THANKS FOR LOVING MY BOY

Happy Birthday Dana...You are the BEST!I think as parents we all want our kids to find that perfect person for them, to see them happily married and loving life. Personally, I would have enjoyed picking that person for both my kids...just being honest. Guess what? Greg never asked me to find that person. BUT HE DID FIND HER and she is ABSOLUTELY the person I would have chosen. I feel so blessed to call you my daughter-in-law. You are everything I would have ordered for MY BOY. You are one of the kindest people I know. I could make a list of a hundred things that you are and not one of them would be negative. You are an awesome Mom! You are beautiful! You are strong! You are caring! You are low maintenance if I have EVER seen it.
But MOST of all, you love MY BOY and that sure makes a Mom's Heart HAPPY.



In June, after a hard pregnancy and delivery, you made Greg happier than he has ever been. This picture captures Greg's feelings of being a DAD. (and look at that double chin...too cute and the outfit says CHICK MAGNET)

Awww. His hair is turning more and more blonde. What a cutie pie! I know that it's got to be a blessing to have a wonderful daughter in law. I hope her birthday is terrific.

Isn't that truly what we all want for our children, someone to love them unconditionally. Wow is Greg lucky to have found such a special lady and the other way around too! Blessings to you all!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

Just a little something from Judy said...

This is one of the sweetest tributes ever to a daughter-in-law. She has to feel so blessed to read words like yours from her mother-in-law. These pictures are precious! This little guy steals ones heart.

I bet you did pick her!!!

My mom use to tell me when i was young that she prayed that one day i would know the love and happiness she had and now with God's grace i do.

God heard your prays and i pray that he hears mine when i pray over my sons and ask that they one day be good men to good women and know the love that their father and i have.

Happy Birthday Dana!

Dana is one blessed girl to have a mother-in-law that loves her and appreciates her like you do! This was such a sweet post.

She is so pretty! And she and your son make beautiful babies...

Grandbabies are such blessings from the Lord aren't they?!?!?

Theresa-I know what you mean about this--I prayed that each of my children would find the mate God wanted for them and one that would make them all they were intended to be. Our daughter got married this past June, and our new SIL is all we could have hoped for and more. What a wonderful gift from you!

The Retired One said...

Oh, what cute pictures! Your daughter-in-law seems like one lucky mama!

Katie said...

Those are awesome words to your DIL. I've been praying for my daughter's future spouse (she's only 9 months old) for ten years now. I pray for his parents as they raise him. Mother in laws are important people.

Rebecca said...

Awww, what a nice post :)

Relyn said...

It is the same with my in-laws and I. I absolutely loved (and still love) Jeffrey with all my heart, but I think I would have married him for his family. What a blessing.
