Today my little brother @804.ace
was sworn into the Navy, and began the first day of the rest of his life. While my heart weighs heavy with sadness, I can't stop thinking about the amazing opportunities that will be coming his way. When you're the oldest child in a family raised by a single mom, you tend to take on the roles of a parent yourself, and seeing him grow into an amazing young man has been such a great experience. It's so weird how one moment we can be fighting like cats & dogs, and the next I don't know how life will adjust without him present. I keep trying to tell myself that he's going to be well taken care of and is in the hands of great people who will protect him. Please keep my entire family in your thoughts and prayers while we attempt to get readjusted to real life again, and please pray for my brother's success & protection. I love you Jaronny. I'll hold down the fort while you're gone, and I can't wait until I get to see you again.
