Family matters. Anthony Brandt once said: “Other things may change us, but we start and end with family.”
Recently I was talking with a young man who has been married about a year, and he said that his wife was having mother-in-law problems. Of course, that means the problems were with his mother, the future grandmother of his children. Not a good way to start off any marriage.
How would you describe a good mother-in-law? And what suggestions do you have for a mother-in-law about connecting with a son- or daughter-in-law in an especially meaningful way?
A friend told me about her family’s annual girls’ getaway—for Mom, her daughters, daughter-in-laws, and teenage granddaughters. Sounds like fun! Have you ever done this?
A family filled with love is such a blessing to grandchildren. May the words of 1 Corinthians 13:13 be true for your family and mine: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
