Happy Mother's Day!
Wishing you a glorious Mother’s Day! I’m sure you’ll be like us, spending the day a little different than we have in years past, right?
Since many of us are celebrating Mom this weekend, I wanted to introduce you to my mother-in-law, Lucy. I met her 30 years ago on Mother’s Day 1991.
My husband Tim’s sister was about to be married on June 1st and he invited me to the wedding. I told him I would need to meet his family because I just couldn’t meet them at the wedding.
What would I wear? I didn’t want to make the wrong impression based on the type of dress I wore. So finally, after 8 months of dating, I got to meet his family. And in the end, I chose to wear a conservative dress for the wedding. Lol
Lucy is my mother-in-law. She is not your typical stereotype of a mother-in-law. She has included me in her family like I was one of her own children. She has made me so comfortable, that I can call with just about any question without feeling judged.
I remember the 1st time she invited me to go shopping with her and her daughters. I was elated, to say the least. Just to be included was such a surprise for me. We would go shopping at Junior House in Milwaukee, once or twice a year. I loved the fact you could actually buy bolts of material from their sales events.
Then when I had my son, Reid, her 2nd grandchild, she came to stay with me for 3 days. She was so supportive and helpful, she took care of the house while I learned to take care of a newborn. I can’t thank her enough for her wonderful compassion.
But the best part of her being my mother-in-law and the best grandparent is when my son was involved in summer baseball.
His team made it to the playoff tournament. It was a Saturday in July and the 1st round was to determine who would play in the final game for the championship.
They won that round and so I called my In-Laws that Reid was going to the championship game and it will start in about 3 hours.
Dave and Lucy drove 2-1/2 hours to come to watch their grandson not only play in the game but to win and be the 1st place winners in their tournament.
I am amazed at not only how involved they are but their willingness to do whatever to see their grandson without ever complaining or making a fuss.
I will always be so thankful for having them in my life and being apart of my family.
Lucy, I love you more than words can ever express.
Happy Mother’s Day to the best MIL anyone could ever have.
