Tuesday’s Quotes April 10, 2018 – Siblings

“Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring, quite often the hard way.”
— Pamela Dugdale

Apparently April 10 is National Siblings Day. According to the Siblings Day Foundation, it was founded by Claudia Evart, who had lost her own siblings early in life, as a way to honor them. Their mission statement is simple:

“The initial goal of the Siblings Day Foundation (SDF) is to establish a national day of recognition for brothers and sisters, to be called National Siblings day, held annually on April 10th. Siblings Day follows the spirit of Mother’s and Father’s Day, an uplifting celebration honoring people who have helped in our development and who have shaped our values, beliefs and ideals. Further the SDF seeks to unite and reunite siblings who may have been separated by distance, by circumstance, by birth and adoption or interpersonal familial issues.”

So, to my brothers, my sisters-in law, and to my daughters – and to everyone that has, or has ever had, siblings – Happy National Siblings Day!
