My husband and I met when we were eighteen years old. Despite our youth, we were madly in love, so we decided to get married as soon as possible.
A year later, I became pregnant. When we told my mother-in-law about it, she was overjoyed and helped me with everything. I gave birth to a boy, who became the apple of his grandmother’s eye. Eight years passed, and suddenly I learned that I was expecting another child.Remembering the reaction of my mother-in-law when we announced the news last time, we decided to tell her immediately. However, this time, she didn’t react with the same joy. A baby girl joined our family. Fortunately, grandmother’s love awakened, and she never left her beloved granddaughter’s side.
Then, eight years later, I found myself pregnant again. This time, my husband and I decided not to inform my mother-in-law to avoid causing her unnecessary worry. Surprisingly, when she figured it out on her own, she greeted us warmly and expressed her happiness. Another girl joined our family. We were always close with my mother-in-law, and she was like a second mother to me.For her birthday, my husband and I decided to gift her a nice oven for the cottage. She had wanted one for a long time, but it never worked out. When we unfolded the present, my mother-in-law nearly cried and said, “It’s like you read my mind! I’ll bake pies for you tomorrow; we need to test the new oven.” As we were about to leave, she suddenly took me by the hand and led me to her room. She gave me two beautiful boxes. One contained a mink coat, and the other held a diamond ring.
I was almost speechless with surprise. She looked at me and said, “Allow me to express my gratitude for having such a wonderful daughter-in-law! I could only dream of someone like you.” I will never forget that day.
