When She Visits...

I'm a little lost.
I find myself forgetting other avenues of entertainment and things I can postpone. I fill my time with things like knitting and popcorn and laughing and crying, prayers and blessings, pictures and chocolate.
My Mother In Law.
I'm blessed with the best one in the world. Yup. I'M the one who has her.
She is witty and warm. Charming and useful.
She is why I have not updated my blog since *gasp* last Saturday!
She is the life of the party when she is here and the kids just spin around having fun with her.
I'm a lucky woman.
I'll be back tomorrow with a new card and post! Thanks for understanding chums!

I was going to tell you how lucky you are but luck isn't really the right word. More like blessed. You blessed, blessed woman. I envy you. In a good way! ;)

I'm so glad you have company, and someone else to love on your children! I feel the same way about my MIL. How long is she here? Are you bringing her to MOPS tomorrow?

Okay, I take it Spokane is a good thing (although I am bummed that means who knows when you and the babies will ever get to Florida!). But what does it mean exactly.....will you get to be together sooner? I hope so.

Glad you are having a marvelous time and even more than that, one of my favorite traits that you have, is you know how to 'value' those closest to you. Some people take those closest to them for granted. You appreciate. I love that about you Bev. Tell Nancy I said Hi! Hope she is well! Theresa

How blessed you are to have such a wonderful MIL. I lost my MIL 15 years ago to breast cancer she was only 59 my dd was only 2. She adored my dd and I wish she could be here to see her now at 17. Enjoy every minute that you can with this wonderful woman. Your children will never forget these times. TFS.

Your MIL is my idol! I do my best to be that kinda MIL.....of course I do enjoy teasing my SIL and watching his face go red! LOL I know that he does appreciate all that I do for them. Now I can't wait for Grandbabies! I however have been blessed with a 4 legged 80lb Grand-dog! LOL Have an excellent time and cherish these moments that you have!

I so terribly wish I could say that about my MIL. Whew, high maintenance...long winded....insensitive....I better stop before I go to far. Make sure your MIL knows how much you love her, I am sure she already knows!

Awww...Bev. That is soooo wonderful! I think that something like this is actually hard to come by, these days! I'm so happy for you to have this wonderful woman as your MIL!
