Tribute To My Mother In Law by Nobody: 11:19am On Jan 21, 2012
I remember the first day I met you. I heard so much about you "iron Lady" ways and I was scared shitless. I was shaking when I walked into ur home and met you sitting and gisting with your wonderful husband. I knelt down to greet you you said I shouldn't do that again as it made u feel "scandalous" lol, you proceeded to scold ur son for not washing his plates d last time he visited and casually invited me out for a day out at the spa. I was so scared den cos I felt I would be lost without ur son just me and u alone. Anyway we went out and you chatted endlessly making me feel comfortable and as if you had known me for ever.
You told me to be confortable and open with you as I was already a part of your family.
I remember how you stood firmly by us even when everyone questioned why you would let ur never been married son marry a divorcee. I remember how easily moved to tears I use to be till u shouted at me to toughen up or shape out.
Everyday I look at you and you inspire me, you have been a friend, Mother, shopping companion and sometimes gossip patner, you have always made me smile, lightened my load and bring out a lesson from every situation. You are kind, strong, determined, generous to a fault and so supportive.
Some pple write tributes when someone they loves dies but today as u add a year to ur wonderful accomplished life I say a big thank you. You have kept your extended family close, you are d glue dat holds us together, you have a wonderful way to deal with gossips and disagreements. CP God Bless you and keep you many more years, still beautiful, gracious and hot at 66. I love you

Nice. Wish her a happy birthday from us on Nairaland. I wish we could celebrate more mother in laws like her. Does she have another son for my sister. She has vowed to marry a Nigerian no matter how many non Nigerians I bring LOL
Re: Tribute To My Mother In Law by Nobody: 6:39pm On Jan 21, 2012
Freecocoa, no rush, enjoy ur single life and make urself d right person for d right man, don't settle for less dan u deserve in d name of getting married. You may kiss a lot of frogs but u will meet the right one and when u do u will love him perfectly even with his faults and he will love u with ur insecurities.
Jenny Love, happy bday in advance or arrears, sometimes u remind me of her, she can be quiet blunt and a no nonsense person.

@Poster
I fell in love with your MIL reading this for the understanding that she gave you through it all.
Our people sabi talk and it takes a sweet person to rise above all of that the way she did.
I hope that she was made to know about all these sweetness being said about her here.
It will add colours and spice up her life so don't hide it from her.

Thanks, my condolence, Sometimes I try to imagine life without my in law and I cant even think about it, she holds all of us together. She has been more than a mother to me. I trust her totally. Even among her own family she keeps her sisters and her brothers close and her husbands relatives too. She keeps the whole family strong and united. She calls everyone at least once a week, all her daughter in laws compete to be favorite. Lol
