Now You Might Understand Why....

.....I love my In Laws so much.

Pooldad, Wallene and I drove over to their new home today to help unpack a little more. My beloved MIL was there but Daddy O was out and about at a KOC function and wasn't expected for a few more hours.

We finished unpacking and placed all their lovely collectibles in their glass curios.

[Tadpoles?  They have some sweet pieces - delicate, old world pieces - I was a wreck at the end of it, afraid my hands would drop something.  She could not have cared - she was more worried about my pain than [then?] the china.]

We sat back to relax on the sofa when the phone rang.

Wallene picked it up and handed it to me and I asked my MIL if she would like me to answer it - we knew it was Daddy O.  She said sure, so I did.

Skippy:  "Hello?"

FIL:  "Hi Honey."

[I just about melted - because he thought I was my MIL. Awww he calls her honey! eek! Sweet! Oh and they have been married 55 years this month. Go Mom and Dad!]

Skippy:  "Hi Daddy!"

FIL:  Recognizing my voice ...."Oh I get to hear this lovely voice today do I?"

Skippy:  "Yep.  Hi Dad.  How are you?"

FIL:  "Even better now.  I am on my way home.  Tell your Momma I will be home shortly.  Love you."

Skippy:  "Love you too Dad."

Is it any wonder why?

That was a very sweet story! I could not have hand-picked a more perfect MIL than the one I had. When she passed away, I was heartbroken, but we'll see each other again one day!

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words! xxox

Your Daddy O looks like the sweetest thing! I am wondering whose is the baby he is holding? Is it Wallene? xxxooo

Great in-laws are a gift and a joy.

You are very lucky. I have no in-laws now - never met my husband's father as he died before I met my husband. His mother did not behave very lovingly toward me.

You are so blessed, and I'm insanely jealous.
