I have started to realize that I am one of the lucky ones. I LOVE my mother-in-law (MIL)! And not just because I have to. I genuinely look forward to her visits, I enjoy talking to her on the phone, and I trust her with the care of my children. And while I’d like to attribute this loving and respectful bond to our mutually awesome personalities, I have to admit that my MIL and I put a lot of effort into creating a strong connection.
