Day 4 #Loveuary❤ – Sibling Love

loveuary

It’s not always immediate, this sibling love.

I know that in mine and my brother’s case, we went through many ups and downs on our journey to become as close as we have.

I truly love my brother, I do.

But when we were growing up, it was a different story!

Boys were smelly, mean and nasty, and that brother of mine was no exception!

He was moody, and such a pain, always wanting whatever I had, running around the house like a loony, pretending to be a gun-wielding soldier and scaring me with creepy crawlies! (Seriously, one time he decided it would be hilarious to capture some daddy long legs in an empty cotton bud container, one with a see-through lid. He spent a whole evening chasing after me with it! Did I say I love my brother?!)

But on the flip side, when we were in any situation where either of us were threatened, we’d step up, and be there for each other! Once he was playing with some of our cousins, and I was sat in a room nearby. I heard him being picked on and the big sis blood in me began to boil. I stormed out and confronted these cousins of ours… (they were real tough nuts! Softies now, but pretty crazy as children!) I threatened to punch one of them in the mouth if he said anything to my brother. He tried me, and before I knew it there was a boy standing in front of me with blood pouring from his mouth! He ran in crying to his mum, who didn’t believe him at all! How could Ritu even do that? It was unbelievable! (Phew!)

Growing up, we became separated location wise, as he went to boarding school, and then I went to university, but that distance did make the heart grow fonder, and we became extremely close.  He would ask me advice on girlfriends, and I introduced him to my Hubby Dearest (then boyfriend!) before anyone else in the family!

Now he’s sat in another country, living his life with a beautiful wife and two-year-old son. We are still, so far away from one another, but our hearts are so close together.

Brother:
Hell bent on causing you strife
But truly a support for life!

    I love this. One casualty of my volatile upbringing was my relationship with my siblings. This is lovely. =)

    Here’s my post, with a little more spice – and a mystery.

    This is lovely Sis. It is true that brothers can be a bloody pain (I have 3 of them to cope with) but I wouldn’t be without them.

    How true! Though my siblings (all older) and I got along pretty well, we really grew close after we grew up. My heart swells with love just thinking of each one, especially since my only brother died in December. Oner can’t take them for granted or let petty irritations come between you because we are mortal and one never knows how long we have together.

    Lovely post Ritu. I have an older brother who lives in Edinburgh. I don’t see as much of him as I’d like to. Fortunately I am going up in April – can’t wait – so will catch up with him and my mum and dad then. Family is so important 🙂

    I do feel for those who don’t have siblings, family is family and no matter what ups and downs fall upon each other you need siblings to pick you up.

    Awh, the typical sibling feeling! My kids are pretty much the same. My oldest daughter has been like a lioness when someone bothers her brothers!
