It takes a special son-in-law to be able to tell his mother-in-law face to face exactly how he feels. Well, truth be told, I’m not a special son-in-law. But, I do feel like you should know how I feel.
So, I have decided that I’ll just write a quick article about it.
I love you and I feel very fortunate that my wife has such a great mom. I feel even more lucky that my children have such an amazing “Grammy.” Both of my kids absolutely adore you.
What we as “son-in-laws” have trouble realizing, in our younger years, is that our wive’s mothers will never lose that title. Not just that title, but that relationship and bond. No matter what happens you will always be her mom. The same isn’t necessarily true for the son-in-law. That relationship, as husband, can be changed. It can be eliminated, so to speak. Heaven forbid that ever happens!
Some of us men take forever to grow up. I mean, some of us never do. But, we grow older. We start to realize how lucky we are for some of the things that we have had for a long time yet have taken for granted. In this instance, for me, that is you.
I love being here in Charlotte and in large part that is because of you.
Happy Birthday Janet and I hope you continue to have a great birthday!
P.S. My mother-in-law is hot.
P.P.S. No, I haven’t done anything wrong people. I know what you’re thinking!!
