A Familly Bond to be Cherished

We enjoyed a wonderful Family Day yesterday. A gathering was hosted by our daughter with all but one of our kids able to make it. The afternoon was spent eating, chatting and watching the entertainment — our 18-month-old granddaughter.

I love seeing my children together, love listening to them talk and tease, and most important, laugh.  It is one of my blessings that the four of them get along so well. The interaction is always convivial and for their mother a joy to witness.

It makes me sad when I hear of siblings not getting along. Certainly there have been moments with mine, but I really don't ever remember a time when words have been harsh enough to be unforgivable. This family relationship is a special bond, one to be cherished. When others let you down, while friends come and go, where relationships fade or end, the ones who will be there for you, who will have your back are your brothers and sisters. They long ago accepted your foibles and love you in spite of them.

We celebrate that bond with these wonderful photos of siblings:
