According to my Facebook Newsfeed it is
National Sibling Day.
I really have enjoyed seeing all of your photos.
I grew up an Only Child.
Oh, how I wanted a sister or a brother.
As a little girl, I cried about it to my mother,
and I'm sure her heart was breaking too.
When I was older I learned about her struggle with pregnancy.
She had lost four babies to miscarriage.
Then my sister Twila...
She arrived early and lived for only 24 hours.
My Aunty Vivian held her and told me she was the prettiest baby.
My parents both came from large families.
I enjoyed the the companionship of many cousins.
* Emotional Support
I always knew that if we were blessed to be parents,
we would want to have more than one baby.
My heart overflows with happiness
that these two share that Special Sister Bond.
Hug your siblings tight.
