    BROTHERS,SISTERS!  Sometimes just a big pain in the butt.  You gotta love them.  The thing you have to remember that they are family and you will see them everyday and or on holidays.  So you can't avoid them.  My advice to you is to be nice and watch what you say.  The other day I flipped out at my brother and thank god he forgave me.  But imagine if your brother or any family member got hurt and passed away.  And you weren't talking to them.  You would feel the regret for your whole life.  All I am saying is life doesn't give you second chances and before you know it you life could take your only chance away.  See you next time this is hew608 's friend cocolover

      nope, after 30 years of giving second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth......chances, I'm done.  And, yes, I can avoid them.  I have no more family other than 1 sibling, ha, if I really want to admit it.

    Yes, they are truly a God-send.  Especially when passing gas you have someone else to blame.

    Who says you can't avoid them? Been doing it for years. Plane landed on them. I parachuted out before it hit. No regrets. They'd do the same, if they had the chance.

      Well that might be your thought we all have our own! I was just saying it is hard to go through your life knowing the last time you talked to them was when you were fighting.

    Even though we are all approaching a half century old we still employ this joyous occasion at family get togethers.

    Well i haven't gotten to that point in my life yet but even if I talk to my cousin all the time I cannot get enough of her.  We are like 2 peas in a pod.

    My brother and I used to argue and fight a lot in our teenage years, but got along really well as we got older. However, by then he was living in Germany and I was living in France so we didn't get to see each other very often. Sadly he died several years ago and I really miss him - and I am now an only child sad

    I have four children aged 28,27, 26 and 23 this year - all very close, though often seperated by distance. When we do all get together as a family it is wonderful! Those moments are so precious...

    Make the most of your time with your siblings and your family smile
