Everybody Loves Mimi

You may be able to relate to one of the below quotes.
Me, not so much.

Adam was the luckiest man; he had no mother-in-law.

Just got back from a pleasure trip: I took my mother-in-law to the airport

If you have a mother-in-law with only one eye and she has it in the center of her forehead, don't keep her in the living room

I happened to be blessed with the WORLD'S GREATEST MOTHER-IN-LAW. Seriously. She is nothing like the M-in-L from Everybody Loves Raymond. Nothing.

Rather, she is the MOST loving, caring, fun, fabulous, witty, ROCKIN' Mother in Law.

We had a ball tonight celebrating this incredible woman's life at my sister in law Gayle's house. The grandkids were in hog heaven! From football, to jumping rope to Aunt Cindy's homemade baked fudge...yummo!

Mimi LOVES her grandkids in a way like no other grandmother I know. The sacrifices she makes for her children and grandchildren are unprecedented.

Thank you for being a 2nd Mom to me for the past 18 1/2 years. I simply cannot imagine my life without you in it.

Hoping one day my daughter in law's can feel about me the way I feel about you.
