My lovely friend, September, asked if I’d share a special post this week for RaisingGenerationsToday. I was both honored and thrilled to be asked, as this one has been on my heart and mind for some time now. For those of you have followed me here for a while, you’re aware of the long journey it’s been and continues to be with Mom.
This post is for her.
I didn’t always call her mom.
In the beginning she was simply his mother. So I referred to her as “Mrs. Jacobson” when we were first married and later, “Patricia” or “Pat”. Such an awkward dilemma, to know the proper way to address her.
After all, what do you call your mother-in-law?
Some years passed, however, and she and Dad moved in with us when I was expecting our fourth child. Dad’s heart wasn’t too strong and we thought it might be the best for both of them. Good for us too. Maybe not always easy, yet good.
But then I gave birth to our fifth child – a heart-wrenching and traumatic event – and that turned everything upside down for all of us….
Please join me over at RaisingGenerationsToday for the rest?
In His grace,
