The Need That Is Not Spoken Of Part 1 of 2

You know, this blog post reminded me of something my mother in law tried as a joke several years ago.

We picked her up and she flashed a large ring.  "I met a rich man"  she said "and he just proposed marriage to me."

"That's great!"  I exclaimed. (I was in the car, along with my husband, and Bil.)  After all my mil has been a widow for over 10 years now.  She would make a lovely wife to the right man - someone who would love and cherish her, and help her with her increasing physical frailness. But I never thought "it" would happen.

It hadn't.  It was a joke.

But what was really interesting was the way Bil reacted.  And it got me to thinking...which I will blog about more tomorrow.
