my chosen sister,
got married on Saturday.
There were wine bottles
and Jurassic flowers
and roses and peonies
and a very small dinosaur on her bouquet.
There was a brief rain shower,
during which we all stayed blessedly dry.
There was laughter and dancing
with far away friends,
home with us just for a little while,
and two of the best toasts I have ever heard–
they couldn’t help but be that way
Jessie and Mike have made their lives around people who are wonderful,
just as they are.
Making a wedding happen is always hard work–
I’m home sick for the second day in a row because of it.
But every once in a while,
I get to be a part of a day that is so special,
I would do it all over again tomorrow if I had to.
I love you both.
Thank you for Saturday.
May God smile on all of your days together.
ps (i miss you, jess.)
