M*I*L= Mother in Law. How is it with you? You may not have one yet, or maybe never will, you may not be one yet, but let me assure you kingdoms are won and lost over these three words.
Yes.Yes,yes and yes....
You do not have ownership of any previous station in life when you become an in-law.
Sometimes you wonder what would be the future of this relationship. Most of the time, you will feel this is great for my child and I can put up with some quirks; as I am sure the in-law will say of the other side of the family!
It is all about personnel management. Remember that old term? When you want something done, get it done through people. Praise them, support them, guide them, give them good in-service education programs, exhibit with your actions how you want the tone to be in your management circle. In-laws are people, they respond to the tactics of good management and will not realize what is actually happening. This is kinda fun.
I really like my SIL; I am hoping he keeps my daughter as the only center of his life. They can flourish as a team as long as both M*I*L (and the cadre et al of other family ) let them alone to seek their own level.
Anyhow back to summarize my musings for today:
Mind your own business...that is the biggest and best challenge you can take on!
Pray for Michele; she is in surgery today in Orlando, FL. Things will forever be different, but she is loved...
Prince William is just fine and dandy.....
Til next time
