As I walked on the beach with my family, I tried to make the most out of the lifeless weekend at the beach. It was November and the beach was empty with the exception of a few people walking their dogs. I admired the cool breeze and the wet sand in between my toes, but my surroundings still remained unexciting. Then I looked over to see my sister, Mira, and her Fiancé, Mena, together. Normally I would wonder how my sister ever fell in love with him, but this time I truly understood her happiness. He gave her comfort and peace. She loved him despite his impulses to comment on any and everything. It finally hit me that my sister was getting married and I was happy for her.
