Sweet Memories

Just an old school photograph, battered and worn, but what sweet memories it brings back.

Sweet Memories.

There they are, arms around each other, with the sweet innocence of youth, posing for their school photograph. He is 7 and she is 5. They are brother and sister, they are close, and they love each other, even though they fight at times, they cannot bear to be apart, almost like twins.

Their personalities are so different. He is shy and retiring, he has a few good friends, but none like her. She is chatty, bubbly and effervescent, always keen to run around and play, but glad to hug her big brother, who keeps her safe when they walk home from school.

One day they will be grown up, and before that even, they will broaden their interests, taking hobbies and interests in different directions. She will reach an age where she doesn’t want her big brother’s protection, and he will feel he doesn’t want his sister, who never stops talking, hanging around with him and all his cool friends

But in the meantime, their world contains each other, and as I look at this photograph, it brings back such sweet memories.
