66. Be nice to your sister. You are her confident, cheerleader and body guard.

Big sisters are the crab grass in the lawn of life.  ~Charles M. Schulz

This was one of my favorite adventures on our vacation/field trip - The Georgia Sea Turtle Center.

We began our journey by learning about the life of a sea turtle. Sea turtles come onto the beach to lay their eggs. They create 3 to 5 nests, and lay about 120 eggs. It takes the eggs 60 days to hatch.

Once the mother lays her eggs, she returns to the ocean. Leaving the eggs there to hatch on their own.

We were all fascinated by this fact - a mother, leaving her children behind, on their own.

We decided, well, at least they had each other. 

Siblings.

It reminded me that when Sweet Daddy and I are gone, a long, long, long time from now, you'll still have each other.

There's comfort in that for me. 

Comfort in your closeness.

Be kind to your sister big boy. You are her confident, cheerleader, and body guard.
