Meet my mother in law
her name is Barb
I know that some people have the dreaded
"mother in law" syndrome
but not me ~ I am truly blessed to have this woman in my life
Trevor says that he fails to exist when I am around
when she calls ~ she talks to me
we share stories ~ she fills me in on the family news
and she spoils me
I have attended her "gravy school" for the past 14 years and
I am pleased to say that I finally graduated last year
with beef gravy ~ I still have not perfected turkey gravy!
she is the person that I can drop berries, jars, sugar and certo off in the morning
and pick jam up after work ~ you see ~ spoiled!
knowing my love of all things vintage
especially if they have meaning ~ she offers things up to me
before she throws them out
she makes the best hot dog relish and shares her recipes
I am truly a lucky girl to have someone so special
welcome me into her family with open arms.
One thing that I will always be sad about however
is we were not able to give her any grandbabies
she would have been the perfect grandmother
and sometimes 4 legged babies just don't cut it!
Thanks for reading!
