Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 8 - November 8
I'm the oldest of eleven children--seven boys and four girls. I loved being the oldest. I loved holding and helping with the new babies. I loved staying home from school to take care of the little kids while Mom had a new baby. I loved fixing my sisters' hair and reading with my little brothers. I loved going to their games and concerts.
Sure we fought. Sometimes a lot. But we loved each other and were loyal. We could tease each other and fight with each other but we were (and are) fiercely loyal to each other.
I've tried to write a little paragraph about each one but they end up being too long and too repetitive. They're all smart. They're all funny. They're all good people. They all care about their families. They all work hard. They're all my friends.
And so, today I'm thankful for Richard, Nairn, Bruce, Robert, Lori, John, Lisa, Leslie, Spencer and Mark. I love you all.
