Counting My Blessings Day 4

Counting My Blessings Day 4


 
I am thankful for my Mother-in-law, Estela. She raised a wonderful son whom I love very much! She cares for my children. The kids love spending time with their grandma. When she visits, they all look forward to their trip to Hobby Lobby.

A few days ago she took them to McDonald's for an ice cream cone. My poor kids rarely get a McDonald's treat, I'm glad grandma takes them.

My MIL a month ago, called me and thanked me for homeschooling her grand-kids. She's very encouraging and often tells me what a wonderful job I'm doing with raising the children.
My husband loves to see his mother and I walking and talking, like tonight at Half Price Books. He thinks we're cute!
 
I love that my MIL does not spoil the children with toys and stuff but with her time. I appreciate that she takes them out when she visits from California. She does spoil them in her own way {like an ice cream}. She talks the kids about the Lord. She prays for them.
 
Thank you Lord, for a Mom-in-law who likes me ;) and loves the children.

  1. It's a real gift to be a mother-in-law. And I hope none of those "bad jokes" apply to me. But I have amazing daughters-in-law and sons-in-law. Wishing you well! Cathy

  4. Linda, what a blessing to have such a lovely and caring MIL. God is soooo good. It immediately reminded me of the biblical story of Ruth. What MIL wouldn't want someone so sweet for her son! I pray to be a good MIL one day, but more than that, that my boys would marry girls that will raise their kids to Christ, like you are doing with your own.

  5. What an amazing lady! It is wonderful that Our Lord knows who we need to minister and who we need to minister to us. Your dear MIL, does just that. She knows that Our Lord chose you for her son, and is content with allowing Him to guide her in how to treat you. You certainly have become her daughter!
