My sister and I were raised to be really close. It’s been hard to be so far from her after living so close together most of our lives and in some cases living together. I miss her every day and I love her tons. But it’s only a matter of time before we are together again. My sister has been through everything with me and when i think of someone who’s known me all my life aside from my mom, she’s it. I want to give thanks for my sister. She’s been a great friend, an amazing mother and wonderful aunt. We love to shop together, go out to eat and do fun stuff with and without the kids lol. I miss her dearly and I hope she knows how much I care for her.

    I have a sister and a brother. I get along with both of them, but unfortunately live too far away to see them. I’m in PA, my sister is in Florida, and my brother is in South Korea. Sure wish I could afford to see them one more time.

    I have 4 sister’s and 1 brother. We are real close. 3 live out of town but when we all get together it’s like we were never apart and it’s one big party with the 6 of us all their children and their spouses and than all their little ones.There’s like 60 of us plus our parents!!https://millytaiden.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

    The sibling thing is a little complicated. Lol. I’ve raised by my mom and (since 3 yrs)my step dad with my brother and sister. My real father, whom my sister and I have dubbed “sperm donor”, in addition to us, had 9 other kids by various women. One younger than my oldest daughter. I’m friends with a few on Facebook, met two of them and love them dearly. As for my sister, she is my best friend. And I’m so excited that she is about to move less than 15 minutes from me.

    I have one sister and one brother and I am smack in the middle of both of them. So that means when we were younger that I would almost always get the blame lol but despite all of that we still get along pretty well and I love them despite how they even today still try to blame me for things that I didn’t do . Lol hehe ok so maybe I did do some of those things but surely not all of them. Lol https://millytaiden.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_whistle3.gif

    Aww thank you again for sharing!
    I have a sister who is 6 years older and a brother who is 4 years older. I’m really close with my brother even if he doesn’t discuss his personal life. My kids love their uncle Tom. My sister and I had always went back and forth with either getting along or fighting like crazy. As we got older things got better but we still have our moments. ♡♡

    As kids my sister and I were not very close… she resented me because my parents were always at work and I was left to watch her .. we did not speak for almost 8 years and I missed the birth of both her children.. but one day my mom had a terrible fall, we didnt know If she would be ok and my sister and I started speaking and slowly we started building a relationship. .. now 13 years later we are inseparable. .. we live together and her and I have been raising her 2 boys who are now young men… I really dont know what I would do without her, she keeps me in check so I dont get down on myself and she is the person who always has my back. ..

    I recently discovered that I have 7 more sisters and 2 more brothers, so I have a total of 13 siblings! The ones I grew up with are my core unit, but upon meeting my other set I find 3 of them who act like me!
    It’s been hilarious learning how to deal with older versions of me ?! Now I have to come up with tactics against myself!

    My brother and I were adopted when I was 7 and he was almost 5 (he is my biological brother) He lives in the Keys. I live in MD. When my mom was alive and my brother and his family lived near Pittsburgh, we always got together at Thanksgiving. My SIL’s parents would join us and we all brought a dish. It was fun and a bit chaotic. I miss seeing them all but his kids are now married with families of their own and he is divorced. I learned, several years ago, that our birth mother had another daughter she gave up for adoption. My brother knows her name and information and went to see her before telling me about her. She does not want to meet me because she is happy with her life as it is..and little bro can be tactless and pushy when things don’t go according to his plan. It makes me sad. I feel like I’m missing something. And I just wish I’d had the chance to meet her.

    I am the youngest of 10. All half siblings, so I don’t share both parents with any of them. 3 brothers, and 6 sisters. I am also an A.I. child, but my biological father sees me as his own, and I think of him as my father, not the man that is listed on my birth certificate.

    As for how my siblings and I get along. There is a 17-18 year gap between me and the oldest. I get along with all my siblings pretty well. But 2 of my sisters I get along with the best. One of them is 16 years older than me, and she was like a mom to me growing up. The other sister is 7 years older than me. Both have moved across the country, so seeing them is so much harder.

    I have 8 siblings. 4 brothers and 4 sisters. Ranging from 38-12 in age. We are a crazy mix of half, step, adopted and full relation and Honestly we get along great! I am truly thankful that my siblings and I are close and love each other unconditionally. Not many have the bond that I have with so many different types of siblings and I can thank my parents for fostering those bonds. For example, my father’s son and my mother’s son,from different marriages, are close and spend holidays together even though they are not technically related in any way. We are allowed to love each other with no animosity or favoritism. That’s what family is all about!

    I am the oldest of four. I love all my siblings. I have two brothers and one sister. Boys are sandwiched in the middle. One of the boys is a USMC and the other is a high school drop out. My sister just graduated from high school and is going to be a vet tech. Right now they are all in NC with my mom and I’m stuck in our home state of WI. I love and will miss them all for the holidays and my birthday.

