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.
