My Sibs

"No one knows better than a sister how we grew up,
and who our friends, teachers and favorite toys were.
No one knows us better than she."
Dale V. Atkins

"A brother or sister is a little bit of childhood
that can never be lost."
Marion C. Garretty

"Siblings never quite forgive each other for what happened
when they were five."
Pam Brown

"To the outside world we all grow old..."

"But not to brothers and sisters.
We know each other as we always were..."

"We know each other's hearts.
We share private family jokes,
And remember old feuds and secrets..."

"We live outside the touch of time."
Clara Ortega

Happy Birthdays to my siblings from your big sis.
(T, I need a picture of us grown up!)

Great quotes. That was really sweet.

Love the pictures you used. And it's true...when me and my siblings get together, we are always left "remembering". It's great.

I see photos like yours with siblings who seem to love each other and are close and it's so hard for me to relate to that. Most of my life, my brothers and I were strangers growing up in the same house together. We ALWAYS went our separate ways...always. And now, in my mid-50s, the only one I'm close to is my baby brother who's 6 years younger than me. My oldest brother and I are virtual strangers, tho we do speak on the phone maybe once a year. My brother nearest to me in age estranged himself from our entire family 16 years ago and wouldn't even respond when our father was dying. Hold tight to what you have, are truly, truly blessed.
