As the mother of two sons, I look forward to them each finding the right young lady to share their lives with. We have a kind-of small family so I look forward to meeting and loving her and her family. Hopefully, they will join in our fun.
It’s interesting (in my nerdy geeky way) to watch as the guys meet people, grow and change, and then find someone else. It’s just cool to see who they choose to spend their time with and why. Makes me feel good about the people they are becoming.
We’ve been on the other side. The side that sees some things in that person our child has chosen that they don’t. That causes us to hesitate. But when the time was right and the situation allowed, we talked about it. I’m so glad we talked about it. (Hopefully) Gently, kindly, maturely, but more importantly honestly. So the choices changed.
We met another girlfriend this past weekend. She is lovely, smart, & strong. Seems like a good match, but who knows? As a mom, it’s nice to meet new people and to enjoy them and believe they are good people for our sons to be sharing time with.
A good weekend, a good feeling.
life . is . good
