Soooooo, my sister is getting MARRIED this weekend?! I absolutely can not believe this is happening, and I am beyond excited and delighted for her. ¬†Recently, we were at her bachelorette party and, during the course of the weekend, we (my three sisters) went to run some wedding errands. During these errands, I continually had the experience of realizing how different my sisters and I think. My thoughts of what is next, what the “right” decision is, varied from both of my sisters. It was an awesome reminder of how gray “being right” really is –

What we see so clearly as right or true is very definitely so different from those around us. Our truth is colored by how we are raised, our communities, our groups, our religions or beliefs. Our truth is colored by our own individuality and perceptions of the world around us. Very often differences of opinion don’t come down to right or wrong but to both being right from different views. It is a great reminder to take off those glasses once in while, polish the lens, and then try on someone else’s glasses for a second. Slow the roll on saying no or shaking your head in judgement. Open your ears and listen with a fresh perspective. And then, if it is your sister, go ahead and tell her she is wrong anyways. After all, that is what sisters do…

Littlest Sister, Bride-to-be, Me & our Mom!
