For The Bride's Older Sister
She looked beautiful, simple and honest in that white dress. Her small bouquet of white roses, which you had lovingly made for her, was a sincere reminder of the love and honesty with which this young union had commenced, amidst the love and support of family and friends. You were the beautiful older sister. Thank you for the gift of hope and optimism about love and marriage. Life is beautiful and full of promises of better things, I was reminded yet again. In the hours I spent in that unpretentious and affectionate celebration, the message of love was prominent and so real. I thought it was perfectly O.K. for you to cry those tears my dear, as I could see them for what they were: tears of joy.
