In my head, I was thinking, Did she pray about W and me? Did she get a good feeling and was thrilled with my choice or a bad feeling but supported me anyway? augh again!!
Timidly, I asked her! She said, Oh, I feel totally responsible for W! When we met him, it was like checking things off a list in my head of qualities that I wanted for my daughter. It was the year that I walked on the treadmill everyday and would walk and ponder and pray a lot. I prayed for Joe that he would find someone that..... and I prayed that you would find someone that would take care of you and adore you and other qualities that I would list in my prayers. I knew you needed to get married because you'd be such a good mom. So, I didn't even really need to pray to find out if it's right because he had everything I'd requested for you.
It made me feel so good about my sweet husband that even if he drives us nuts sometimes, he's exactly not only just what I wanted but what my Mom wanted too.
And that's another reason why my Mom is so wonderful!
**parentheses added for explanation that augh! is not a bad thing. It's more, I can't believe my sister has a boyfriend that might come to visit and she's nineteen!
