I just got the nicest thank you card from a female friend of Soldier Son that stayed with us for a few days when our son was home on leave. I really enjoyed her company immensely while she was here. It was nice to have another woman around the house and she was a very artsy and interesting young woman. She said in the note that she enjoyed our morning chats over coffee and she even enjoyed losing Scrabble to me. Yes, I beat her AND Youngest Son (again).
Yesterday, I met a female friend of Middle Son J. He said that she told him “Your mom is hot.” A very lovely young lady, also.
Maybe I could have raised daughters. Or maybe my sons just know how to pick very observant and intelligent female friends.
