many things, but most of all for my husband. I have good health, a good job, a loving family, a home, a car and many other wonderful things. But my husband is absolutely the cream of the crop. I’ve blabbered on enough about my mother and my situation with her so I won’t go any further into it here other than to tell you this one small story. The weekend before Thanksgiving I was supposed to go to my mother’s house just like most other weekends. But at the last minute I decided I wanted to be at home and to bring her to my house instead of me going to hers. So I called my husband and asked him if he minded my doing that. He said, “Bring her here, I certainly don’t mind”. Ok, that’s kind of him. But the real topper was when he called me back about 5 minutes later and as soon as I said hello, he said, “I want you to stop feeling guilty about your mother. After all, she’s my family, too.” I said, “Huh? Feeling guilty?” He said, “Yes. You feel guilty that she is intruding in our life. Well, stop. She is your mother and my mother-in-law, and together you and I will make this work. So stop feeling guilty because you think she is a burden to me. She isn’t. She’s family.”
You know, they just don’t come any better than that.
