This is my mom-in-law, Benna. I go by Becky, so that 's us - B & B.
She celebrated a birthday this week. Adam and I will get to celebrate with her this coming month when we go for a visit to MO.
Looking for a photo of the two of us, I realized that I don't have that many of the two of us. We need to correct that in our upcoming visit. She and I are usually the ones behind the camera. Much like me, we enjoy taking lots of photos of the people and places around us.
Benna is a wonderful mom. She is smart, caring, loving, and kind. I remember the first time that we took Henry for a visit, she loved him just like she would a grandkid. When he peed on the carpet, Adam and I freaked out. Not Benna. She just smiled and said, "its okay, its just carpet" with a warm smile.
She doesn't hassle Adam and I about when we might have children of the human variety - she just gently comments with a wink and a smile. I think she understands that we are on a different timeline, and that is okay. That means so much.
She can text. My own mom doesn't text so this is huge to me. I love getting her texts and being able to communicate during a busy days.
She reads and comments on my blog and I love that, too. It really means a lot to me.
She always makes the best meals. She is the reason I have a staple to take to dinner with friends and family - Company Potatoes. The recipe that changed my life (smile).
My mom-in-law is truly a wonderful MIL.
Happy belated birthday, Mom. We are excited to see y'all next month!!!
Thanks for dropping by :)
