“I entered the ballroom to tear down after the wedding. Josh’s mom was sitting there crying. I inquired as to what was wrong. “Josh and I have been so close since his father died. We do everything together. I feel like I have lost him forever.” She sobbed. I chose my words carefully, as I attempted to console her. ‘The best way to keep your son is to love his wife. If you love her, and are a good friend to her, you will not only keep your son, but you will gain a daughter.’ She pondered my words for a moment and replied. ‘You know, you are right. I love Gracie. I just hadn’t looked at it that way before. I think I’ll gather some of these flowers fom the tables and make a centerpiece for their breakfast table.’
The last time I saw this mom, she was enjoying her two grandchildren, and was as happy as could be. ”
