Your biggest concern
In fact, the infatuated mother’s biggest concern was how her family would fare after she left. It was totally understandable from a mom, but it’s very difficult to prepare for it.
So she wanted David to be happy with someone else after his death; she even actively encouraged him to look for another woman. Sounds crazy, but what better proof of love than to encourage the man in her life to find someone else to spend the rest of his life with because soon she won’t be able to contribute anymore? Her approval was a testament to her sincerity and how happy she wanted her family to be when she was gone. It also shows that she was a very beautiful person.
