Happy Birthday to my Daughter-in-my Heart


Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter-in-my-heart!!
When my son married you we as a family got the best gift of a life time! Of all the things he has done that has made me proud of him...choosing you sweetheart, as his wife, tops the list!
I love that my grandchildren pick up books and settle into my lap for me to read to them...and I know it comes from a Mommy who reads to them daily! I love that they are fearless because you love them unconditionally! I know my son feels loved and valued because he has you by his side. My daughter and my other son have a real sister in you and know your love through your thoughtful nature.
Some say in-law but you are always, always in-my-heart!!!
I love you!
Happy Birthday!
Love, Ronda

This is lovely... I don't have any daughters in law.. but I have a step daughter and I feel this same way about her, as though she is my daughter.

I think you can tell when children are read to on a regular basis... they walk around the house with a book in their hand even before they can read. Wise mothers read to their children... She is obviously a wise mother.

OK, this just might be the sweetest daughter in law birthday wish I've ever read. What a wonderful addition to your family you gained!

Mandy said...

You remind me of my mother in law...she has always called me her Daughter In Love. :) It makes me feel special. This is so sweet.

What a beautiful daughter in law you have. Happy Birthday to her!

I once saw a saying about an adopted child... but I think it applies to any child we feel is(or would like to be) ours...

"You were not born under my heart, but in it."

I know you're lucky to have her... and I'm betting she knows how lucky she is to have you!

Angela said...

Wow that is so incredibly sweet! That is how my parents are with my husband and it means so much to both of us; however, my mother-in-law is an odd duck to put it nicely and doesn't have anything to do with our family. You are lucky to have her in your life and I hope she realizes how lucky she is too!

Susie said...

Lorina said...

I can't WAIT to have a DIL. No, wait!!! Yes I can. I just hope mine is as wonderful as yours!!! Can your son give lessons on what to look for?

What a wonderful sentiment from a mother in law. She has to feel so special that you feel this way! Lucky girl all the way around! Happy birthday to her!

What a beautiful post- I'm glad you have someone so special in your life.

Debbie said...

That just stopped me in my tracks. How wonderful for you and her. I hope I can love my DILs and SIL that much.

Rhonda said...

What a wonderful message to your daughter in-your-heart! It almost makes me wish I hadn't earned the 'black sheep' title from Leon's family!

And a great picture of her too!

I am working on Jill's friend's book now. You should have it in a couple weeks. I'm hoping your pay it forward will be in there. My original plan just doesn't seem to be working out!

LoLo said...

I must agree with everything you have said about her:) When I met Ryan I not only gained all of his wonderful family members but also their spouses and now their kids. I think it is something to truly treasure that we all are soo close and love each other so much that we are not just in laws, we are family and friends. I love you all so much!

Brenda said...

That is very sweet. How fortunate she is to have you as a mother in law. And how proud it makes us when our children choose well!

Karyn said...

She is defininetly a keeper! And I love the new hair color.

Rachel said...

Wow, I am truly touched by this. As I am sitting here crying, I wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful birthday wishes :) I am so blessed to have you in my life! Thank you for loving me like your own...that is the best gift you have ever given me. I love you and am blessed to be a part of the family :) Love you!!

blueviolet said...

That is so touching. I'm almost without words. She is one lucky lady to have you for a mother in law.

Jennifer said...

Happy Birthday to your wonderful daughter-in-law!!! I really hope my boys will find great girls like her when they're grown up!

I think I will go to both Blogher both nights--are you?

What a lovely beautiful post and tribute to someone so meanungful to your family. Thank you for sharing. I'm all teary-eyed after reading that :)

Happy WW!

Teri said...

That is so sweet! I love reading about your great relationship with all of your family.

Live.Love.Eat said...

I love how you love her. That is really sweet!!!!!! Thank you for coming by. DO tell me how that book is when you're done. Thanks!!!!

KatieZ said...

That was really beautiful! What a great way to put the whole "in-law" thing. I have step children, and we try really hard not to ever use the "step" word. We try to treat it like a swear word. SO..if you don't mind, I am going to use your way of putting it. This is a great post. BTW...happy birthday to her!

Brenda said...

Happy Happy Birthday R!

What a sweet post. You are both lucky to be in each other lives. Happy birthday to you d-i-l! Stopping by the the first time from Angie's blog. Hoping to stop by again when I have more time to read through your posts! btw.... you'll have to fight me for the HGTV Sonoma home. I want it!

Jeanne said...

I have a daughter-out-law and think she's just perfect for my daughter. It's a comforting feeling to know your child has chosen the right mate.

Kelly said...

Absolutely beautiful!! Your tribute and your daughter-in-law. I hope she has access to this!
