The Story Behind Today’s Gift
She’s engaged to a wonderful man! But unfortunately, her little boy does not approve. He’s 5 years old and he wants his mom and “real” dad to be a family again. She’s doing her best to teach him that families and households change sometimes; but that doesn’t mean we have to lose the people we love. This little boy is loved by so many people! He is loved by his mom and dad, and by his almost-stepdad too. Love is growing, not contracting. That’s a lot for a little boy to understand, but she’s hopeful that he’ll feel more comfortable soon. Far more aggravating, is the fact that her fiance’s mother is also not a fan of their relationship. She’s not ready to lose her 30 year old son to another woman. It’s one thing to explain change to a child. It’s another thing altogether to convince a stubborn adult to accept change gracefully.
Her own mom loves her to the moon and back! She thinks her fiance is a great guy and she totally supports them as a couple. Her heart goes out to the little guy, but she’s totally confident that her daughter is raising him appropriately. Her daughter is a strong and capable woman. She has no doubt that her daughter will do well in life. As for that other mother…. well…. we don’t always get to chose our relatives.
