Happy Birthday to my Mother-In-Law!

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. I have to say that I am super lucky in the mother-in-law department. The two of us get along better than a real mother and daughter even could. We enjoy a lot of the same things and we enjoy each others company. We don't always agree, but we don't have a problem agreeing to disagree on some issues. She loves my kids and will do anything for them that she has the time to. She opened a hair salon a year and a half ago so that her daughter would have a job and that has taken a lot of her time. She is someone that I can always talk to, even about the tough stuff. I'm so thankful to have gotten a woman like her as my in-law. I've heard some people have a really hard with theirs and that's too bad. So, to my wonderful mother-in-law, and even more my really good friend - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

hey there,

thanks for the comment on my page. :) You and I could be the same person ..you said our kids were a lot alike and your relationship to your mom in law sounds identical to the one I had with my mom in law! I was shocked after having my daughter and sitting in a new mommy group listening to the other moms whine aobut how controlling their mom in laws were lol. I loved mine! she was a very good friend to me! She lived with us for several years when she got too sick to work and we took care of her, unfortunately she passed away 2 years ago and we really miss her. But it was great for my children to get to have grandma living with us and now they know she is their special "grandma angel" :) Happy Bday to your mom in law!

Happy birthday to your MIL! I love my MIL as well. I am closer to her than I even am to my own mom!

That's so sweet! I am blessed with a super MIL too. I don't know what I would do without her, and I always feel so sorry for people who have horrible in-law stories and experiences.
