On Being a MIL

My son got married on June 7th. I have been blogging at about the experience of being a MOG, or Mother of the Groom. That site will be pretty quiet now as I move into my new role of MIL, or Mother-In-Law. I have been blessed for nearly thirty years with a mother-in-law whom I admire and respect, and though my husband sadly had far fewer years with my mom (who was killed in a car accident when she was only 69), I know he felt the same way about her. Because I have had such a great role model, I am optimistic that Megan and I can grow to have the same great relationship, and that someday she will be proud to call me "mom."
