Today I am Grateful for my Siblings (including step- and in-laws).
J~my little brother: Today is his birthday. I am grateful for all the times we have had to sit down and talk (ok not the times we talk politics).
J~my little sister: I am grateful that we are finally friends. With a 6 year age difference this took awhile! :) I am grateful that her job has brought her to Arizona and that we will get to spend more time together...my kids love their Aunt J.
M~my little (step) sister: I am grateful she is my sister. I am grateful she is a good mother to her children.
M~my oldest (step) brother: I am grateful he is my brother. I am grateful for the example of patience he is.
S~my next oldest (step) brother: I am grateful that I got the chance to know him and that he accepted me as his sister right from the beginning. I am grateful that I have an angel as wonderful as him watching over me daily. I miss you, S.
P~the next oldest (step) brother: I am grateful he is my brother. I wish we knew each other better. I am grateful he is such a good father.
R~my older (step) sister: I am grateful that she is my sister. I am grateful for her enthusiasm for life and her ability to see past the trials and to have Faith in God.
I am grateful for his brother E, and his sisters A, S, M & E. I am grateful for the rolls they played in helping my husband become the wonderful man he is today.
