Today is National Sibling Day. Nothing expresses the beauty of the sibling relationship like this article by Frank Bruni. He’s one of the most brilliant minds I know, thus why I self-report as Swoon-y For Bruno.
If you have a sibling our are remotely interested in why I am such a fan, read the article.
All I can add is a public expression of gratitude for my sisters, one 14 months older, the other 4 years younger. They keep my ship righted and my circle of life in perspective. They love name unconditionally and only applied conditions when I needed them. It was either conditional love or an intervention, I suppose.
Either way, it’s helped make me who I am today, and it has defined “family” for me in the most meaningful and loving way possible.
