I am very fortunate in that I have had the same best friend for my entire life – my brother Jordan. From the time we were very little we played and fought and worked together. We are only 18 months apart in age and Jordan was always only a grade under me so we were very close.
We’ve been so close that many times I take Jordan for granted. I would treat my other friends better and would sometimes not even realize that my most common playmate was Jordan. The same thing continued into adulthood in some ways; when I get frustrated at work I can treat Jordan in ways I would never treat my other work colleagues. Fortunately, Jordan has been patient and has always seemed to understand.
I am continuing to work on my own behaviors and to constantly remind myself to treat Jordan and my family better.
I was Jordan’s best man and he was mine. I am grateful for that.
I am also especially grateful that I get to work with Jordan on building Coalition and for all the adventures we have had so far. I think we have had major accomplishments we both can be very proud of.
