Siblings and Birthdays

This year my brother and cousin celebrate a milestone birthday (60th) and as the prompt at GBE2 is Siblings I thought I would write about them.


To my brother

Great achievements all your life
A great role model for my children
Calm and collected during strife
When you speak we listen


To my cousin

You dedicate your life to help the needy
Educating children who cannot afford
Always happy to lend a hand readily
My faith in humanity you restored


My cousin runs a school for hearing impaired children from low socio economic backgrounds that provides them with free education. I have entered a writing challenge and if I win, I will donate the prize to her school.

Please visit my post at http://1hw.in/project100-a65-umwelt-by-suzy-q/

Your visit and comments may help me win and thereby help these children that otherwise would not have the means to have an education. A little goes a long way.

My sincere thanks to all.

And Happy Birthday A and B. All good wishes for the year ahead.
