The Apple Of His Eye

He loves you.

You are his big brother.

Do you see the way he looks at you?

The looks on his face when you invite him to play with you.

I do!

His face lights up.

You bring out a special gleam in his eye.

A look reserved for when he is most happy.

When you hug him or offer him a kiss he can hardly contain his joy.

As a big brother you have a lot to teach him.

You have already taught him so much.

You learn things too.

Patience, for instance, as you don’t always like to be copied, even if it is out of love.

He thinks the world of you and I know you love him too.

It has been amazing to watch you two merge into a little team.

The other day, you introduced to someone in your normal way…

“Hi, I am Noah and I am the sheriff!”

Collin usually says, “I’m a sheriff too!”.

Not this time.

Nope, this time he simply said,

“I am HIS brother.”

You see, to him, YOU are who he wants to be.

You are his hero.

For what it’s worth I think he has a pretty great hero!
