MY MOTHER-IN-LAW My mother-in-law is a wonderful lady, So bright and so active, going on seventy-four, Still riding a snowmobile, she loves that white stuff, When the trails are all packed she heads out the door. Eleven snowmobile clubs she administrates, Though the paperwork can be a bore. She'd much rather be out on the trail And driving it daily at, oh, eighty-four. Her family's important - our matriarch is she. She looks after us all, in good times and bad, And runs hither and yon to lend us a hand. She listens without judgement, for this we are glad. By now you have guessed I admire this kind woman, She's always so chirpy, 'round the house she does hum, And she tends a fine garden, all colourful and shady. I love this dear lady - I just call her Mum. c ELR 2013

    this is such a nice tribute. It's the opposite with MY mom in law. She is so disliked she can't even get any of us or the grandkids to go visit her . Then again she lives very far from us all and there is just no incentive because of the way she acts.

    I'm always very sad when I hear that, Andrea. I am very, very lucky indeed - it's a good thing we get along so well, as she lives only 15 minutes away from us! Sometimes time proves to be a great healer - I hope that may apply to you and your family. Thanks again for visiting. All the best to you x
