A Sister and Brother


No one ever had to ask
you to love each other. Ever.

Or show you how. When I
think about you two, the word
I come up with is destiny.

Your friendship was not born of
fine parenting. It was not taught.
It's what you two made it
as you played and giggled... as
you traveled, kept secrets and seasoned
your conversations with movie and TV
quotes. You shared your toys, and,
as you grew, you shared friends.

Us parents? We hope our kids
will do things without being asked.
Well, no parent's ever asked you
two to love each other. Ever!

That's how I feel about my own two. Jonah loved her right from the start and it has continued ever since, although there is always sibling squabbling.

Sibling friendship is the best there is. You know they are looking out for one another. A beautiful thing. :)
