I'm sorry, ladies. Son M, in his thirtieth year, is finally "in a relationship". He has befriended, over many months, a beautiful citizen of Russia. Curiously, I knew how both of them felt towards each other before either of them knew it themselves -- but I kept mum. With both of them approaching the possibility of a relationship thoughtfully and prayerfully, it seemed painfully slow for some who watched. Let me know if you can tell me how to pronounce that surname.
