Comforts ~ Day 8, Or Don’t Gag, I Am Going to be Sappy

I cannot ignore these very important three “things” I am grateful for. They are:

1 Jim, my eldest brother

2. John, my older brother

And last but certainly not least:

3. Peggy, my younger sister.

First of all I am very lucky to have just three siblings because these posts are supposed to be about three things I am grateful for each day, and if I had a fourth sibling I am sure I would be thankful for them too, but it would mess up the whole balance of this challenge (even though I realize I cheated yesterday and just used a quote—but it was a busy day.)

I am seriously lucky to have these three people in my life. I know that not everyone is as fortunate as I am – you cannot choose your brothers and sisters, but I would choose these three without a second thought. I know at least two of them are going to read this and I don’t want to embarrass them too much – but guys—I do not know what I would do without you. You are there for me every step of the way and I know that I could ask any one of you anything and you would do it for me. And I for you. Okay, enough – one can only get so maudlin without the gag reflex factoring in.

I simply could not do a grateful challenge without listing three of the most important people in my life other than the three I listed in an earlier post (my husband and sons). It just would not be complete.

  1. How conevenient!
    Love the 3 stooges!

    • they are not to be confused with my siblings – none of them resemble a stooge — it was the word sappy that I was going for

      • So you say, but the image is there.

      • are you trying to get me in trouble — I can delete the pic

      • only one man’s opinion. however, I think you may have gotten yourself in trouble.
        Again, I love the stooges! However, I am not insinuating that they are my relatives.

      • you are a funny guy

      • Thank you.

  2. Ahhhhhh Lou, I feel blessed, thank you.

    • I could have gone into much more detail but did not want to embarass you too much – love ya

  3. Not sappy or soppy – just lovely.

  4. Now that, is very well done sappy. ;)

  5. With two sisters, I totally get that there’s only so much sap we can let out until the gag reflex kicks in. That being said, this was totally the right amount of sap. ;)

    • thank you – don’t want to go over the top – as siblings we have just started hugging and we are awkward as all get-out (I am–the others are better than I)

  6. Beautiful post :D
    Siblings are the world!

    Cheers

  7. I’m as lucky as you with three siblings- one sister and two brothers and consider myself very fortunate! Good that the number fitted! :)

    • yes, it was – and we are fortunate – my husband is not so fortunate with the siblings handed to him

  8. I’m guessing your siblings are pretty grateful for you, too. :)

  9. Thanks for passing by and the following.

  10. Lou Ann, I am one of four siblings too. Sisters and I so get this. We are different but every one of us are always there for the other– always. This is indeed a blessing and something to be grateful for.

    • It is, and I know it very personally, as my husband does not share this with his family, so I share my sister and brothers with him

  11. What can I say – You are absolutely right ;)

  12. There is nothing better than family!

    • I agree wholeheartedly about my family – and am glad you can say that too — not all families are so lucky!

  13. It it wonderful to have siblings that you totally love and appreciate..I had 9 but now have 2….Diane
