On My Sister's Wedding Day
My sister is getting married today.
I wrote a hundred paragraphs here, only to delete them all. Some relationships are too complex and lovely and emotional to put on paper. We have a bond of nearly 30 years of shared laughter and grief and memories.
Brenna, you are beautiful and strong and creative and honest. You taught me much of what I know of friendship, loyalty, and the strength of sisterhood. I love you and am so happy you found a man who appreciates all those qualities about you. I wish you every happiness today and always.
