I have a wonderful mother in law. We are very different. I am black, she is white. I grew up in Africa, she grew up in Alabama. She is petite, I am tall. My mother died when I was ten. But my mother in law has always taken care of me as if I were hers.
When I was on hospital bed rest, she came to New York and hired a cleaner to help with chores. A few days ago, I underwent surgery and my mother in law was there to take care of Miya.
If you have a great mother in law...let her know. The alternative is awful!
