It’s the start of a life long friendship. It’s the start of many sweet childhood memories. It’s the start of something special. And I couldn’t be happier to see their relationship blossom.
I can just picture it now. Mommy peeking into the boy’s bedroom to see them snuggling in one of their beds, with a flash light, reading a book and giggling. Or maybe lined up at the window on their knees watching the fire flies go by.
Watching them that night pictured below brought back a flood of memories and emotions from my childhood. Sneaking into my brothers adjoining bedroom to listen to our bible stories on tape or watching the fire flies outside. Giggling and shhhooshing each other before Mom and Dad caught us. And later in our childhood when we shared a room and years of silly memories.
Makes me long for those carefree childhood days when you knew no pain, heart ache or sorrow. When your sibling was your built in best friend who was at your disposal 24/7 to play games, read books or play make believe. When the worst thing in life was your parents yelling out “time for bed”.
Most of all I wish I had a few more siblings that I could have had those memories with. I’m sure that’s one of the biggest reasons I long for a large family for my own children. There simply isn’t anything better than built in best friends!
