Best Mother in Law

she lived far away 
the phone to communicate
first question asked

always check weather
then how are you doing now
a happy response

want her back again
two weeks for pleasure visit
wished for us again

    Thank you for your kind worlds and remember that your poetry is by no means any less or better than others, we are all vessels of the Holy Spirit. Your poetry strikes a cord with me, so striking that cord with our works is what this is all about. God bless

    you are very fortunate to have one like this. Congrats in the contest. I just saw the response you gave me below on my first comment. I have one daughter in law and she seems to really like me. The key is to just act like a friend with them and not get into their business!
