Sharon’s Blog : A link to funny letter from MOB

Posted by Sharon O'Donnell on 2012/04/14 14:06:53

A fellow MOB, Elizabeth S., had a link on her Facebook page recently to a column a writer and mother of boys wrote to her imaginary future daughter-in-law. This writer’s sons are all pretty young, I think.  But she is thinking ahead as I’ve done in some of my writings, and yes — we do think about and worry about that old saying about when your daugher gets married, you gain a son BUT when your son gets married, you lose a son.  And “A daughter’s a daughter all of her life, but a son is a son until he takes a wife.”  Gag me with a spoon. As my two oldest sons (college and soon-to-be college) get older and move on with their  lives, I do indeed find myself thinking about these sayings a lot.

So I LOVE this. Please know that it’s all in fun.