    I have 3 brothers. Two live in Florida and the youngest and baby of the family lives a couple miles from me. My two older bros are 10 and 9 yrs older than us so we were almost raised in different generations. But when we lived there we were pretty close. Then our parents divorced and my younger brother and I with my mom moved up here to Ohio. It was tougher for me being female and emotional or whatever but it’s been difficult being separated from all my brothers hard to get used to not having them close with me. But fortunately I do have one brother with me and we are very very close and we even become closer since my mom died this summer in June and we look out for each other. So even though we my younger brother and I fought like typical siblings when we were little, I don’t know what I would do without him.

    I have an older (by 6 1/2 years) brother. We are close and sometimes will text for hours, just chatting. As a kid, he let me hang out with him and his friends.

    I also have an older (by 9 years) sister. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we were separated for most of our lives. We are building our relationship and getting closer every day.

    I am so thankful for both of them.

I know no matter what he’ll be there to help if I need it just like I’m here for him. I haven’t met my younger brother yet but I get to finally meet him in December. The times I have talked to him on the phone are wonderful. I wouldn’t trade either one for anything in the world.

    I am the baby of six kids. The three oldest are my sisters each other about 1 1/2 to 2 years younger then eachother. There is around 17 years between me an the oldest, these three have been more of 2nd, 3rd , an 4th moms to me then just sisters. Each has cared for me as a baby, from diapers to bottles. Each has picked me up an dusted me off while I learned to walk, run, ride bikes an rollerskate. They have given me neices an nephews that are more like sisters an brothers. Through my rebel teen years they either helped me cope, helped me get into to trouble or helped me get out of it again. At 33 these three has been other moms from the start, they still help out at my house, hang with my kids an share in all of my ups an downs. We grew up on a farm an life was tough, dangerous an not always adult supervised. With out them I probably would have atleast brokennsome bones along the way, but they kept me safe. I love them so much an couldn’t imagine my life without them. I love my brothers too, they were maybe more onery an sometimes full of boyish pranks but they still loved me.https://millytaiden.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_heart.gifhttps://millytaiden.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_wink.gif

    I have two sisters, but only see one regularly, as she lives interstate and is pretty self-absorbed (middle child. LOL).

    Anyway my younger sister and I have been best friends for as long as I can remember, even though there is 6 1/2 years between us.

    Having come from a broken home, then losing our Mum when my sisters were only 16 & 17 and I was 8 months pregnant with my 4th child at 23, we learnt to be pretty self sufficient. But as we grew older and started they having families, it drove home the importance of not losing touch and the need for family support that we hadn’t really ever known growing up.

    We occasionally don’t see eye to eye, but no matter what happens, we are always each others rock and shoulder to cry on when the chips are down.

    I have two sisters and two brothers, Only one actually blood related. He and I don’t speak. His wife (soon to be ex) liked it that way.
    My sisters are my best friends in the world. They both live in IL but we talk as much as possible. My one is crazy! She’s the youngest but the wildest! To the point she has John Cusack’s autograph tattooed on forearm. But she’s also the one that would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. My other sister is the one that has to walk the hardest road in life. She chose every mountain to climb and fell hard each time. Her first husband left her , her second passed and now we’ll find out on the 3rd if we’ll loose her. Mountains…Tough and rough.
    My other brother he thinks he’s god’s gift to women….that is if you like twigs who still think mullets are AWESOME and working as a janitor is super…LOL
    I have the best siblings…they look out for me and are there when I need them, and most of all when I had no one who cared they did…and that’s what siblings are for :)

    I have 3 half sisters, 2 step sisters, and 1 brother. My sister Ashleigh is probably my best friend. No matter our problems, arguments, or even views we still are by each others sides. Even though she’s younger than me, she was the one there to go beat up the boys who broke my heart. Even though I don’t get to see her everyday anymore I know that I can still count on her if I need her. My brother is the same way. He’s my little protector. We pick on each other, we fight, but at the end of the day if he needs me he knows I’m only a call away, and if need be I’d drive the 14 hours to Colorado to see him.

    I have 2 brothers and 1 sister. My sister is the best and never gets mad. She battles health problems every day but she fights thru it. Although I believe many people take advantage of her, she never says no. I have given my oldest brother living rights to my property so he is my neighbor too lol. He is hard headed but he will do anything to help. My other brother lives further away. He is the funniest. If something is going to happen to someone, it’s gonna be him and your guaranteed to laugh about it, like how he left his window down one night with a McDonald’s bag in floorboard. Little did he know that when he got in truck to go to work, an opossum would attack his leg from under the seat,Lol. My parents have passed away and yes it has caused some strain but we are always there for each other. Thanks for asking, it was nice to remember what I am thankful for.

    Youngest of four. Five years older is brother 30 mins away; we see each other dozens of times each year. Ten years older is sister 3 hrs away; we see each other once a year and talk maybe twice a year. Fifteen years older is sister 2500 miles away; we see each other every year, talk on the phone maybe three times a year, and email constantly with each other. Yeah, everyone in my family gets along (but one sis prefers her privacy more).

    I have 3 older brothers. Its sad because up until a few years ago I was really close with the eldest 2. But do to some other family stuff that I got thrown into the middle of I don’t ever really talk to them. The youngest of the 3 and me tolerate each other I guess. LOL We both still live with my parents and he tends to like to piss me off. So no I cant say that I’m close and it makes me sad but I’ve created my own family and my “friends” are more like siblings to me.

