Happy Birthday! I know I don’t tell you this enough but I love you Ben. You’ve always been an extraordinary brother to me. I don’t deserve you, but I’m sure as hell happy I got you anyway.
You have so many great qualities, but luckily for me one of your best traits is forgiveness. I don’t think most people know that about you. I do, however, because despite the below list you still love me.
I’m sorry I made you wear a pink shirt when you got home from your mission.
I’m sorry for constantly trying to get you killed when you were a child.
I’m sorry I made you peanut butter and spicy salsa sandwiches every time I was forced to babysit you.
I’m sorry for swearing in your mission farewell talk.
I’m sorry I told everyone we know you always cry in the movie “The Land Before Time.”
I’m sorry I just told the Internet that you cry in the movie “The Land Before Time.”
I’m sorry I called you Benjaminoballbaby when you were a kid.
I’m sorry I called you Benjaminoball-less when you were a kid.
I’m sorry for calling you Ben-gina when you were a kid…. and last week.
I’m sorry for teaching the twins to call you Uncle Mean.
I’m sorry for teaching the twins, just yesterday, to call you Auntie Uncle Ben.
You’re an incredible person, Ben. I’m so proud to be able to call you my brother. You grew up from the cutest little dimple-faced boy into the amazing man you are now. I love you baby brother.
