My sister's opinion of me matters more than anyone else's at this time in my life. With my parents gone and with past husband and son out of my sphere, it's her approval and love that seems to loom over my parade; like watching the skies for clouds. Really? It's like I'm still 4 years old and I haven't mitigated her influence yet. High time. So interesting that I was able to adjust my energies in marriage to match my husband's level of effort, but I have never thought to dial down my engagement level to match my sister's disregard.
