Today, May 2nd, is “Brothers and Sisters Day”.
I want to share mine with you today. How I love them!
This is my baby brother, Denny!
Denny was my playmate and my companion when we were young children. We played together for hours. I loved paper dolls and he would let me place them in his toy cars and he would drive them all around the bedroom for me.
Always so sweet and so good.
Denny now lives in New York City, and years go by when we do not see each other.
I am very sad for that.
My older sister Yvonne!
Yvonne loved to be out playing ball with all the boys! We were quite opposites in the early years, I was the “prissy” one as you can see above. I so loved purses.
Were those our “designer” jeans?
When looking for photos of us together, in almost every photo Yvonne is holding my hand. She does that now! She is my best friend in my older life. Now that our mother has passed, Yvonne is the one I call when life is not so good.
She has so many friends, because she is loyal and loving to everyone.
If you have a brother or sister, tell them you love them today, forget the petty things of the past. Forgive and forget, renew your relationship with them.
Life really is too short!
Yvonne and Denny, I love you both so much!
To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
