For all of us who were not born as a single child, we have all been through the trial times of sibling rivalry. This includes pulling of hair, pushing, yelling, and of course the tattle-telling. We love our siblings, however sometimes we can’t help but feel our lives would be a little bit easier without the constant fighting over the bathroom or front seat of the car.
It isn’t until we grow older and wiser that we have a better appreciation for our brothers and sisters. They taught us to stick up for ourselves. They helped us to grow stronger. They even teach us how to raise our own children.
Think back to all the silly things you fought over. Now recall all the times that brought you together, such as eating ice cream cones together! We can push our siblings away as much as we can, but the truth is, we are family, and families are who shape us into who we are as adults.
So when you get a chance, even if they aren’t close by, let your sisters and/or brothers know that you appreciate them (despite who always had possession over the remote control).
What do you appreciate most about your siblings?
