No, I am not talking about the new tv show on ABC. I am talking about my kids, I am talking about how on days like today I have to remind myself that my children do love each other. That hopefully because of all we know, and because we are an eternal family, they will always ove each other no matter what fault's each of them have. Today started bad, and has continually gotten worse. It is a bad sign, considering Jon just left this morning for 5 days. I am hoping for the best, that they will miraculously change into little darlings, but I am realistic, I know that is not going to happen. So I decided to look at some pictures of happier times between them, to remind myself that they do exist. They really are pills, but they are so full of life and love, and sometimes they just amaze me. Other times they crack me up, like how excited they were about a man getting arrested in our front yard today. They sat and yelled as loud as they could to get the officer's attention. Then they were excited when another cop came as backup. Then to top it all off, a tow truck came and took the bad guys car away. That was just the ultimate in excitement for them, they were very angry that I would not let them go out and ask for their autographs. I don't remember fighting with my siblings like my kids do, at least not as much mine do, but who knows? Maybe it is just because I remember all the good times. I love my brothers & sisters, I could not imagine my life without them. I am so looking forward to dinner at my mom's tonight, and knowing they will all be there. It is a continual love, even when one of them makes me mad. I hope that my children will have that kind of love for each other, I am trying to teach it to them, I tell them constantly that there brothers and sisters are the only constant things in their lives. Hopefully it will sink in someday, and hopefully soon. Everyone reading this needs to tell one of their siblings, preferably all of them, that they love them. I promise it will make you feel better. Spread the love!

P.S. I am sorry this whole thing was underlined, I don't know why it was doing it, and I couldn't figure out how to stop it, but apparently now it is working just fine!

Brothers and sisters can be the joy in your life or the vain (bain) of your existence. I to love my family but some times I’ve had enough of them and I just want to get as far away as I can. I do wish I could have learned to appreciate them more when we were younger. Life might have been a little easier growing up. I love Red and I’m so grateful for her and all she does for this crazy family of ours. She is truly under appreciated in our family.
