They Are All My Family A Daring Rescue In The Chaos Of.

Some people spend their entire childhood fussing and fighting with their siblings and wishing they were an only child. Some spend their childhood in perfectly harmony. Well, not perfect, but harmony none the less. There are also those who have no other little person in their daily life to fuss with or to hang out with—poor people. What ever your relationship with your brother or sister is in childhood, for many it changes when they become adults. For some the relationship drastically changes and for others, the good relationship deepens to form a solid bond of friendship. Fortunately, many wake up as adults and wonder why they fussed and fought so much as a child.

All of the sudden they begin looking at their brother or sister as a real human being. Imagine that. They become someone you can talk to, rely on, and trust. After all, who better to trust than a family member? Who knows you better than someone who grew up in the same house as you? This page was written in honor of brothers and sisters everywhere. Hope you enjoy the quotes.

O n a bitterly cold April morning in 1998, my father died of a heart attack. The shock of his death was like a punch to the stomach. It was the first bereavement I'd experienced up close. For weeks, a cloak of confusion, rage and disbelief descended. By contrast, my mother's death, five years later, held no shock. It arrived clearly signposted, with a predictability that was agonising: diagnosis, scan, operation, false hope, radiotherapy, hospice, morphine, death.

At 39 I'd become an adult orphan, a member of the club that nobody wants to join but most will. One parent dying was devastating; but when my mother died it changed me for ever. I felt anchorless, as if I was no longer anyone's child. I may have looked the same but something inside me shifted.

A friend likens being an adult orphan to being the only tree left standing in a forest. I know what she means. For me it's as if my roots have been hacked away: my parents are the reason I'm here, what held me up. They had been the one stable point during my whole life, the constant. Yes, I'm an adult and can stand alone. But there are times I still need my mother and father, times I feel very alone. I have a lovely husband and wonderful friends. I'm grateful for all of them. But they're not my parents.

Some people spend their entire childhood fussing and fighting with their siblings and wishing they were an only child. Some spend their childhood in perfectly harmony. Well, not perfect, but harmony none the less. There are also those who have no other little person in their daily life to fuss with or to hang out with—poor people.
