When I was younger I believed I would one day be older than my older siblings. It never occurred to me that they were aging just as I was aging and would always remain older.
Part of the reason I thought I could out age them was because I spent so much time alone. During most of my school days I felt like an only child. It is only now as an adult that I’m beginning to cherish being apart of a family.
Now there’s nothing better than the three of us eating mom’s food at the same time in the same place, laughing over something dad did or said, or hanging out away from everyone and everything as if time only belongs to us.
It’s true you can’t choose your siblings but they are simply irreplaceable.
