Six of the finest young people on this planet happen to be our granddaughters. Margaret and I are blessed beyond measure.
In order of their arrival into our lives, they are Leah Carla, Jessica Mae, Abigail Rebecca, Erin Elizabeth, Darilyn Samantha, and JoAnne Lauren. They are as pretty and sweet as their names.
Sometimes, when I’m in the car with one of you, I will raise the question: “How do you choose a husband? What kind of man will you marry some day?”
Now is the time for you to be thinking of this. In fact, you should have been giving this thought for some time now. Leah, senior member of this sextet, is 25 and little sis JoAnne is the youngest at 16.
First, whom to avoid. Run from these types just as fast as you can, as far as you get…
1) Lazy. No matter if he’s charming and sweet-talks you and thinks you are the best thing ever (which you are!), do not be taken in by him. If he can’t hold a job and prefers to live off the earnings of others, marrying a bum like him would be a disaster. You will be the breadwinner for your entire married life. Marry a hard worker.
