There are so many people who come into our lives for various reasons. Some are there to challenge us, some to use us for their own purposes, and then some come into our lives to just give us a hand. The angels were working overtime when they made sure one of the people in my life would be Scott - my best friend and the older brother I never had. Growing up without a male figure, I often felt an indescribable emptiness when I saw other boys play sports with their dads, or go camping, or simply do guy stuff. As the years went by, my need for a male figure became ever-present in me. Scott taught me how to play sports, how to tie a necktie, how to build a tent, and a bunch of other things I always wanted to learn. Most importantly, he taught me that love is very powerful and his brotherly love made me a better young man. My next big challenge is coming up with a way to show my appreciation for the blessing of having Scott in my life — the coolest big brother anyone could ever have and my hero!
