Happy Birthday Dave!
My brother Dave is 40 today!
Dave and I are one year and change apart in age. Its funny as you get older you see the similarities in your personalities instead of the differences.
Growing up, Dave and I were a little different than each other. Dave was the guy that could make friends in a blink of a eye, when I was the one that had maybe one or two people that I would call good friends. When we moved to Minnesota, I was known as "Dave Youngs brother" because he was known by the whole neighborhood in a matter of minutes! :-)
Dave is the kind of guy that would take chances and I was more likely to be cautious and slow to make big leaps. Dave likes to live in the moment and doesnt remember the details of the past like I do. Dave lived life like a young kid should, I tended to try to be a adult.
As we have aged very gracefully and kept our athletic builds :-) I have seen Dave grow as a person and as a brother. We like to go to the movies once a month or so, its a good time to catch up on whats going on. We both share the love and responsibility of being fathers and husbands. I have learned from him to enjoy each day....I hope he has learned some things from me also. I always know that Dave and I will be there for each other. Its a good feeling.
Happy Birthday Bro.
