Read on for a very special Mother's Day tribute for the most amazing woman in my life: my mum-in-law!
If I ever had to put my mum and my mum-in-law together amidst unknown strangers, trust me — with just their basic behaviour towards me anyone would have them mixed up!
With mixed up, I mean that you would think my biological mum is my mum-in-law because she has always treated me with rules and strictness, plus she usually nags me about everything I do. I’m thankful my mum trained me for the worst-case scenarios of life but I’m also happy that I’ve been blessed with an angelic mother-in-law, knock on wood!
She treats me like her daughter
Before I got married, I was often told to ‘enjoy my mum’s house’ and the comfort zone I was in — because after marriage, mums-in-law will usually make you feel like you want to go back home.
However, I can say I’m blessed to prove that notion wrong. My mum-in-law has been my pillar most of the time — always supporting me even with the smallest mistakes I make.
She treats me more than she would a daughter and she never ever even complains if I treat myself to a few hours of extra sleep. She also pampers me every morning with a cup of tea.
She has comforted me during my migraine attacks and massaged me gently to sleep at times, while I cried in pain with my head on her lap.
