Am I crazy? I love my mother-in-law (MIL). I refer to her as my "mom" and sometimes refer to my actual mother as my "biological mother." And I know my MIL feels the same way about me. She calls me "daughter" and loves me madly. And my mother is crazy about Air and treats him like a son. In fact, I'm pretty sure she likes him better that she likes me.

I had lunch with two of my friends yesterday, and I absolutely cannot believe what their MIL's do to them. They are not treated well at all! Their MIL's have very close relationships with their own daughters and don't believe their daughters-in-law (DIL) deserve the same treatment. Now, knowing these two ladies, if it were me, I wouldn't want to be best friends with them like their daughters are. But that's just me.

I think what I have that they don't have is the ability to speak up and tell my MIL what on my mind. I also don't leave the relationship to her son. I make myself part of her life and her love.

It doesn't hurt that my MIL is an absolute Tzadeket who is sensitive to others and is welcoming and open and friendly and very, very special.

You better be careful. She doesn't always like reading about herself on this blog.
