When my sister Kate started seeing Phil, she had so many reservations. Kate had been burnt before and was always unsure about emotional investment. Not only was Phil new to her, but as a widower, he had a lot of his own issues, including children with THEIR own reservations.
But Kate knew that there was something special with her relationship with Phil and she plunged ahead. She became a mother figure to the boys and found stability in Phil. I was not surprised when she said she and Phil were engaged, though I WAS surprised about how quickly she wanted to tie the knot! Her movement steadied when given some thought, and when we came out for her “engagement” party, I was blessed to spend some time with Phil, Kate and the boys to capture the moment.
