I just want to give you a hug! The pain of that message and to hear your own sister speak that way — not to her husband which would have been terrible enough, but to YOUR father. Oh, that hurts. And did your father come to your defense? It doesn’t sound like it. I can now say something about how you should be proud of what you do but it sounds so cliche so I won't. Because that deep a wound can’t be patched up with a Hallmark line. But I hope your sister reads what you write. And I hope she will apologize from the deepest part of her soul. And that she will write you a list of ten things she admires about you. And that you will write her a list of everything you do for your family in one day. And that you never ever compare yourself to her. There’s no reason to.
