Quote of the Week: Mothers

This week's quote goes out to my mother-in-law, Tracy, who was kind enough to visit us this weekend. Due to snow and driving conditions, we missed each other this past holiday season, so a reunion was long overdue. Thanks to scheduling (a.k.a Husband Charles having a crazy weekend work assignment), the last few days have given us a chance to spend some quality time together. Brunching, early morning conversations on the couch, some shopping, some general hang time. All things I really enjoyed a ton - and I'm not even being sarcastic. Seriously!

I'm one of the very lucky women out there who gets along with her mother-in-law. After all the cliché things I've heard about mom-in-laws (and I can only assume that there's some truth to them because clichés do happen for a reason, people), it would seem that loving your in-law's is truly a rarity. So, it looks like I've found the holy grail of in-law-relationship-ness. (Yes, I'm using technical terminology here.)

She helps me think about life, puts things in perspective, makes me laugh, and lets me into her head and heart, which really is how friendships start. We're both ready and willing to share secrets, thoughts, and philosophies. In short, totally what I need.

Just wanted to give a quick shout-out to Tracy and celebrate her as a mother-in-law, friend, confidante, and wonderful person. (She's also a fantastic shopping partner, though her talent at getting me to purchase things makes my wallet cry a smidge - luckily, she talks me into practical purchases that I'll actually wear.) I'm thankful for having a solid relationship with her and hope we have many more quality hours together to talk about everything or nothing at all...whatever we see fit. I mean, we could also sit and watch a marathon of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. That's totally kosher too.

Cheers to great family relationships! xo!
