Day 17: Today I'm grateful for my brother Pete, who lives in Reno, Nevada. He is one of the twins that were born last in the family and such a sweetie. Both of them are, but I'm saving Paul for another day. Pete is so thoughtful, kind and loving that he makes you feel all warm inside. I practically raised the twins, so he feels like he's mine. He's an artist that rocks. He paints, draws and papercuts. He also did all of the artwork for a childrens story that I wrote years ago for my son. He's very special to me and I am to him too. We're very close. This icon is one of his papercuttings. If you would like to see more of his work, you can find it here: http://www.squidge.org/peja/phpmotion/view-album/5/pete's-artwork. He has some wonderful pieces.
