Flashback Friday – Brothers

14 10 2011

I have posted the first in a series of reflections on sisterhood. But I know that brothers, as well as sisters, can share strong connections. And the concept of brotherhood is a powerful one throughout our cultural history. So, today, I am celebrating a special brother relationship: that of my nephews, Ben and Tim Finnegan. This photo was shot one afternoon in the 1990s, in my parent’s house. Ben and Tim are both married men now. Tim, and his wife Nikki, are the proud parents of Emma Joy, who is one. And just this week, we learned that the little one Ben and his wife Elsa are expecting is also a girl – Adaline Bell.

These young men were wonderful as children, and remarkable as adults. I look forward to the joy of seeing them nurture and grow their own families.

They were pretty cute, weren’t they? And they still are! And the most remarkable thing is that though they are so different, they love and enjoy each other. Nothing blesses parents like their children loving each other! But then, I am likely biased. 🙂
