Mother’s Day, Part 1 of 3

To my Mother-in-law,

I have a lot of reasons to love you: you raised the Jellyman to be a fantastic husband and father, you accepted and befriended me from the beginning, you have placed a priority on keeping our family close-knit despite the geographical distance between us, and you like musicals.

But I have learned that the quickest way to any mother’s heart is through her children, and you love your grandchildren with an energy and a passion that would have won me over even if I didn’t already love you.  Watching you with them gives me a chance to see them with new eyes, to watch pieces of their personality and history – things that wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for you – take root and develop .

The Jellyman and I, I hope, will never stop being grateful that you are willing to fly across the country to roll around on the floor and read silly stories and have tea parties.  I promise you I will do everything I can to make sure our kids always appreciate it, too.

Happy Mother’s Day.
