I've had a lot of time to just sit down and think lately. I posted here about my family always needing me. I think about all we've been through together.

My brother went deaf when he was about 3. He is able to hear now.

My sister found out she had cervical cancer at age 17.

My brother had his little boy join his life when he was 18.

I found a lump in my breast while TTC and had a biopsy done.

My youngest sister has had tumors removed from her ear and finger every couple years since she was 4.

My mom has heart disease and has had 13 heart attacks and 4 strokes since I was 12, so over the last 11 years.

Pregnancies & pregnancy scares. 


My sister having a seizure.

My in-laws being stupid. 

Friends leaving us at such a young age.

And that's just the start of it.

We've been through so much together. We've always been there together, for each other. My brother has been my late night movie buddy when I had nightmares & Skyler was at work. My sisters & I comforted each other through break ups. There hasn't been one friend that I've been able to turn to through everything. They are my rock. I'm close with my mom, we're more like friends than mother & daughter, but its my siblings that I know I can turn to no matter what. We share secrets. We fight. We laugh & cry together. I am so blessed to have such amazing siblings.

How awesome that you have such supportive siblings. I have two brothers, and we get along fine and love each other, but we're definitely not close like that!
