I'm not a good person to be around right now.
I rarely get angry, but I've just lost the lid...
I had my sister on the phone, in tears, because my parents broke the news that they aren't going to her wedding in two months time.
Up until yesterday they were, in fact she phoned me before they arrived, all happy.
After 24 hours of tears she was finally in a reasonable enough state to call me.
After a couple of sentences she had to hand me over to her fiance.
I then called my dad to hear his side of the story and give him a mouthful.
It boils donw to what "they" would lose, by way of how they are viewed in the congregation, rather than showing love to their only daughter.
If it weren't for the fact that I believe in being a better person than that, I'd shun them.
At least I got to hammer out a few scriptures and home-truths about the borg, in the midst of my tirade.
I have NEVER been so furious in ALL my life (and that's saying something).
What should be the happiest day of my sisters life, and one which most of the plans revolved around compromise with my parents, has now turned to ashes.
