Beautiful post and oh, my goodness, what a wonderful quote.


as an only child myself I do feel that way!

My husband was an only child, and I was 9 when my only sibling was born. We feel the same way, watching our 6 with each other. Good post!

This was a gorgeous post. What a loving brother. It was so nice to see and made me for a brief moment lament that I only had too. Congratulations on making such gorgeous kids.


As a mama to seven, I really like that quote. We are far from being a picture perfect family, but my kids truly are each others best friends. +JMJ+


There is nothing perfect this side of heaven far as I can figure. ; ) But there is grace and that covers a multitude of imperfections and even big old screw-ups.


Love this post! I can think of no greater gift for a sibling, than a new brother or sister. I pray my children will always be best of friends!


I can't believe someone said that, yikes! Our fifth is a month old today. We went to visit my husband's family. His mother is one of seven, and they are close.Most of the remaining siblings live in the same city (a couple have died). I watched my mother in law at dinner with her sister,,,our new baby is named for them both,,,and said something about having so many siblings. They both said together, "I wish we had more!" These old ladies,,their own parents long dead, children away living their own lives,,,but they had each other.


As we begin to lose older family members the whole issue takes on new dimensions. What a blessing to have contemporaries through life.
