Late Again

This is the third year in a row I’ve been a day late in recognizing my siblings for International Siblings Day.   I love my siblings and they greatly enrich my life.  I know just how lucky I am to have their support and friendship.  At my mother’s funeral the four of us gave a speech together to share the story of our Mom’s life. At the end we promised to do our best to maintain the strong family ties Mom had worked so hard to nurture.  I think we’re doing pretty well so far.

I Love My Siblings

I missed International Siblings Day yesterday but didn’t want to miss the chance to say how much I love and appreciate my sister and brothers. family photo 60'sWe were fortunate to be raised by parents who role-modeled the importance of maintaining healthy relationships with brothers and sisters. Mom and Dad made it a priority to foster caring connections with their own siblings. 

I feel very lucky to have siblings who are so supportive and place such importance on close family relationships.

One Day Late

I missed international siblings’ day yesterday but still want to say how much I love and appreciate my three siblings. I  know that I can absolutely count on any one of them at any time. I enjoy being with my sister and brothers and I’m glad that I can see them so often now that we are living in Winnipeg.marylou childhood0007
