I was listening to a blog this week titled "Mega Families" you know the type...8 or more kids. They were discussing the pros and cons of large families. This lead me to reminiscing about my own childhood. Although I did not come from a "mega family", there were 5 kids on a very tight budget. At the age of 13 I can remember dreading the fact that I knew my parents were wanting another baby. This meant more chores and more babysitting! As an adult though, I think of my siblings and wonder where I would be without them? Friends are great and friends can come and go but there is no one there for you in a crisis like family! I love that we all live close and I love that I have a special bond with each one. That's not to say we haven't had our moments/years but that's what makes the bond so strong. It's thoughts like this that tell me adding to our family is essential!
