My sister's wedding is THIS WEEKEND and I'm the Matron of Honor and I still haven't written my speech. How awful is that? I just have zero clue about what to say. I keep trying to think of funny stories (my sister even texted me saying: "Your speech better be funny!" Ahhh!), but it's not working. The only stories I can think of are either horribly embarrassing or make me look like a brat. lol I don't really know the groom all that well, since I was living 3.5 hours away during their entire courtship, so I can't really poke fun at him. Do any of you have some advice about this kind of thing? I was thinking of just giving up on being funny and just giving them some short, practical marriage advice, but I can't think of any of THAT either! lol All of my advice comes from a religious perspective, and my sister and her fiance aren't religious, and neither are our families. Do you any of you have some practical, not-cliche marriage advice? I'm freaking out about all of this because I only have today and tomorrow to write it, because after that I'll be going home to help out with all of the wedding craziness.
I have a prayer request for y'all! My husband won't be attending the wedding because he will be going to a Theo.logy of the B.ody Symposium and pilgrimage in Rome and Assisi. We were both invited, but obviously it fell on the day of my sister's wedding and so I can't go, but my sister said she wouldn't mind if Boomz went, which was very gracious of her! :) Could you please pray for safe travels for him? I've got horrible thoughts running through my head about everything that could possibly happen to him while he's gone. What if the plane gets hijacked? What if the plane crashes? What if there's an earthquake? What if he meets a beautiful Italian woman and runs off with her and never comes home?! Just teasing about that last one, of course! ;) This will be the longest I've been away from him (nine days!) since we've been married. Please pray for him!
P.S. I'm so glad I'm back to blogging. I've missed you all! :)
