It’s National Siblings Day today and I do believe my brother and sister are two of the few people who know me best.
My brother, Chad, is rebellious and has the sweetest soul on earth. He’d give his last dime away to someone who needed it.
My sister, equally as sweet but in her own way, is the social butterfly of our family. She keeps in touch with childhood friends and distant cousins, yet she’s a Scorpio and can sting you with her sarcasm and wry observations. In fact, as I grew older and learned to cope with her criticisms a little more, I’d jokingly tell her, “Melissa, you have your tail out again.”
As for me, I think Chad and Melissa would describe me as the watcher and the worrier and the financially responsible one – maybe veering to the point of being miserly.
But that’s okay. We love each other just the same.
