Unreal

So my sister is getting married today. Actually, right now, she is in her dress, flowers in her hair, feet bare, at sunset, in Hawaii. Getting married.

And I am not there.

There is, of course, a dramatic backstory. Bad relationship with my mother. Not wanting any "complications" on her big day. Hurt feelings, angry words, tears. It's all been done.

But today, what it boils down to, is that my baby sister, the girl that I played Barbies and My Little Ponies with, is getting married.

And I am not there.

It breaks my heart a bit. And feels completely. . .

Unreal.

I am sorry. That sucks. I'm sure your sister knows that you are thinking of her and that you are there in spirit.

This post brought tears to my eyes. I hope that things can be resolved with your mom in the near future!

Oh no...I am so sorry.

I'm so terribly sorry, Katie. I wish I had the power to make you invisible so you could be there and just not have to deal with the family drama. XOXO

I'm sorry, I know exactly how you feel. I wasn't at my sister's wedding and she didn't come to mine, out of an understanding for one another because of things my mother did to both of us. It's sad and unreal.

I'm sorry. I hope you'll be able to go forward and regain a good relationship with your sister.