    Welll, I grew up by myself. I was my mother’s only child and I didn’t always get to see my siblings. When I turned 16 and could drive I would go and pick up my brother and 2 little sister every chance I got! They were my lifeline when things in my life were topsy turvey and I will forever be thankful for them. I’m much older than they are and I have watched them blossom into pretty great adults.

At lastly, I have a younger, half-sister. We are very close, we were always together, when i lived in NC. Now living in LA, I do not get to spend enough time with my siblings. However, our bonds are sturdy and we always come together for each other.

I was unable to have children and then this year I had to have an emergency hysterectomy so Ry fills that hole. I’m very close to both brothers, with my parents living next door and my older brother only 15 miles away I get to see them a lot.

    My sister and I raised our youngest brother. He passed away 20 years ago and we still find ways daily to celebrate his life. Our oldest, younger brother, we are still getting to know. We laugh all the time as people find it hard to believe we didn’t grow up together. What can I say? Family is family and we all rely on each other

    I have one brother and one sister. I’ve been close to my brother for a while but he moved to North Carolina which is approx. 18 hours away so it’s been hard. We try to communicate as much as possible to ensure we stay close. My sister and I haven’t always been close. She’s 9 1/2 years younger than me so I was an adult for most of her life. For the last 3 years or so though we have tried to get together as much as possible and stay in touch all the time. Without them life wouldn’t be as wonderful as it is, especially since then Imwouldnt have anyone to complain to when my mom makes me crazy. Haha. Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for the giveaway!

My mother left us when I was 12, brother was 10, and baby sister was 3. My little brother and I get along fairly well, but he isn’t much of a talker lol. He is a introvert, but I love him.

    I have a brother and a sister. We aren’t as close as I’d like, but I’m working on that.

    I am the oldest of four with one sister and two brothers. I was really close to the youngest when he was a baby and toddler but not for the past few years, and au have never been close with my sister because of our personalities. The sibling closest in age, a brother is not even two years younger than I am and we have always gotten along. We will probably get along for the rest of our lives.

    I have 5 siblings. 4 sisters and a brother. When we were younger we used to fight like cats and dogs but now we all get along perfectly. We rarely fight and we hang out when ever possible.

    Milly, your words about your sis are so sweet! I’m an only child myself, so the closest thing I’ve had to siblings are my best friends over the years. I am so thankful that I’ve been given these beautiful, kind, loving individuals who have taken me into their lives and hearts, and given me a family when there were times I didn’t have one of my own. I’ve met most of their parents, and have been welcomed in as if I am one of their kids!!

    I had an older sister and even though I lost her nearly 18 yrs ago I miss her and thank God everyday that I got the time I got to be with her. We fought like sisters always do but when it mattered she was the greatest friend and sister I could’ve ever asked for. I miss her and think about her everyday all day but knowing I’ll see her again makes her loss a little easier.

    I am the youngest of 3 kids. My sister was 20 when I was born and already married. My brother was 12 and by the time I was 4 he was moved out and living with his now wife. So I pretty much grew up in the house with just my parents. But my sister. She was awesome. She lived in the main city and was a model and going to school for nursing. I spent my summers with her and she supported me at all my school events and defended me when she found out I got teased in school. My brother started a family while I was still young but I gained another sister and grew up with my nieces. Sadly, my sister passed away April 21 2008, 5 months prior to my mom’s passing. It wasn’t until after she died I realized my tuff fun loving sister suffered alot herself but kept it hidden to protect me. I use to ask myself why God chose her, but after my mom passing and learning the secrets my sister hidden I know now it was to save my sister that pain of losing my mom. She suffered so much prior that I have to believe she has been set free from her pain. My brother and sista (my sister in law) are around and I’m thankful to still have them. I took my family for granted prior to all this and now I cherish every moment I can. I know my sister and mom are watching out for us now. Thanks for the chance and many blessings to you and your entire family

    I have two brothers and a sister. I basically have no relationship with my brothers because they don’t respond to overtures. They are both cordial if I see them at my father’s home though. My sister and I are best friends in part because we live close as well as having similar interests.

    I´ve got one younger brother, and even if we don´t talk every day he´s still someone I trust and love.
    I know he´ll be there if I need him.
    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Saturday!

    I have an older sister and a younger brother. My sister and I are 22 months apart in age and my brother and I are only 15 months apart in age. We moved around a lot when we were younger and because we were so close in age we never really needed other playmates because we had each other. When I was about 9 years old my mom started to raise 2 of my cousins and by the time I was 12 we added another cousin to the mix. I grew up with 5 siblings that I’m grateful for everyday because we always have each other’s back whenever we’re needed. No matter if we live close to each other or if they live several states away whenever we get together we always have a blast and fool around like we used to when we were younger which makes me happy. https://millytaiden.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

    I have my brother and we have a good relationship as long as we don’t live in the same house together. If we live together we fight to the extent of we can’t even stand the sight of each other. We are now in two different states and get along great. lol. But I wouldn’t want anyone else for my brother.
