what a great quote by desmond tutu which i feel to be completely true.   i know i 've written before about sibling love and how much i love watching our children together.. loving each other, playing, and taking care of one another (and yes, even fighting with each other)   i grew up with 1 older brother and 2 younger sisters.   my brother and i were closest in age and i probably share the most memories with him during my childhood. sure there were times of bickering (my mom tells us how we used to have to go sit in bathroom together until we could work out our problems), but most of my memories are so special. we would play on our big wheels, play wiffle ball, around the world with basketball....then as we got older he'd drive us to school....and then i married one of his childhood best friends.   of course i also have memories with my sisters but i will say our relationships developed more as  we grew older, as they are 5 and 10 years younger than me.   but really no one knows you like your family. we are just blessed truly to all be close and share what we do.  and now it is so sweet to see our children becoming close--a new generation of memories being made.  today, i just want to say how grateful i am for each of my siblings...and to now be able to experience watching my own children share this unique bond with each other is priceless!
