Brothers and Sisters

Some people spend their entire childhood fussing and fighting with their siblings and wishing they were an only child. Some spend their childhood in perfectly harmony. Well, not perfect, but harmony none the less. There are also those who have no other little person in their daily life to fuss with or to hang out with—poor people. What ever your relationship with your brother or sister is in childhood, for many it changes when they become adults. For some the relationship drastically changes and for others, the good relationship deepens to form a solid bond of friendship. Fortunately, many wake up as adults and wonder why they fussed and fought so much as a child.

All of the sudden they begin looking at their brother or sister as a real human being. Imagine that. They become someone you can talk to, rely on, and trust. After all, who better to trust than a family member? Who knows you better than someone who grew up in the same house as you? This page was written in honor of brothers and sisters everywhere. Hope you enjoy the quotes.

        Hi KoffeeKGs sorry it took a little while to swing over to your site but i had you penciled in for a visit. We were a tight knit unit. My two brothers and my sister attended my buck's night. (Honestly). We still get along fine even though they are all twelve thousand miles away. Nice of you to think of this feel good hub. Cheers.

        ahostagesituation, I think it's wonderful that you are so close to your brother. I agree, family is a wonderful thing. I too, am close to my brother. There is no one that will ever be able to replace him. Thanks for visiting.

        I just picked my brother up from the airport late last night and when my roommate asked him this afternoon, 'did you fly from the East Coast just to see your sister?' He responds, 'She didn't tell you how close we are?' My roommate can barely be in the same room with her brother which is unbelievable to me. That dude cracks me up--stories about being a landlord, his congregation, his violent games of frisbee, and his sports injuries...he is hilarious! No one is funnier. Good family is a very good thing, and no one knows you like your sibling. Unfortunately. :-).

        Lisa, I have three grown daughters who are very close. You are right, it is wonderful to watch them interact. My brother and I were always close growing up. Family is so important. Thanks for dropping in and thanks for your comment.

        Lovely Hub. I have one of each, and as far as our childhood family goes, we're pretty much who we have now. I absolutely love watching my own three, grown, children still seem so close now that they're grown. It's nice to know that they have what my siblings and I have. I guess, maybe, parents never know if it will work out that way when kids are still young. :)

        A great reminder of how important siblings are. You grow up fighting with them and then as you grow older the friendship rather than rivalry kicks in and then that becomes support. That is my experience with my brothers - great quotes.
