    I struggle with that one also. Being an xtra sensitive
person, it's always been a struggle.

In-Laws

Saturday, February 18, 2012

I know a lot of people have issues with their in-laws, usually the mother-in-law. However, I am one of the luckiest people in the world. When they passed out mothers-in-law, I got the BEST!!! Same holds for my father-in-law - he, too, is the BEST!!! I couldn't love them anymore if I had been born to them.

I lost my mom shortly before I got engaged to my wonderful husband, so I was doubly lucky to gain a stupendous mother-in-law, who became my mom!! I am lucky enough to still have a great daddy...plus a great father-in-law as well.

Boy, how did I ever get so lucky?

    I also have the greatest mother-in-law. My late husbands Mom is 90 now but I'm still as close to her as I always was. Alan also has 6 brothers and sisters whom I'm still close to and they all love my new husband too. They are awesome. emoticon

    These are excellent questions! I'd like to hear your answers too.

1) Unscheduled free time - I usually walk my dog.
Scheduled free time - Call a friend and chat.

2) Yesterday I planned a b-day party for a new friend :) I LOVE parties!

3) I wish I could say it wasn't a material good that gives me pleasure, but it is. My Ipad. I can't live without it.

    I suppose my greatest possession in my 'life' & the Lord

    1. The sleepless nights are taking a toll on me - I feel like I don't have any energy and my "free time" is being wasted in front of the tv (and I usually doze off for at least part of it).

2. I organize birthday celebrations at work and the seasonal birthday boards regularly. Nothing big, but I like to think they brighten up someone's day! Hoping that I can start planning "baby shower" before too long : )

3. If children were possessions, they would be #1. But we have to let them grow and start their own lives, and hopefully find all that we have dreamed for them. I would have to say my computer/phone so I can stay in touch with them!

Great questions! Certainly ones to keep asking ourselves on a regular basis!

What kind of music do rabbits like?

They’re naturally inclined to hip-hop.
