After spending a fun weekend with our 5 children, their spouses, and their children, I become reflective... I always knew I'd love my children...but what I really enjoy is watching them love each other:)
It is inevitable, someday I won't be here and my wish for them is to stay close to their siblings; as brothers and sisters offer an irreplaceable perspective. In one another, they can remember where they have been and who they are.
As years go by and life becomes hectic and busy with families of their own, I hope they continue to pick up the phone and call each other on their birthdays, get together to share what is happening in their lives and reminisce about the days when they were young and the only family they knew was each other:)
