Sam Recommends: “In My Life” by The Beatles

My sister is getting married tomorrow, and she has honored me with the title of Maid of Honor.

This means that I’ll be giving a speech tomorrow evening.

I’ve been thinking (panicking) about this speech for a full year now. More recently, I’ve been having nightmares that it’s the night before (or the night of) her wedding, and I still haven’t finished it!

The pressure is on, and the anxiety is real. Especially because she totally crushed her own M.O.H. speech at my wedding two years ago, and I want to hers to be just as special. Another very real concern is that I’ll break into ugly sobs before I can get through the first paragraph.

When I look back on my life, most of my happiest memories have been shared with her. Even more importantly, though, when I think back on the worst moments of my life, she’s been there too.

When I confided in her during the darkest time of my life, she was there to listen and support me. And then she sent me this song. Since then, I’ve never been able to listen to it without thinking of her, or without crying.

This one is for you, Emmers! Love you so much <3
