In Case You Missed Sibling Day

Yesterday was Sibling Day.

If you were on Facebook, I’m sure you noticed.

Your Facebook feed probably looked like mine, with pictures like this one:

Becca

And this one:

Joelle

And this one:

Monica

And this one:

ErinCollin

And this one:

Sarah

And this one, which is my favorite, because it’s my friend, Mike, with his brother, Shane, and,…

…as Mike wrote, “Shane lives with autism, and I live as his little brother. Shane uses the Bert and Ernie puppets to express emotions he can’t express on is own. So of course they were invited to our wedding. They wore bow ties.”

Which is RAD.

But just in case you’re like me and you didn’t look at Facebook ’til late at night which is when you went, “SHOOT!” and “CRAP!” and “I MISSED ANOTHER IMPORTANT FACEBOOK DAY!” like that time you missed International Women’s Day and, even worse, the time you missed National Doughnut Day, I want you to know It’s Not Too Late.

It’s NEVER too late to participate in important occasions

All you have to do is this: figure out what the spirit of the holiday is — the real, TRUE meaning behind the day — and do something that honors the intent that underpins it all.

For International Women’s Day? Honor an important woman in your life.

For National Doughnut Day? Eat the heck out of fried, sugary dough.

And for Sibling Day? Take a minute to tell your sibling you haven’t forgotten him. 

Like I did for my brother.

“How come you didn’t post a cute picture of me with you for Siblings Day, Jeff? You’re a jerk.”

Which is TOTALLY as sweet as what Mike did for his, and is, I’m sure we can all agree, completely in keeping with the spirit of Siblings Day.

Happy Belated Siblings Day, everyone.

In conclusion, don’t wait another day to tell your brother he’s a jerk. I’m sure it’s what Jesus would want you to do. (Or Jesus wants you to be like Mike. Whatever, Jesus.)

ABOUT BETH WOOLSEY I'm a writer. And a mess. And mouthy, brave, and strong. I believe we all belong to each other. I believe in the long way 'round. And I believe, always, in grace in the grime and wonder in the wild of a life lived off course from what was, once, a perfectly good plan.

  1. My only sister thinks Facebook is for teenagers and perverts so I wasn’t able to celebrate. Luckily, there were some teenagers and perverts online who posted pics of their siblings and since I like to look at pics of people other than myself anyway, it all worked out. Still, a missed opportunity to share our childhood pic in matching Holly Hobby hats and aprons with the world. Whatevs

  2. Um, I’m pretty sure that’s a pic of your brother shooting something while wearing an easter bonnet. While I obviously don’t know him, he’s your brother so I guess I’m not surprised.

  3. LOL Too funny.
    I wish I had a pic of all my sibs together. Kind of hard when you’ve got 14 kids scattered across the US, to get pics.
    We lost a sister this summer, and her birthday would’ve been just a few days before, so I didn’t put up pics for sibling’s day. Maybe next year.

  4. My older brother unfriended me years ago so that I wouldn’t embarrass him. Too bad
