Some Things Never Change

Brothers and Sisters….

I am remembering the day we tied them together at the ankle for awhile.  I had read it in a parenting book.  Jim and I could not help but laugh as they had to figure out how to get along.  Normally they did but that day long ago…we parents had had enough! Their younger brother escaped this particular event.  He is 4 years younger and didn’t qualify as a preteen irritant yet.

The bond between this brother and sister is strong.

Can you tell?

Only I can mess with one of us, and if you try, you will have me to deal with.  If you have kids and you have not seen this in action, someday your heart will thrill with the protective love bond they form.  The brother and sister who were there for each other during college and for a few years after while mom and dad traipsed the globe with their work. Loyalty does not always come easily. The trust can be broken but healed after time. But the love and wanting the best for each one in our family continues. It is not a blind trust but one that is dependable. Being there for each other is proven even though there have been some rough spots between the siblings.

I know I can count on them for their younger sisters, always!

As their mom, I can only hope the loyalty and being able to trust that each one will be there for them through the years as they form new family bonds through marriage and with children.

I’m joining Tuesdays Unwrapped today.

I am a woman who loves Jesus who loved me first. Prone to wander and distraction is common for me as I seek to reflect Him in my daily life. I am wife, mom, and grandma who has lived on 3 continents in 26+ apartments, townhouses, military housing, suburbs and now a 200 plus year old farm house. Preparing and hosting meals for the hundreds who have passsed through our home has been a joy and blessing to our family as we listened and shared over meals, coffee, light nights and Bible studies. A rich life! I have reached the age to feel qualifies to be an ”older woman” (as in Titus) even though I feel far from old and have plenty of room to grow each and everyday. And my joy is to teach Bible studies and help train other women to lead well.
