Ask Aunty S


Dear Aunty S

My sister and I fight all the time and always make up but not this time.

She won’t speak to me and I am really worried we’ve gone too far this time.

Our kids are suffering as they have always been good friends and now they ignore each other at school and Church, which is heart-breaking, as they have always been the best of friends as well as being cousins.

What can I do to repair the damage?


Aunty S responds

Oh my darling girl, don’t let another day go by without making up.

Quick, race to the local Bakery and buy a huge cake and race to the Florist for a huge bunch of flowers and arrive at her doorstep and beg her forgiveness. It just doesn’t matter who was in the wrong. At the end of the day, nothing was done with sinister intent!

She is your sister and you and your kids love her and her family.

If tonight a bus hit her, how would you feel?

Of course, devastated; it goes without saying.

I don’t have a sister but I have a dear friend who helped us through very dark days three years ago and her name is Katrina. We never fight and if we were silly enough to do so, I would throw myself at her feet to beg her forgiveness because life is so very short and I love her.

Treasure those you love my darling.
