A Mother-in-Law's Love...

This week, I've been busy with Spring Cleaning.  I wonder what it is about the warmer weather that makes us all want to clean.

My main focus has been the kitchen.  It's where I spend most of my time and it's also the place where stuff seems to accumulate most.  Books, school supplies, lost toys and almost every piece of paper we come in contact with ends up in my kitchen drawers.  The things I have found buried in those drawers.  (But all that is for another blog post.)  

While I was rearranging my dishes and cups, I found a few plates, bowls and coffee mugs that aren't mine.  They are my suegra's.  The more I moved things around, the more of my suegra's dishes I uncovered.  Pictured above are just a few of the things I had accumulated.

I'm usually pretty good about returning things to their rightful owners, so I was a little surprised to see how many dishes I had collected.

I couldn't figure out why I had so many of my suegra's dishes.

Then it hit me.

These are all of the dishes my suegra sent full of her hearty caldos (soups) and soothing tes (teas),  while Hubby and I were sick last month.

All I have to say is...God bless suegras!



  1. Your blessed with a great Mother-in-law as am I. I started sniffing around my wife's family when I was 15, my wife's mother fed me like she did her own sons, that means a lot to a 15 year old boy. When I was deciding about getting married, six years later, my friendship with my girlfriend's mom was a positive factor in my deciding to marry. 33 years later, she is still a good friend of mine.

  2. I wish I knew my suegra better and I get un poco celosa when i read about everyone being so close to theirs. My suegra lives in Mexico and she is a wonderful woman. I've only been to Mexico w/my husband around 3 or 4 times and that is all i know of her........that and what he tells me.
    My husband's suegra (my mom) is wonderful as well and treats him like her own! He's a lucky guy!

  3. That is very sweet! Suegritas can be a blessing or a curse (as can we I'm sure....lol). You're very lucky to have that blessed relationship. <3

  4. Cheers to that! We call my suegra Dr. Quinn because she has a remedy for whatever ails you ha ha. She is always there when you are sick to nurse you back to health.

  5. My suegra is awesome, too! We love to make fun of eachother :) It's how we bond.
