I'm an only child. And to be honest, I enjoy being an only child. It has its advantages and disadvantages but I think the biggest disadvantage is that you don't have that "go to" buddy for your random trips and other activities. That's why I really cherish my girl friends because they are the closest I have to having siblings.
Material things give you satisfaction to some extent, but it is the intangible gifts that would give you the truest joy-- friendship, hope, and love. Remember, when all else fails, you will be left with the intangibles. And it is these that you can hold to to help you get through the toughest times.
Cheers to great friends!-- and to the many adventures you'd have together!
