She wrote, Get 7 Brothers, and shared a few of the reasons that she is BLESSED by all of her brothers ...
need a great strategy for keeping creepy guys away? get 7 brothers. it scares them right down to the bone.
need to learn how to put someone in a head-lock should they attack you? get 7 brothers. they are good at teaching such things.
want to know if you look good for a date, but not "too good"? get 7 brothers. they will GLADLY tell you these things!
need a reason to wear a jersey and eat too much popcorn at baseball games? get 7 brothers. tell them it's for THEIR birthday, and they won't even know it's your secret desire!
Jesus knew i was going to be a handful, so he gave me 7 brothers to keep me in line!
She went on to share a short paragraph about each brother, memories from childhood, and what each brother means to her.
When we were little we would play 'Oregon Trail' on the computer, and he would tell me the best strategy to not lose my cattle or kids to yellow fever.
When he was little we thought he would grow up to be a vet or marine biologist. He could look at those silly birthday cards with wacky animals on them and tell you, not only the name of the animal but where it was from and what it ate.
He was not always quiet ... and secretly he is a wild-child ... but only when he is in his comfort zone.
He loves music. We like to rock out in my car with the windows down.
One time we were on a road trip and he started CRACKING UP in his car seat; when we asked him what was so funny he replied, "i made a joke in my head!"
He leaves the best messages on my voice mail. i save every one.
You'll have to read the POST to find out which brother did what.
Then, Cassie wrote a blog post about her sisters ... Get 5 Sisters ...
can't find the right shoes to wear with that one outfit? get 5 sisters. one of them is bound to wear the same size.
can't decide if you want to cut your hair or keep it long? get 5 sisters. one of them might look like you and have the opposite of what you do ... look at a picture of them to decide.
need to tell someone how good-looking that guy is but your friends are sick of hearing about him? get 5 sisters. most likely they want to tell you the same sort of thing.
God knew i would be somewhat of a girly-girl, so he gave me 5 sisters to share in the FUN!
God knew i couldn't handle 7 brothers all alone, so he gave me 5 sisters to tickle, tackle, and race those brothers with.
She also wrote of some memories with her sweet sisters ..
she loved everything i did ... which was great until i was 12 and wanted to not have little clones. by the time i was 16 i got over it, and realized that no matter how many 'friends' stabbed me in the back or were mean, (my sister) would always be there ... and i didn't mind if she wanted to be like me.
she clapped on beat at 11 months. started singing before she could talk, and started playing piano when her fingers couldn't stretch a 5th across the keys.
she has the most beautiful heart. she serves people without question or the expectation to be rewarded.
she is quirky and silly. spunky and wild. quiet and sensitive.
she would rather sleep on top of her blankets so to not mess up her perfectly made bed.
she likes to ponder new information and has a never ending list of questions.
she is my little musical sister. when we were little she was on a dance team, took piano lessons, sang all the time, and as she grew up learned guitar and kept music within reach at all times.
Cassie says, "get 5 sisters. you'll never regret it."
I hope you'll pop on over to Cassie's Blog to read more of her thoughts on being the oldest daughter in a family with 13 children. Wow! We are BLESSED to know how much this Big Sister loves each and every one of her brothers and sisters. Yes. She does.
Cassie moved away 2 1/2 years ago. 450 miles away. But, that has not kept us apart. We are on her mind and in her heart, even when we are apart.
