This was a great story! Nicely done, I really liked it.

God bless~
I am so glad this is fiction. I have a sister fourteen months older than me, and I experienced that tug-of-war "Why can't you be like your sister?"

It took many years and heartaches, but one day we discussed it and found that nasty question put to each of us.

Wonderfully written . . .

Wow, this left me so...unsatisfied. I wanted to hear some truth Ruth found in it all...that her father loved her just as much, but thought she was stronger and so he didn't do as much for her...something. But you didn't tie up the loose ends, you left them hanging.

As much as that frustrates me, I can appreciate your technique. I gave it much more thought than I would have otherwise. Your entry had me puzzling and meditating over the meanings and possibilities for a while before I could type in this comment.

A very good job of getting me to think - not many have accomplished that. Just ask my wife! :)
