I never was a daughter-in-law. When I met Peter, both of his parents had passed away. Although some might consider me lucky, I feel like I missed out by not hearing what Peter was like as a child and while growing up. I have seen photos of his mother Hilda, and she was a beauty. I wish I had known her. I’d like to think that I would have been a good daughter-in-law, grateful to the woman responsible for bringing my husband into the world.
Now I am a mother-in-law, and I often hear tales of not-so-great daughters-in-law from some of my friends. But mine is a star.
I love my daughter-in-law. She is amazing. She is a great mom, an unbelievable wife, and a solid member of her community. She is my son’s best friend.
Once she told me that her friends think she is lucky to have a good mother-in-law.
I, too, am lucky
