Me: "Well. I guess I just got older and so that made me a grown-up. Then after I met Daddy, we loved each other and got married."
***Hoping very much that the questions don't get too in-depth at this point. No need in mentioning Daddy's wrangler jeans played a large role or that I was far from being a grown-up when I got married.
Samuel: "Well, how will I meet someone to marry?"
Me: "Well, when you grow-up and become a man, you can pray to God that He will help you meet a girl who loves Jesus and wants to be your wife."
Samuel: "Well, like, what about if I marry Ellerie and then there already other people living in that house?"
Me: "Well son, if you get married, you have your own house."
Samuel: "Well ya know... my wife ... I get to be the boss of her!"
Samuel then takes on a look of fret and concern. He is obviously weighing all this information and trying to make sense of it. After much deliberation and serious contemplation, he takes a deep breath and sighs real big ...
Samuel: "Momma. It's gonna be real hard to find me a woman."
I knowingly nod my head. I say a prayer for that little girl who will one day become that woman ... who will be hard to find.
"An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels."
