Having a sibling is like having a built in best friend. We fight and push each other’s buttons, but my siblings and I have always had each other’s backs no matter what. I can think back to many different over the top fights between my siblings and I, but I can also remember each time we came to one another’s rescue. Regardless if we were standing up to a parent who we felt was punishing the other too harshly or another kid thinking they could bully one of us. I wouldn’t be the same person without all my brothers and sisters teaching, testing and watching me through out this crazy life. Being in the middle I had the best of both worlds. I had the protective older siblings and had to protect my younger siblings as well, all of that taught me a lot and I still stand firm I’m so glad my little brothers didn’t have only me as the older sibling because I failed at that more times than I could count, but that is where our older brother got the job done. Of course I have to get mushy and over share about my late brother, Billy, who clearly is in most of the pictures. the anniversary of it all starts tomorrow. I can’t help but do the count down and relive all those moments. But I will stop myself there and spare y’all 🙂
All that spill is because now I get to watch all my nieces and nephews be blessed like I was, with built in friends. It is amazing seeing my siblings in each child, and seeing the birth order came alive in them as well.
