“A brother is a friend God gave you; a friend is a brother your heart chose for you.” -Proverb
Siblings are a wonderful thing...I saw this picture on Pinterest recently, and I immediately had a rush of emotion sweep over me. Why? I immediately thought of my one and only sibling...my younger brother.
I was always the "older" sister. As the "older" sibling, I am protective of my younger brother...but, he is protective of his sister as well. We were 5 1/2 years apart, and growing up we were close...but, lets face it...during the teenage years he was hitting the years where it was "fun" to tease and "bother" his older sister. There were some ahem "great times" during those years (sarcastically)!!!
However, those "awkward" years passed...and, there is no prouder sister out there than this gal right here!!!
Siblings play an important role in helping determine both who we are and who we become...they help us develop our self esteem and self worth.

Brotherly (and sisterly) love really is a special gift...and, I am glad that I am able to experience it in this life.
