Mother's Day Series # 11 - Mother In Law

I am blessed to have a mother-in-law that I get along with very well. Of course it helps that she lives many thousand miles away from us. But seriously, we get along well and she's always been nice to me.

There are a lot of things that I don't do that I wish I do more for my mother in law. Like: 1) call her more often 2) write her and mail it snail mail kind (she loves to write, but does not want to learn how to e-mail) 3) encourage my kids to call and write more often 4) be on time in sending cards and gifts for special occassion (I am so bad at this. For this mother's day, I called in so late that there's no guarntee the flowers I ordered will be delivered on Sunday. She might get it Monday instead of Sunday because of my procrastination. Nevertheless, she loves me and I love her. Happy Mother's Day Mom! I know you don't read my blog but I want to wish you a Happy Mother's Day here just the same :)

Aw, I am so glad you have a good relationship with your Mother in Law. That is wonderful. I am also really bad about forgetting special dates and getting things out too late. I am a terrible gift giver. It is not my love language so I really stink at it. :( It is nice to see I am not the only one that is a bit imperfect in this area, lol! Have a great day! ((Hugs))

"I am blessed to have a mother-in-law that I get along with very well." Better than my own mother in fact. She lives just 20 minutes from me. "she's always been nice to me."
