Being busy for last few days. Worked long hours for the last 2 working days, plus I am lacking of sleep lately. With it, I went to bed early to chase back time lost. (I know you can't really replaced the time lost, but at least I am trying to do myself good not to carry on too many sleeply nights)
On Thursday, Hubby ran out middle of night when received MIL phone called, told me his mom really sick and coughing really bad. He called an ambulance to sent her to hospital and he meet his mom there without delay anymore time.
MIL dignosed with Pneumonia, next day she was discharged and sent home with Antibiotic. Hubby came home in the morning looks exhausted. I let him sleep in and send boyboy to playschool and after 2 1/2 hours, pick him up and we went to Mall to kill sometime, so daddy can sleep in.
Called my MIL on her condition, still coughing,, and she trying to explained why she have no choice to called Hubby that day, on and on... I stop her trying to carry on her explaination, and to say my part, besides she is coughing when talking.. I told her, he is her son, he must do when parent need their children most, it's alright to call him whenever she need us, I have no issues with this. I am glad she thought of Hubby first (where she have 6 kids, all of them have family too), but I know she knows my husband her youngest son is someone who she can count on. I am proud of him, whereby, When my family need me, my husband is always there and fully supportive.
My relationship with MIL took sometime to grow, some sort of misundersting, , mostly it's me who do not understand the row I am playing. However, with her and my husband unconditional, unselfish love and patient for me, they move me and have make learn to love her as part of my family. Besides, I am an easygoing person, also I have my family(sisters and brothers) who think positive and leading me to right path have shorten my journey to learn it from hard way, thanks to them.
On top of this, after being a mother, I've learned why MIL behaved that way before---> just because she is a mother to my husband.
Indeed, I know she is not my real mother, there is no equal love between my own mom and MIL, yet I have no excuses or reasons not to love this lady who is always put her children/ in-law children first and she shown us with actions.
Our relationship doesn't take long to grow.
Now, I am setting an example to my belove son, to love and respect unconditionally.
