Brothers and sisters share a history like no one else on the planet. They fought against us and stood up for us. They kept our secrets and told on us. They wanted us around when they wanted us around and told us to scram when they didn’t. They knew what would make us laugh and what would make us cry. We understood each other best.
Now, when we get together as adults, it’s fun and illuminating to see who remembers “the time when…” and how different each of our memories about the same incident may be. Given the perspective of time and experience, we can laugh at those times that seemed awful in our young eyes.
