I got my first letter from my brother!!

If you are new to my blog, let me fill you in. My brother left for Marine Boot Camp on January 10th. I have sent him several letters, two of which you can read here and here. To read about how I felt about my brother's departure click here, and click here to read about the day he left.

I did! I got my first letter from my brother, and I was so excited! The letter made me both laugh and cry. I laughed, because I could hear his sense of humor in the words (and because I was just so darn excited to get a letter), and I cried because it really means something when your brother says he loves you. It's not that I ever doubted the fact that he loved me, it's just nice to see it in writing. Anyway, without further is the letter....

Dear Sister,
This letter will not be neat at all because I have to write fast and this pen sucks. But anyways I'm glad I finally get to hear from you. I miss you and Bree...and Paul a lil' bit. This crap sucks, well not really. I just miss home a lot. [some text exempt] Speaking of Bree being sick, I'm sick also. I have no voice and a bad sinus infection. Times are hard, but I'm pressing on. I gotta cut this short cuz I gotta write Sam and the Parents back. Write me back. It's amazing how letters help a person out. I love you Sister, tell Bree I love her and tell Paul to quit playing my Xbox.

Bye, I love you.

Your Bro Urt

I know how relieved and overjoyed you all must have been to get his letter! I see he has tried to keep him humor in tact. I am certain it is difficult under such circumstances. I know your letters will help keep him grounded and feel in touch with his humanity. YAY!!!
