It’s Tuesday and time for Thankful Tuesday. Today I wanted to write about how thankful I am for my Mother-in-law. She is an amazing woman who is a great support to me. She always has time to talk if I need it and she gives me great ideas for so many things.
She helps mend my favourite clothes if (when) they break. She bakes me amazing bread so I don’t have to do it myself. She always thinks about all my allergies when she cooks food. So there is always something for me to eat.
She has raised the wonderful man I can proudly call my husband and I know that as a single parent raising three boys it can’t always have been easy. Especially when she herself hasn’t always been healthy.
I am lucky to have her as my mother-in-law. She cares about me and I know that some of my friends have a hard time with their mothers-in-law, but not me.
I still remember the first day I met her: It was in December 2006. My husband and I had been together for a couple of weeks and she invited me home to her to meet her. I was so nervous in the car on the way there. My husband just walked into the house when we got there and I was standing in the hall taking off my jacket and shoes and I heard her asking him if he came alone. My husband came out into the hall and dragged me into the kitchen. She was really nice and she had cooked a meal that I could eat. And I have gotten to know her over these last 12 years and I am so thankful to have her in my life.
So to wrap it all up. I am thankful to have my mother-in-law in my life.
