Here are a few pictures of me and my siblings. You know them as Auntie Shar Shar, Auntie J, and Uncle Richie. They are hands down my absolute favorite people in the world. I hate that they all live within a few minutes of each other, and I live what seems like a world away. I'm the oldest, followed by Sharon who is 14 months younger than me. Growing up she was my best friend, best enemy, and partner in crime. Then, seven years later Janna came along. We spoiled her, but she never ever got in to trouble. Uncle Richie is 10 years younger than me, and I was his second mom. I told him what to do, I would brainwash him with Cubs and Bears trivia, and he had me wrapped around his little finger. Now, the four of us are the best of friends. We love each other, we confide in one another, and we pray for each other.
I think there is only going to be two of you in our family, but I hope you are as close as me and my siblings are. We talk all time, we support each other 100 %. I pray that you see your brother as an asset to your life, and not an adversary. As iron sharpens iron I pray that you would do that for each other. See the other as God's gift to your life, just as I view my siblings.
