My brother turned 17

My little brother turned 17 without me today. He’s growing older and I’m on the other side of the globe, wishing I could be there to celebrate with him.

He’s the most important person in my life and I would do absolutely anything for him. It’s so incredibly difficult to be so far away from him, especially on a day like this when all I want to do is give him a hug and spend some time with him.

It breaks my heart that I didn’t get to watch him cut his birthday cake and it breaks my heart that I probably won’t be back home to see him turn 18 either.
