Siblings

I have been giving a lot of thought to my family...mostly my siblings. and I feel very grateful and blessed. I am the oldest child of 3 brothers and one sister. Our brother, Bruce passed away in 2005. I have such a great relationship with each of them. My sister and I talk on the phone at least once a day, and my brothers and I have weekly conversations. Though none of them live close to me, they are all close in my heart.
I know if I ever needed anything they would be there for me, even if it wasn't physically. I am grateful for that!
My children are growing up and are developing that close relationship with each other. I hope and pray they will be as lucky as I have been.

You are the bestest sister EVAH!

You forgot to mention that those daily phone calls can sometimes last a few hours...no wonder I don't like to talk to anyone else on the phone!

You are so very lucky to have such a great family and to be so close to them. I'm sure your children have learned so much from you!

Have a great weekend!

What great relationships. I am lucky to talk to my brothers every couple of months. One brother not much at all...

Oh my gosh, your boys look like twins!! Siblings are so precious. I'm sorry you lost one a few years ago. That would be so hard. Look how tall your brothers are!!

How wonderful to hear about your great relationship with your siblings. People aren't as close these days as they used to be. Maybe it's because everyone is so busy all the time and don't make family a priority. You my friend are a beautiful example to others.
