I have always looked up to my older brother.
He always seemed to know where he was going and what he was doing.
Although I have several brothers, he is the one I looked up to. I will ask him for his opinion before I talk to my parents. He is younger than them and he knows what I am going through. After he graduated from college, he went right to work at this big company and he still works there. He married a woman who liked showing he was the best. I had to agree with her, but it wasn’t because of what he represents. It isn’t the big house he now owns, or how he relates to his family and or friends. It is the man he has become. His wife keeps telling me what a big house she has. She invited me over to see and experience the radiant heated flooring they had installed. I loved the heating and I knew that if I had my own home, I would have radiant heated flooring installed. I sat down on the floor, relishing the warmth that radiated from the floor, to play with my niece. I was telling my sister-in-law about what a great guy she had married. Surprisingly, she nodded and agreed. I was the only girl in our family, and I felt I had to defend him. She told me that when she first mentioned radiant heated flooring, he looked at their daughter. He said he didn’t want her stepping on icy tiles in the middle of winter, so he thought it was a great idea. I think my sister-in-law bonded over radiant heating.
