An Open Letter To My Brother's Future Wife

Dear Future Sister-in-Law,

I should probably start by saying that I’m sorry. Let me apologize in advance for my family’s craziness. After being in this family for almost 20 years, I know that as an outsider looking in we may look “unique”. I will also apologize now for the million questions we are going to ask you about yourself and for the moments to come that we are skeptical because we want what is best for him. Although we may seem a little different to you at first, we want you to know that we welcome you with open arms and will love you like you are one of us.

Now on to my brother. Oh lord, you found yourself a keeper. I have never met a man with a bigger heart than him. He loves endlessly and tries to give the world to the people he loves. He defines loyalty because when he loves, he loves with his whole heart. There will be no room in is heart for anyone but you, (except me, of course). He is selfless, will do anything to protect the ones he loves. Trust me when I say, don’t test that one out. He will amaze you every day, if you watch him closely.

Please go fishing with him every time he asks. Don’t get mad when he spends a little to much on an ATV or a snowmobile. Please let him play the music he wants in the car and know that he loves driving with the windows down. These are all things that use to be my job, so when I am not there, it is all you. The last thing I want is to be replaced, but I will go to the end of the earth to see my best friend happy.

I know his every flaw and imperfection, and now it is your turn to learn. He doesn’t yell. Trust me, I have done plenty of things for which I should have gotten yelled at, but instead he plays the disappointed-in-me card every single time. So pay attention to how he is feeling because most the time, he will not express it unless you ask. He is a dare devil, he like things that are spontaneous and death-defying. He has given me enough heart attacks over the years, so now it is your turn to deal with them.

Part of me looks forward to meeting you, while the other part of me never wants to. You need to know that my brother does not love easily, but when he does love, he loves with everything he has. He tries to give the whole world to the people he loves. All I can hope for is that you reciprocate that. I hope you love him with all you've got until the day you die. I hope the vows you say to each other stay true for eternity.

I hope you always know how much you mean to me, even if at times I seem skeptical as I look out for what is best for him. You will absolutely have to prove to me that I can trust you with my very first, and my forever, best friend.

I can only hope that one day you read this so you know that you truly are one lucky girl to marry my best buddy.
