I am lucky

I am lucky.

I am lucky to have in-laws that I truly love. They accepted me into their family from the very beginning and they are always there for a kind word and lots of laughs.

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. In addition to wishing her a exceptionally happy day, I want to share with my readers what an amazing person she is.
  • My mother-in-law raised three children mostly on her own
  • My mother-in-law survived some rocky times in her past
  • My mother-in-law is strong in her faith
  • My mother-in-law has a generous heart
  • My mother-in-law stood by her late husband's side as he suffered and eventually passed away from cancer
  • My mother-in-law never left my sister-in-law alone as she navigated through the darkest and most difficult time in her life.
  • My mother-in-law stepped up to the plate and became a caregiver for her eldest daughter when others chose to let her down.
  • My mother-in-law is an awesome grandma.
Happy birthday to Amelia's "Nina"! We love you so much. We know you are tired, but we also know you are stronger than you think. Not a day goes by where we forget what sacrifices you gave to all of us.

Never forget that we thank you.

Thank you, especially, for raising an incredible, smart, and trustworthy son. He is my life.

I am lucky.

You are incredibly lucky. My in laws are okay, but I certainly don't love them. I like them enough and they are fine grandparents, but there is something about them (or maybe me) that prevents us from being truly close.
I envy that kind of relationship. You blessed to have it!
Happy Birthday Nina!

Reading that gave me goosebumps. You are very lucky to have such a wonderful mother-in-law, but obviously you already know that. She is lucky to have you as a daughter-in-law too.
