March 23rd was my mother-in-law’s birthday – 86 years old

To My Other Mother

You are the mother I received
The day I wed your son
And I just want to thank you, Mom
For the loving things you’ve done.
You’ve given me a gracious man
With whom I share my life
You are his lovely mother
And I his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head
And now I hold his hand
You raised in love a little boy
And then gave me the man.
