Our Littles & Bigs
Little Brother Joey writes to his Big Brother Bill:
It is amazing how you changed my life in so many ways. I have a male friend that I can count on at all times, someone I can talk to "man-to-man". You love the same things I do, which is NASCAR racing, baseball, basketball and bowling. I also really appreciate all the times you helped coach my sports. It is just awesome!
Even though we do have a lot in common, there are some things we don´t. For instance, you don´t like rollercoasters,which I really love them. That would be great if I could get you on one with me one day, but it is OK if you can´t. We also like different football teams, you like the Cowboys, and I like the Eagles.
You make me a more confident person, and you have shown me so much in life. I have experienced things that I never thought with you. Your family also welcomes me with open arms, and I have another family I can count on.
I just want to say Thank You for all the wonderful things we have together and everything you did for me. I may not say it much, but I really do appreciate everything, and don´t ever think I do not. Not a day goes by that I don´t think how lucky I am to have you. Thank you, Love you.
Thank you for all that you do for me. Also Thank you for all the places you take me and the time you spend with me.
You are considerate, helping, caring and a lovely person. You give me the help I need to complete my day. You make me feel like I´m a part of your family.
I wanted to Thank you for the love that you and your family share with me. And I give all that love back to you. You are the best thng ever and I am the luckiest person to have you in my life. I wish nothing, but to be with you.
Thank you also for bringing me to your job. I had so so so much fun. I would do it again anytime!!

Through receiving a recent Big Brothers Big Sisters flyer in the mail, I was reminded that this March marks 5 years that Cheryl and I have been matched! I cannot believe how fast the time has gone by. Over those 5 years I have watched a shy 9-year-old child blossom into a beautiful, more confident 13-year-old. Some things we enjoy doing together include going to the movies, bowling, arcade, and out for ice cream. We laugh together and have a lot of fun when we meet up. I enjoy her company and the conversations we share. I was so proud of Cheryl when she excitedly called me to tell me how well she did on her most recent report card. In past years I have learned that school didn´t come easy for Cheryl. With a lot of hard work and the confidence to make the changes for academic excellence, Cheryl has been succeeding. I want nothing but the best for Cheryl, and I hope that she continues to try hard for ultimate success. An anonymous quote reads, "Friends are the most imporant ingredient in this recipe of life." Cheryl continues to be a special part of my life, and I hope our friendship continue to grow as I continue to be her "Big."
