time with your brother(s) and share some stories and memories. Find a way to allow new brother siblings to spend some fun, enjoyable time together and bond.
Use #Brother’sDay to post on social media.
