We took my mother-in-law to the airport today to fly home, 800 miles away. So, not only did I tell her goodbye, but I also told a dear friend goodbye. I feel very blessed to have that kind of relationship with her because I know of some people who have the opposite kind of relationship. I’ve read about some who don’t get along at all. It’s the complete opposite for me. We had a great week talking in the mornings on the porch in our PJs while having coffee, going shopping on five different days, eating out, eating here at the house, having so much fun when our daughter “C,” s-i-l, & Baby J came for the weekend, and the list could go on and on. We had an awesome week!
Despite much encouragement from family members, my 86 year old m-i-l does NOT do email, but at least we can talk on the phone and send pictures through the mail. However…I will give her credit…she does get on the computer to check for pictures of Baby J every other day! I don’t know if I mentioned it or not, but Baby J is THE reason she flew to Texas so she could meet her great-grandson in person!! 🙂
