The Speech of All Speeches


I am the maid of honor at my best friends wedding…in three weeks…OMG I literally just stopped typing, looked at my desk top calendar and recounted. THREE WEEKS. And I have a speech to write.
Normally, I’m a fine speaker. I don’t punctuate pauses with “um” or “like.” I can be witty, heartfelt, all around okay. But as the date grows nearer I realize that this isn’t just me standing in front of people talking. Which believe it or not, I actually don’t like doing. But me, standing there telling a large group of people how much I love these two people.
I love them so much I’ve been watching YouTube videos on “Best Maid of Honor Wedding Speeches” (Which as much as I love these people I am not rapping…) I’ve been going to the library for love quotes and etiquette books and so on and so forth. This means so much to me, that I’m over thinking it. So, today, I’ve decided to just sit down and write. Write about everything I know/love about them.
So my question to you is, when was the last time you sat down and thought about how much you really love someone other than your significant other? It really is a heartwarming experience. You should try it sometime.
