Having just blogged a couple of heavies . . . I'd like to now take the time to say to my sister and her new hubby, welcome to the world of the Internet! They just got a new computer and plan on checking my little corner of the world out when they finally hook up to DSL.
This coincides with my realization yesterday that while I had initially embraced the newest member of our family for the sake of my sister, I no longer love him just because she does -- something I was willing to do but always with eyes open, ready to protect her if need be. I now love MY brother-in-law because he's MY brother-in-law and because he's a great guy and watching out for her is obviously something he was meant to do.
