As a mother of nine sons, I often think of the day they will leave me and become one with some other woman. A bond between a son and his mother is different than the one between a daughter and mother. My son’s instinctively protect me and care for me even when they are small. I don’t know if that is true for all mom’s and boys. But for me and my boys, we have a very close relationship even without talking. Now I love talking and visiting, and my boys are always good listeners, and when they do say something I listen too.
I truly have no idea where the wonderful women who will marry my boys will come from. I am not sure if there can possibly be any girl good enough for my boys. But seriously, I look forward to meeting the lady who catches my sons’ eye and heart.
But there are somethings I want that woman to know, so I decided to write her a letter:
Dear Future Daughter in Law,
I am so excited that my son has chosen you to share his life with. I have been praying for you since the day he was born. I pray that you love Yehovah God with all you are. I pray that you know the joy and blessing of walking close to Him. I pray that you are strong and humble in heart. I pray that you are prepared to be the perfect helper for my son. I pray that you can humbly follow where ever he is led. I pray that you and I will be close friends. I selfishly pray that you will live close by and come over often.
I want you to know that even though I am a mom of many children, I have room in my heart and life for you. I want you to know that even though I am loud, confident, and inquisitive, I am not judging you or condemning you. I am just curious and excited to be apart of your life. I want you to know that if you ask me for advice, I will gladly share it, and even if you don’t take it I will love and support you and my son. I want you to know that I am aware that a woman, like myself, can be intimidating to be around, but trust me, I have learned many things the hard way, and if I can share what I have learned with you and help you avoid the hard way, I am an open book. I want you to know that as long and you and my son seek after Truth with all your heart, I will be in your corner cheering you on, and if you lose your way, I will be there to pick you up and help you get back on the right path.
I don’t expect you to be perfect. I don’t expect you to be like me.
My greatest hope is that you will always be growing and learning each day, and that I can be a part of your journey.
Precious woman of God, I have prayed and prayed for you and I will always be here for you.
I can’t wait to meet you, and I pray you are safe in the arms of Yehovah today and everyday.
Your future mother in law
