My mom has been a window for five years now and has never been out on a date since my dad died. they were married for 33 wonderful years and she still misses him greatly.
mom is totally blind and has been since birth. my dad was visualy impaired. since he died, my mom sort of feels like half of a person. I think a part of this is because she’s blind and some people treat her like a fragile object. for this reason, she’s never been very comfortable in social events.
Anyway, there is this guy that was a friend of my father’s back in the 70’s. he’s a super nice guy and has never been married. he’s catholic and is in the NIghts of Columbus. he and my mom have been friends and since dad has died, she especially enjoys his company because he also has a vision problem. we are all in a group called “the national federation of the blind of Florida”. Andy (the guy I am talking about) is super shy and would never ask a woman out and of course, my mom would never ask a guy out. I think they would be perfect for eachother. Andy is very moral and so is my mom. a friend of ours aggress with me that they are a good match.
would it be taboo for me and my friend to try and fix them up on a date? is there some ediquate against it since he was close friends with my father? I have been praying for some nice man to come into my mom’s life. mostly to be her companion. not neccesearly for her to re-marry, but to take her out once in a while or bring her some flowers. you know, make her feel like a lady. although, I think if the two of them got to liking eachother, they would marry because neither one of them would want to do anything sinful.
so let me know your thoughts. would that be okay?
