I came to terms relatively quickly about my feelings.
She got out of the car with a massive suitcase to give clothes to me, as a way to honor husband’s close friend.

I was beyond nervous to talk to her about my feelings. Nevertheless, we went to breakfast the next morning, and I told her how I felt. I did not use the “L” word (and would not for about 5–6 months for wisdom’s sake).
But I told her that I had developed strong feelings for her.

I realized this conversation was necessary after after a phone call that lasted late and was more than a few hours.
(Dudes if you have a “friendship” like this, it is time to address it.) We just happened to be in the same town several months later for a friend’s wedding. Was I majorly off and simply misinterpreting the development of our relationship?
My family prayed that she would be ministered to during her time on the trip.
