Happy Birthday, Jason. R.I.P.

Many people don’t know this, but I do have an older brother. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to meet him, as he died two months after he was born. Still, I always acknowledge his birthday, because while God may have taken him home a lot sooner than anyone anticipated, my mother was blessed with two miracles in me and my younger brother. I say miracles since shortly after Jason’s death, my mother was told that the likelihood of her bearing anymore children was incredibly slim. Life can be complicated, believe me, I know. But, be grateful that you have one. Jason, I’m sure you’re in a better place, and while you were never afforded the opportunity to lead a full life, we still celebrate the short time you were here. Happy Birthday.
