Musings From A Musical Mind

My Future Son-in-law…

img_17882  Okay I just had to write down a few thoughts about my future son-in-law, Drew – and how lucky we feel to have him join our family.

When anyone comes into your family – when your family has always been close and just “us four and no more” it is not easy to let someone from the outside come in to your world.  But I have to say that Drew is very different from any young man that I have ever known of his age – and he fit into our family quite easily and quickly.  His love for our daughter and for our whole family has stood the test of time and we have built a strong friendship with him – each one of us in the family.

Tonight Drew and I went on a date.  Just him and me – for a coffee and a movie.  We had a great time – great conversation and I gave him a letter that I had written for “my future son-in-law” 4 months before I even met him.  So the night had very special meaning for both of us – in that I was able to share with him my heart and how much he means to me – and yes – I did cry.  I just had to share it with all of you.  God is good to us – even when we don’t always feel like we deserve it – He takes care of us – He takes care of our kids – and it’s so much more than I could have ever asked for – and I’m so grateful and so blessed.

I will always remember this special evening with him.  I hope I will get many opportunities to be with him like tonight – no one else around – just us – so we can really “talk” and share what’s on our hearts.  My daughter is a lucky girl to have a man like Drew in her life.  And I know she knows it.

I have prayed for Drew since he was a little boy – years before I knew him – just like I am praying for the girl that Shawn will someday marry.  If you have children – I encourage you to do the same.

 

God Bless.
