Another week, another memory

We drove up to the cemetery where hubby's mom is buried yesterday afternoon. It was a beautiful day, but chilly for our area at this time of year. 
My mother in law was one of the kindest, sweetest people that God ever put on this earth.  I never met her until after we were married, and I thought she might have issues with that, but her opinion was, if her son was happy with me, then she loved me for making him happy.  I only knew her for about 3 1/2 years, before she passed away at 65 years old. Never in that time did she ever speak a cross word to me, she was my buddy, my traveling companion, and my friend.   Neither of my daughters were born, before she passed away, so they never had the pleasure of meeting her.  But they both know what a great person she was, from what others have to say about her.  38 years later, I still miss her. Rest in Peace wonderful lady.  Everyone should have a mother or mother in law just like you.

  1. Anonymouse-How wonderful that you were able to experience the true love of a mothet through your MIL. I agree-everyone should have a mother figure like that in their life somewhere. The wonderful thing is that because of her you were able to be a better mother to your own children.

    38 years seems like yesterday, doesn't it? Hugs-Diana
