saying goodbye to my mother-in-law.

July 11

on Wednesday July 6 my mother-in-law died. 

I would like to say that she was the best mother-in-law a woman could have.  She was not.   I never felt good enough in her eyes to be her son’s wife.  I felt as if she wished he was still married to his former wife.  (she confirmed that to be true during her last days. Why I had to ask that question I don’t know) 

I also asked if she thought I was a good wife to her son, she said “yes, I think that you were”   I believe that she did grow to love me, even if it was just because I have been around for 30 years. 

I helped to care for her in the last months when she could not stay alone.  I was with her in the last days when she was under hospice care at a nursing home.  She told my husband and my daughter that I had been very good to her.  She even told me she loved me a few times in the last months. 

We had some fun times.  I remembered them with her in her last week.  I did love and respect her.  I admired her. 

I will miss her. 

till we meet again Mam,   I love you.
