On Sunday I took this picture of my girls...
And it immediately made me think of this picture...
Sarah and Leah are the same age difference as me and my sister (just shy of six years apart). I often wonder if they will be similar to us. Their age difference is the same, but the rest of the family is not the same, so I wonder how that will play a role - and by that I mean, Sarah is not the oldest child (like I was) and she has one child before her and two after her. I think it's very interesting to see how birth order and how many siblings a person has affects how they relate to siblings.
What makes siblings close or not so close? I find that very interesting! As an adult, I know which of my friends are close to their siblings and which ones are not. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with age, so I really can't figure it out. :)
To my sweet sister,
I know we are so very different, but we are also very alike! I love you and I know that even though we've had moments when we've wanted to kill each other, one thing is true: I trust you. I trust you with everything about me. And I've learned over the years that trust is huge. So I hope you remember this when I drive you crazy!
What do you think is the key to closeness among siblings?
