My Sister-In-Law passed this recap of a texting conversation she had with my Brother when she first learned I have a blog.
My Sister in law to me: Just texted (my Brothers name was here).
Their conversation to each other:
- Did you know Marilyn has a blog? (That's my real name. It's not Jaksgirl, I bet you figured that huh?)
- She does it's super cute and clever
- My sister?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Yes dear Brother. I might actually be super cute and clever. Crazy huh?
This actually makes me smile and I thank my Sister in Law for passing it on.
I can totally hear him saying this and can see the little half grin on his face.
He is just a few months short of being 2 years older than me. Yup he is older than me. And quite a bit taller than me. He is slimmer than me. He's more athletic than me (he has also broken way more bones than me, like way more!). He has brown eyes. I have blue eyes. He's a sharper shot than me (this is an understatement, he's a brilliant hunter. I don't hunt. I shoot the breeze, that's about all I shoot!). He lives in a small town and loves it. I live in the city and love it. He loves the outdoors. I would rather be inside. He has 2 two daughters. I have 2 sons.
We are opposite in lots of ways but I couldn't love him more. I am very lucky to have been blessed with such a great older Brother. Growing up with him was never dull, I promise you!
Are you like your siblings or are you like me and Brother and different in many ways? Or are you an only child? I have always wondered what it is like to not have had a sibling to share your childhood with. Is it awesome being an only child or would you have rather to have had a sibling or two? Inquiring minds want to know!
