There are some things that you wouldn’t just walk up and say to people, and I think sometimes you don’t know how to express your emotions without it all being too much. If anyone has Brother’s like mine, they would know that you can’t just walk up and give your Brother the biggest hug whilst telling them how much they mean to you.. my two would probably just push me off and tell me to get lost, or say “I know”.
I don’t even know why I feel the need to write this, but one day something might happen and this will be there if they need it/I want them to see it.
I remember when I was younger, I had said a few times that I always wanted a sister. As I got older I realised that I didn’t need that at all, and started to be happy that I was the only girl. My Brothers from word go were amazing, not that I remember but they apparently used to argue over who got to cuddle me, feed me, put me to bed, help change my nappy.. how good is that? Your Brothers love you so much when you aren’t even 1 year old yet.
Don’t get me wrong, we all have arguments, but I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve had a major argument with either of my Brothers. They are the most caring, sarcastic, loving Brothers a girl could ask for. They are protective of me, but not annoying. They spend time with me, but can tell me when they’re sick of me. We can all holiday together, without biting each others heads off (except when I get bossy and try to plan things, Sorry Rhett).
And now, at ages 25/28/32 we all work in our Family business and are working towards taking it over from our Parents and continuing the success it’s had for 35 years. Not many siblings could do that, and I think we’re blessed that it works for us and that we all get along so well. I couldn’t believe not having the relationships I have with my Brothers, because not only are they Family, they’re also my Best friends.
Am I lucky or what?!?
