I may be a newbie at being a MIL, but I’ve found inspiration in the example my own MIL, as well as in the example of a biblical MIL found in Naomi. I think you’ll agree there’s a LOT to aspire to and model for our adult children, encouraging them in our relationships with them.

  1. I’m grateful for the sunshine,
    I’m grateful for the mud.
    I’m grateful for the life that’s mine,
    although it’s drenched in blood.
    I’m grateful for the lovely dogs,
    though I wish their lives were longer,
    and I’m grateful for the neighbour’s Hogs
    whose music makes me stronger.
    I’m grateful for the cancer
    that opened up my eyes
    to the unexpected answer
    that dismay’s the devil’s lies.
    I’m grateful for the gal who loves me,
    and for God’s Grace, eternally.

    I am grateful for this year and God’s presence this year. I wouldn’t have been able to make it without Him.

  4. I’m grateful for family!
