Happy Mother's Day ... Mother in Love 1

When I think of my Mother-in-Law, I instantly see her kitchen in Lawton. She poured over magazines for months looking for ideas, functionality, beauty..... and her kitchen is perfect.
 She is the perfect hostess. There is ALWAYS room for one more at her table and I don't think I have ever eaten a holiday meal at her house were there weren't "extra" family members and food to spare!
When ever I make a good meal... especially if it is completely from scratch, or one I have "invented" ..... I think of her and how she had inspired me to be a better cook.
 She is also craft like me... she is always sewing something, embellishing something or creating something to give as gifts for the next holiday! She is supper busy!  She and Pop are always out of town visiting someone who has lost a loved one, putting on a wedding, helping some one move... if there is a need... they will help!
She is the QUEEN of packages!  They were awesome to get when we lived in the states, you knew every holiday a box would come stuffed full of goodies for everyone in the family.  Now that we are overseas..... we relish every little item sent with even more enjoyment! I love my mother-in-love!
