Is it the pending holidays or are families always a problem? I love my sister, but... She is very opinionated and has no trouble sharing her thoughts. Recently I sent her a picture of myself and my DH at the base of a waterfall after a mile hike to get there. Her comment was that my eyebrows were too dark. This is a woman that does not have cancer, has professionally shaped eyebrows and has had surgically lifted eyelids. She could not keep that thought to herself and just say, “Wow! Congrats on the hike!” Even this morning I shared with her that I was making a couple of dishes to take to a pot luck luncheon. Her comments were that one sounded selection sounded awful. Why not say, “glad you feel well enough to cook and to drive an hour for a luncheon”. Oh well... Someday I will tell her this is why none of her children or theirspouses want to come to her house for any holiday. Everything is so very negative.
