Happy Siblings Day

 

National Siblings Day: April 10

 

Happy Siblings Day! Did you know April 10th is designated as National Siblings Day? And did you know that some 80% of Americans have at least one sibling? That means, the majority of us have a brother and/or sister. And these days with all the blended families out there many of us also have half-sisters and half-brothers, step-sisters and step-brothers! Today's the day to go out and give one (or more) of your siblings a hug and tell them you love and appreciate them!

 

Favorite quotes about  sibling relationships which truly underscore how special and precious the sibling relationship is:

 

"Sibling relationships -- and 80 percent of Americans have at least one -- outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust." ~ Erica E Goode

“You can kid the world, but not your sister.”  ~ Charlotte Gray

"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll still be there."~ Amy Li

"It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea."~ Dylan Thomas

"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." ~ Clara Ortega

"Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk." — Susan Scarf Merrell

"There's no other love like the love for a brother. There's no other love like the love from a brother." — Terri Guillemets

"A sibling may be the keeper of one’s identity, the only person with the keys to one’s unfettered, more fundamental self." — Marian Sandmaier

"I sought my soul, but my soul I could not see. I sought my God, but my God eluded me. I sought my brother and I found all three." — Unknown

"You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them." — Desmond Tutu

 

I don't know about you, but as someone with four living siblings ranging in age from 68 to 92, these quotes all ring very true to me! (I've added pictures of me with two of my sisters.) There truly is nothing in our lives like our relationships with our brothers and sisters and today's the day to recognize that fact! Happy Siblings Day!

HI Nina Hollander - This is a very special tribute.  What a blessing to have siblings who have lived to 92 years old.  Though I don't live close to my brothers and sister, we still do Facetime and talk on the phone a couple of times a month. 

Thanks for sharing this.

A great tribute to siblings in general, Nina Hollander ... and how wonderful that they have a "Siblings Day" ...

I know I'm lucky.  Each of my 3 brothers lives close enough that we see each other fairly often.  And we communicate often too.  Each month we get together to play cards (and golf when weather allows) ... and are joined by another group of brothers that we've known since high school.  "Brothers from another Mother" in many respects, as they feel like family.  I share our pic at one of our golf holes ...

 

What a crew!  But we always have each other's back ...

Gene

My sisters, twins, were born when I was a senior in high school. My father died when they were young and Dolores and I had the opportunity to put them through college. They are very special.
