Though I did not want to be, I was an only child. I confess to envying my friends who had large families or even just one sibling.
Two or three times a week I get to observe preschool siblings (my grandkids) in action, and I see what I missed! Of course, there is some fighting and arguing, but overall, Jack and Mary Hollis show lots of love. When she says, "My Jackie," referring to her older brother, my heart melts! Having an older brother must be wonderful.
Last week, I had the joy of spending some time with these two brothers pictured below. Their sibling love was obvious from the first picture when Ryan immediately put his arm around his little brother. They happily shared the wagon and played together between taking photos. Brothers have a special connection.
If you are blessed to have a brother or sister, I hope you have treasured that relationship. Maybe you need to reflect on your childhood memories and rekindle the love that perhaps is no longer as easily expressed.
