I have been given many gifts I am extremely thankful for and my siblings are no exceptions. I am told by my dad that as a child I would pray, "God will you give me a sister, brother, another sister, another brother, another sister, and another brother..." My dad said at times he would have to stop me and say, "Okay that's enough." I am now 28 years old and have not one, but five younger siblings. I am the oldest of six! I waited many years and each sibling is special to my heart. I thought of three of them as my babies, because they are much younger than me and I often was given the privilege of babysitting. I changed diapers and wiped away tears from their eyes when they were babies. Now that they are grown I still wish I could wipe away their hurts, but I know I cannot.
I still remember how they used to look up to me. I thought each of them were mine and they do continue to hold such a special place in my heart. I cannot imagine life without them.
Each of them have surpassed me in height, but I continue to be the "big" sister and they are my babies
You each took my breath away the day you were born. I will never be able to describe the love I have for you all.
I love my sisters
This was my wedding day and I was told that it was my day to relax, but the way I relaxed was to take care of my sisters.
Baby brother, when did you grow up? You were always my sweet baby boy. I packed you around as if you were my child....
...and then you grew taller than me. I could no longer pack you around, but I love you just the same!
Morgan and Tyler I love you very much. You came into my life when I was a selfish teenager and I do wish I would have taken more time for you two. I am thankful for the time we have now. I am thankful for each of you.
I thank You for sisters and brothers. As a child I prayed for many and that is what you granted. Each of them are special to me. I thank You for your grace and mercy.
