I LOVE MY MOTHER-IN-LAW
Recently my mother-in-law came to Florida for a visit. She is the proud mother of 4 kids and my husband Patrick is her baby. Yes she has a 6'1 baby boy. (SMILE)
(Let me stop for a minute so that we can all say in unison AWW!)
Our mother/daughter relationship has GROWN over the years. I am proud to say that we have worked extremely hard to get to where we are today. We are now Two people with a MUTUAL RESPECT for one another!
SO GRATEFUL THAT MY KIDS HAVE YOU AS A GRANDMOTHER......
As most of you know, I have been married to my husband Patrick for 21 years.
Through the years our mother/daughter relationship has not been PERFECT but there has been many PERFECT MOMENTS that I will treasure in my heart forever.
I LOVE HER BECAUSE SHE LOVES ME
SHE IS A GIFT FROM GOD
Being a writer and doing my blog, I receive a countless number of emails and letters from wives telling horror stories of their mother-in-laws. WOW! wish I could share them here, but they wanted to remain anonymous. I am thankful she raised such a wonderful son. I am here to tell you, Each relationship is unique and I understand that. But I truly believe that you get EXACTLY what you put into the relationship.
|SHE RAISED A WONDERFUL SON|
OK, So I am realistic and I understand that all mothers-in-laws are NOT mean and hurtful. There are some really good ones out there like my own. She is are great story teller, card player and joke teller. Makes me smile just thinking about her. (SMILE)
I tell everyone I know that I have the best mother-in-law in the world.
|THIS IS MY MOTHER IN LAW MYRTRICE|
She gives me cooking tips and cares for her grand-kids in such a loving way. Yes, people! It's possible to have a wonderful relationship with your mother-in-law. I feel so blessed by having a loving and nurturing Mother-in-law. She really is the best.
|MY SON PATRICK AND MY MOTHER-IN-LAW|
We didn't start out this great, but over the years she realized when her son Patrick fell in love and married me, ALL THINGS CHANGED. She realized that she had to share him and his love with somebody else. That person is ME! I joke a lot but in reality, She is my husband’s mother and for that reason alone, deserves to be honored. You may not like your mother-in-law all the time and she may be over-bearing when it comes to you and your kids, BUT She still deserves to be honored. Respectful behavior is not optional according to the Word of God.
|MY DAUGHTER LYRIC AND MY MOTHER-IN-LAW|
I love my Mother in Law because she loves me. Not because she had any ulterior motive or agenda concerning me. She really, truly and completely loves me JUST FOR ME. She loves me, because I love her son Patrick and because I take care of her son Patrick.
