Today is my mother-in-laws birthday and I wanted to have a post just for her.
Happy Day today, Mom. We love you.
We miss you. We can't wait to see you for Christmas.
love my mother-in-law. We do not happen to fall into
the stereo-typical daughter-in-law vs. mother-in-law category, thank goodness.
I sometimes wish my mother was still alive, so Bill
could be as fortunate as me, to have such a good and kind
I have been able to see my mother-in-law in many different stages,
and learn to appreciate her in each and every one.
My husbands mother, first and foremost.
my kids grandmother.
The latter is my favorite.
I love watching my kids with her.
I love how they can love her through the miles that separate us most of the year,
when they see her, it's like she has been here all along. They pick right up where
they left off. Funny how, even Garrin, being so young, just snuggles right up to her
when he sees her.
I love watching her watch my kids - making sure she takes in every second she is with them,
as to not miss a thing, and to fill her full-up until we see her again.
I love watching her marvel in everything they do - swimming, soccer, school..
being the proud grandmother, all the while.
