The Changing Face of Love

My mother in law and I had issues…

My mother-in-law died this week. We had a difficult relationship. When I married her youngest child at age 25, my own mother had already died. I very much wanted Irene to be my new mom, and worked on that project for at least 15 years. But it never happened. I never felt like she loved me. I had a hard time forgiving her for that.
