One year. One million memories.

This day last year, my lovely sis crossed over the threshold from being single to married. As K and I gave her away in marriage to the handsome bridegroom, our hearts overflowed. With joy, with sadness, with expectation. Watching her step into the car that took her away to her in-laws home, I ached. I remembered my first day at my in laws. It was chaotic and alien. I hoped she did not feel that way and she would learn to assimilate quickly.

Every time I called her in the past year my antenna was tuned to picking up signals of disquiet. Slowly, the frequency of my calls and worry lessened. My sis was truly and happily married.

Today sitting in my cozy sunlit living room I wonder if it was OK to wake her up early to wish her. My heart is full of love and good wishes for the couple. As I remember the day that was, I hope they are reliving the good and the bad and avowing to fall in love all over again.

So, my dearest sis and bil. I hope your day is full of love and happiness. I hope the year ahead brings you closer in every way. I hope to see you both soon in Philly.

You are in our thoughts today.
