A Letter To My Future Brother-In-Law

A Letter To My Future Brother-In-Law

I just want you to forever make my sister happy and be in- love with love.

Meghan Rucka

Dear Future Brother-in-Law,

I am still in shock that in about a few more days you will officially be married to my sister. I honestly cannot believe it, but I am so glad that she chose to spend her entire life with you. I am just happy that she is finally happy. I am happy that she is ready for such a big commitment with yourself because I know how in love she is with you. I know when she hears your name, her eyes get bigger and her smile shines through.

I know that she is ready, that she is ready to go all in, forever. Now my question is, are you ready? Are you ready to have all of her, all of this, because I know she has been ready since the first day she met you? I know she loves all of you, all of your flaws, and all I ask is that you give you're all. That you give as much as you can give. That the relationship is always a 50/50. I know there may be rough patches in relationships and I understand sometimes you can't stand each other, but please promise me that through all the ups and downs you will always be there for her.

Please never disappoint her; please never leave her life. She has had plenty of men in her life that have traveled and have drifted in her life, in a flash. Please promise me that "death do us part," will really mean what it says. Please be there for her when myself, or my family cannot. Right now, we are across the country and the only person my sister has to turn to is, yourself. Please be there for her.

Please promise me that if she is ever feeling down you will go get ice-cream with her and get her red roses to make her smile again. I know I may be asking a lot from you, but I want my sister to stay, forever happy with you. I want this marriage that you are about to forgo to be her first and her last. She has seen my mom go through two, crazy divorces and I would hate to ever see that, especially from you two.

Please promise me that even at her worse, you will be right there standing by her side making her laugh. If you have to, call her Princess because I know she loves that, especially when you call her that (:! Promise me that you will listen, hear, and understand her. Please promise me that you will never knock her down. Promise me that you will always bring her up, never degrade her, never disrespect her. Promise me you will be her knight in shinning armor.

Eventually after the wedding you guys will want to settle down. You both want children in the near future and I know you guys will make amazing parents. But please promise me that she won't be the only parent doing all the work. Promise me that you will be in the children's lives as much as she is. Please promise me that when you have children that you guys will still go on dates and still love one another as much as you did without children.

Lastly, promise me that you will forever be a family and that you will constantly love one another will all you have. Promise me that you're ready for this big commitment and will forever be with my sister. Promise me when life gets hard that you will lean on her and vice versa. And promise me that she will be the first and last person you will think of before going to bed.

I'm excited for my sister's and yours journey together and I wish both of you the best! I am so happy that you will be part of our family in a short few days and I can't wait to be apart of a life-changing experience.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

The killing of an innocent Black man will be reinvestigated, and that news that brought me to tears.

On August 24, 2019, in Aurora, CO, a 23-year-old Black man named Elijah McClain was walking home from a convenience store after buying iced tea for his brother. He was wearing a ski mask because he was anemic and easily got cold. He was listening to music and dancing while he walked when someone called 911 on this Black man simply walking home.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
