When you fight and bicker, and compete for who gets to sit in that favorite spot on the couch…It’s hard for me to help you see, but I know that you love each other. When I was a kid, we had twin brothers who seemed to constantly fight, physical, brutal fistfights. But, if anybody ever had an issue with one, the other had his back. Sibling relationships are tough, I know that you know that, but I want you to know that you should remember to be thankful for each other. As time goes by, I think you’ll learn to believe that regardless of circumstances. 

I’ll leave you with a poem from Robert Bruce “Love Your Enemy”

 

To seek vindication
from the
accuser

To protect
property and
reputation

This is called common sense

To be surrounded
by the lovers
and the lovely

To present a
reasonable
list of offenses

To master
the art of
self-defense

This is called shrewdness

To build a high wall
and fire down upon
unknown comers

To wage violent war
against those
who seek your head

To plot
against those who
plot your downfall

This is called wisdom

Love them?

Do good to them?

Pray for them?

Foolishness

It is difficult enough
to love those who love

Even
family and friends
deliver
bone-crushing
heartache
that an enemy
could never
dream up

This is beyond
the visualization
of World Peace

This is beyond
tolerance

This is beyond
any help the self
could ever muster

And
this
is
why
the
true
enemy
is
always
much
much
closer
than
we’d
care
to
admit
