Tribute to my MIL

Yesterday, October 1, 2008, was my Mother-in-Law's Birthday. If I was a really good daughter in law I would have blogged this yesterday, but hey - it is what it is. So back to my mother in law. Her name is Sharon and she ROCKS! You always hear stories of how difficult MIL's are, but I hit the jackpot with mine. First of all, I need to add her to my previous blog below because I can't believe I forgot to put her on it.

When I need to decorate ANYTHING...What would Sharon do?

Thanks to ValPal for unintentionally reminding me that Sharon was not on my list.

So my MIL is an amazing decorator and artist. She has more talent in her pinky finger than most people have in their whole body. She is caring, loving, giving, unselfish, funny, creative, artistic and I could just go on and on. She is genuinely just nice to the core. I know if I ever needed her for anything, she would be there for me in a heartbeat. Just as an example a few weeks ago I was cleaning my carpets and I could not get the machine to work. I called her and asked her if she could help me and she was at my house ready to fix and do whatever I needed her to within 10 minutes of my call.

Sharon has not had an easy life and for the last 20 years her health has not been great, but she just keeps on doing her best to be strong and faithful. I love her and am so thankful I am part of her family. She treats me like her own daughter and she is a great mother to me. I love her with all my heart and wish I could take away all of her pain. Her character is something I admire more than she knows and I send this tribute out to her as my way of telling her how much I love her and how much she means to me, even though I don't always show it.

I love you Sharon!
