The Other Woman
I am no longer the main woman in Clayton’s life. I have actually known this for a year. And I knew it would eventually happen. I even have prayed for it and yet now it is a bittersweet reality. My son shares his heart with someone else. She makes him happy. She asked me recently if she could buy him a Bible, which means she too is as interested in him as I am for similar reasons!
On one hand I want to say, “Stop! I am not ready for this!” On the other hand I am so smitten with this girl myself I cannot wait until he tells me that she is the one for whom I have been praying his whole life! She is beautiful and smart. She loves the Lord and is kind. She comes from a great family and is easy to talk to. They say that sons tend to marry women who remind them of their mothers. I am not sure this is true, but I suppose I would welcome any comparison to such an amazing girl as this one! I rejoice as I step aside and thank God for the blessing of ASR for my son!
