Life is so interresting. It is amazing how different people solve their problems. My older sister was sexually abused as a child. It has always affected her. Anyone who has been abused will know this and how it affects all your relationships and self esteem etc..

Well, This sis told me that she just got a piercing done on her clitoris. I guess they do it through the "cape". I was floored and didn't know what to say. I didn't want her to feel bad about my reaction when she was so excited but I just couldn't bring myself to say, "Wow! That is sooooo cool!" So we chatted about it and found out that this is her way of taking her power back that she lost as a child. She says when you let yourself feel the pain in that area physically, it is easier to let go of the pain emotionally with it as it heals. I don't know about that but "more power to ya babe!" She is the one who studies Scientology. She thinks it looks pretty and that I ought to do it. Uh..... don't think that's gonna happen!

I love this sister. She is 41 this year, she has dark hair and beautiful, light blue eyes. Happy but a bit controlling. She is running with me (in Oregon though) and is the one who is inspiring me to do better at it!. She just had her third devorce. Well, kind of, she has been living with this guy for 3 years. I happened to love him. He was great and loved to run marathons! My kind of guy! But it just didn't work out. She feels pretty low about it and is takinig a trip to Europe for a month in July. Alone!!! Gutsy! But feels drawn to do it. It kind of reminds me of the movie "Tuscany". I love her so much and I think as people we need to learn how to let go and not judge family. It is so hard sometimes but these are the people I want to spend eternity with, crazy as it sounds, and my sisters are my closest friends.

Just keep praying for those you love.

Ummm...I don't think ANYTHING looks overtly "pretty" in that area--regardless of any embellishment!

I think it's interesting what people do to fill the void in their lives ...I, too, have family members who are doing the same types of things as your sis, and sometimes I just want to scream, "It's the gospel you are missing!" I am obsessively loyal to my family (you hurt them...I will hunt you down...) despite their "interests," and I know that I love them, but at the same time, I get frustrated at them for potentially not being "there" in the end!
I agree with you that you just got to keep loving them, praying for them, and living your life as best you can so maybe they will want "some of that" in their lives!

I've always found it fasinating how different we can be as sisters yet still be so close and understand each other. I suppose it's no different with us as a human race: we are all brothers and sisters - different in our tasts and interest, but those differences can be the thing that draws us together and edifys us. I'm sorry for what happened to your sister. I've had that happen to someone I love very much and it will always effect them. I hope your sister finds the peace she's been longing for and reclaims back the power and strength that was stolen from her.

Great comments! I agree on that there is not much beauty down there! She offered to let me see. I think not! I really feel that they are searching for the gospel and just refuse to accept it. Too many rules to some people. It's so sad.
