My mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer this week. She's an amazing lady—she teaches 6th grade! need I say more?—and she's beaten cancer before. So this week I though I'd list some things I love about her.
She has the best Christmas tree every year. Seriously, this lady's tree decor can't be beat. Hundreds of ornaments, one on every branch. Sparkling gold curlicues bursting out from every angle. Red poinsettias tucked into shadows. And to top it off, a glowing Snow White.
She can wrangle a classroom full of 11-year-olds. Identity crises? Onset of puberty? Nothing frightens this woman. And what's more, she actually teaches them things.
She LOVES Disney. Not only does her love of all things Disney appeal to my inner child (the one that wanted to be a Disney animator), she has a timeshare that she shares with all of us to spend a little time at The Happiest Place on Earth.
She's travel savvy. This lady knows how to plan a trip. From a Grand Western Tour of the United States to numerous trips to Europe, my mother-in-law not only knows how to get from here to there in style, she can plan it for a huge group of students and their parents to boot.
Do you guys have a mom-in-law or potential mom-in-law? Why not try listing some things you love about her. You just might like it.
