Siblings -the longest relationship you have

Siblings are the longest thread through our life. They are the most enduring relationship we ever have in our family. Brothers and sisters are there in the beginning, when we’re just babies and toddlers. They usually go through pimply teenage misery with us, attend our wedding, then sometimes drift off as we raise our kids and come back to a closer relationship in midlife. Often the most enduring bond as we grow old is that of a sister or brother.

    Thanks for the additional sibling/family links. I love my family. But back to siblings…the long thread of sibling commitment was tenderly and firmly represented in a book about Harper Lee (author of To Kill a Mockingbird). The Portrait of Harper Lee in tandem with her immortal Mockingbird have strong family themes skillfully interwoven with racism, culture, community and justice.
