Occasionally, I join the Five Minute Friday community and write for 5 minutes flat on the one-word prompt given for that week. This week’s word: Nothing. Here we GO!
Nothing will keep me from loving her.
I’m a MIL – mother-in-law – now. And I’ve got a DIL – daughter-in-law – who’s not quite sure about me … whether I’m friend or foe; whether I can be trusted as a confidant … will I regard her critically or supportively. I’ve got my own brand of quirkiness, “interesting” attitudes, ways of doing things … and so does she. We approach life & politics & religion from different angles. She & I … we expect different things from our new relationship.
But, nothing will keep me from loving her.
We may annoy one another, inadvertently offend one another, misunderstand, miscommunicate & at least at first, mistrust.
But, I will love her.
Why? Because that’s what I’m called to do.
