Family Love

Its National Siblings Day I am told. Who makes up all these days anyway? I want to apply for that job! I would be glad to think of something to come up with for each day of the year. The ideas are already swarming. What is something that you think should have a National Day? Think about it and let me know in the comments. 🙂

I was blessed with wonderful siblings and I am so glad to be able to have a strong bond with them! Wouldn’t make it through the tough times in life without them!! Life also would not nearly be as fun or crazy without them!

My brother Nelson was the oldest, he was 10 years older than me, followed by my sister Karen, who is 8 years older, followed by my other sister Sharon, who is 6 years older than me. Yes, i am the youngest, the SURPRISE baby. Was I spoiled? Well of course not!  🙂

We fought as normal siblings do, but we also always had and always will have each others back!

My brother may be gone from us now,  and though he is dearly missed, he will never be gone from our hearts! The impact he had on our lives and the memories we made with him will always stay.

My sisters are always there when my faith needs a boost . We can always count on laughter when we are together, even in the times that it may be mixed with tears.  We may not always agree, but they love me for who I am, in spite of the fact that I may make them roll their eyes at times. They make me roll my eyes too, we keep it even. They are my rock and I would want it no other way.

The love  I have in my heart when I think of them overflows! I am blessed!

  1. I think there should be a National Unicorn Day. In fact, there is, according to this website, and it occurred yesterday, April 9th:
    I can’t believe I missed it, but I was too busy chasing unicorns, to notice.

    I think it’s great you have had supportive siblings that you get along well with. So many siblings fight amongst each other. I too have had supportive siblings, and I too am the youngest. I have three older sisters and one older brother. We grew up in an abusive home, but we were always there for each other, giving each other our moral and logistical support. That’s how we survived. Unfortunately, we now have a bit of a schism between two of my sisters, and I feel sad about that. Family is the foundation of our earliest memories, and treating family bonds as precious and unbreakable helps to keep us stable and sane.


    • First of all how did you of all people not know about National Unicorn Day?? Your unicorn didn’t tell you??? 🙂

      Second, I am so very sorry about you growing up in an abusive home. That is heartbreaking!! I am very happy that you and your siblings bonded and supported each other through! You are so very right about family being the foundation of our earliest memories and are so precious!
      Again I am so sorry that the place where you should have felt protected and loved, your home, was a place where you were hurt.
      I really hope the schism between your 2 sisters can be healed.
      Thanks for sharing from your heart, helps us become even more real to each other.
