Beautiful. Just beautiful. If it sounds familiar, it’s the poem read by Cameron Diaz’s character Maggie to her sister Rose in the movie In Her Shoes, and it brought me to tears today as it does every time I see that wedding scene. I hope you love it, too, and perhaps you’ll use it in your wedding readings, or vows, or just a love letter to your most treasured one.
