Yesterday I experienced a first and I was floored by it. I stopped by my aunt and uncle’s place in Tulsa, OK for the weekend. I happened to be within a couple hours of them on a business trip so it only made sense since they are usually twelve hours from me. Upon walking into their house I noticed that they had company over and that they were all eating. My uncle gets up from the table, puts his arm around me, and tells everyone, “This is my brothers oldest son, whom I am very proud of!” I was honestly and openly taken aback. Very few people have ever said anything remotely like that to me or about me, but I know that this is the first time that I’ve ever been introduced in such a fashion. It meant so much and I never saw it coming.
