You can lead a daughter to water but you can’t make her drink. She has to do that for herself. Here is a story, a real life chick-flick moment, about a very clever loving beautiful and convivial mother of an unmarried adult daughter. Mother has asked to remain anonymous out of respect for her daughter’s privacy, and, curious as we may be, her name does not matter here because it is her spirit that counts. It is her willingness to follow a hunch that may be a guide for mothers who are wishing for a son-in-law.
Just listen to her story for the encouragement you may need to trust in true love surfacing where you may least expect it. She was on a trip to Europe to visit her daughter and early for their dinner date. Because of an earlier severe leg injury, she needed to sit. Threw herself on the mercy of a maître d’ of an elegant but not yet open restaurant. He let her sit at a table in the condition she would surrender for the people who reserved it. Agreed. The young men appeared and this mother saw something. Three cheers for being open to new friendships wherever they may appear.
