Things I love about my mother-in-law

She is a fabulous guest. She cleaned all the dishes, the whole weekend. (This is pretty much the way to my heart, in case you ever want to impress me).

She adores my husband.

She plays play dough for hours with my son.

She is kind to my parents.

She wears Dansko clogs.

She has had the courage to make an entire new life for herself in the past two years.

She drinks PG Tips tea with milk.

She likes my soup.

She likes my soup. That's great. So many won't ever give out that compliment.

She sounds like a wonderful woman and a person I would love too. I am so glad that you have such a positive relationship with her..of course, I think that you would be easy to love and adore.

This time of year it's easy to see the B side of our in-laws.

How refreshing to remember the good.

You're heart, Nora? It's grand.

I like PGTips with milk too! My MIL doesn't drink tea, but she thinks I'm a great mother/wife/person and TELLS me so! Amazing. Guess we both knew how to pick 'em.

My ex-husband and I had always manged to stay friendly after our divorce, but I always wanted to get back together with him, and he was never sure. So, I thought it was about time I MADE him sure! so i contacted Dr Ekaka from the ekakaspell@yahoo.com and a request for a specific love spell, and Ekaka powers began to work his magic. My spell is working because guess what: My “ex” is soon to be my husband again! This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you,Dr ekaka. Words are not enough.
