My Mother In Law Was A Taurus

My mother-in-law was a Taurus.
Thought she was the easiest person in the world to get along with.
Incorrectly thought.
People loved her. She was revered and adored.

Also feared and tiptoed around, for she needed her own way
Most of the time. She also stood up for the underdogs, 
And wanted others to have their own way too.
She was nurturing and loving when she liked you.

She had an eyebrow raise that could strike people dead
When she was displeased. I only saw it every day or so.
Usually directed to my father-in-law who was terrified each time.
None of us dared laugh.

A Taurus is an eclectic combination of 
Have-To-Have-My-Way, and Want-You-To-Have-Yours-too.
We never double crossed our Taurus.
She loved me to pieces, and I her, but I knew who was the boss.

Thank you Line. She taught me music classes Kindergarten through 9th grade, and she taught me Girls Glee in 10th grade. When I was a senior she built an entire new curriculum around my interests - Egyptology, Vocabulary, Art Appreciation, and Spanish. She dropped Spanish after 6 weeks because I was the only one in the class who NEVER caught on. (I was dating her son).

I am married to a Libra who was raised by a Taurus, close enough. My Taurus mother-in-law and I were very close.
