Mommy turtle made me very sad last night. I will not go into detail about it but I feel as though I have lost my sister. Our so called "Twin/Sister Powers" never warned me of this. My SISTER told our mutual best friend last night that she needs to choose between being friends with me, or being friends with her. The gruesome details of the email that she sent are not to be mentioned but the way my sister put it, made it seem as though she were making the ultimatum about her worst enemy that Shaunney was having to choose from, not her sister. There were things she said about me that I WOULDN'T say about my worst enemy! She is my sister. At least I thought she was.
I have never been so hurt in my life by her. Growing up she would always be the one who would "steal" my friends so I just learned to accept the fact that I could either NOT bring them home to meet her or know they would like her more and they would become HER friends. It was a way of life in my family. To this day I have very few good friends. The ONE good friend I have is Shaunney who I don't really consider my friend, she is more like family. Like a long lost sister. I met her thru my sister but I would have met her thru my husband too so that's not a big issue. Shaunney is 2 years or so younger than I am, and 5 years younger than my sister, but when we met Shaunney and I just clicked and have been close ever since.
Our children have grown up together, she has been in BOTH of our weddings as a bridesmaid. SECOND in line for both of us behind the Maid of Honor which was each other. To me she isn't a choice of being friends with anymore, I will love her as FAMILY no matter what happens. I told her that too. I am never going to make her choose. I completely understand if she feels like she needs to be loyal to my sister because she was her friend first. I am not that type of person. I am not even the type of person to bring this up to my sister.
I am still going to make her the hat's and the turtles for her birthday. That is why I started this by calling it "Mommy Turtle." I am still going to celebrate with her, and love her like a good sister does. I don't understand why she hates me so much. I don't know what I did to make her so disappointed in me. Maybe someday she will tell me, but at this point I don't even want to know. She is my sister, and I love her no matter what.
