Brother Brother, #1040


I had so many good moments yesterday, but without a doubt, the absolute highlight of my day (maybe even of my week or month) was when I was sitting at my desk at work, and all of a sudden, my brother’s enormous grin popped up from around the corner.

My brother lives in Los Angeles, and I haven’t seen him in at least half of a year.  We are both so busy in our lives, and it prevents us from talking regularly and seeing each other often.  The love is all there though, and getting that hug from him was the best thing in the world.

He came on a last minute decision to take my Dad out to lunch for his birthday.  After lunch, they swung by my work to surprise me.  I only got 5 minutes with my brother.  What a tease, but it was the most meaningful 5 minutes I’ve had in a long time.  I’ll take and cherish every second I can get.

I miss my brother – a lot.  It’s hard not living in the same city.  So, my song of the day is for him.  I chose the song “Brother Brother.”  I think it was written by the Isely Brothers, but I like Carole King’s version.  Enjoy it, and I urge you all today…go hug your brothers.  They’re the best!



About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
