If we speak about our mom-in-law we usually tell that she is the worst and never undefeated enemy we have found in this world without thinking how she is being a mother of our husband,being a wife and possibly being a grandama till we really know how she is as a person.There are cases in life that with mom-in-law we live in the same roof or just some visit in her own separate home for a while to see if she still breathing. We could witness how she spend her elderly or may be get involved in her personal life (marriage-life) until she becomes alone for the death of her husband and she may put under the care of her siblings (son). For ilness like other aged persons,those legs become tired,the body tends to be weak and such sharp memory she has begins to vanish.
While I was cleaning her huge and wide wanted house..hahaa and while i was polishing her woods antique furnitures,I can’t stop thinking “HOW BRIEF LIFE IS.” Sadness was hitting me imagining that she was present in her home for some times with me and saw her jealous of her things specially of her antiques furnitures and if she only knows I make an arrangement in her own home,move some furnitures, have a seat to her delicate chairs collection etc…she possibly kills me. Together with this thoughts of mine, I was telling to myself “ how old I will live in this cruel world and if I will be in the same health condition of her.” OMG,bad grass never dies! I remember how beautiful she was like a beauty queen and now she looks like a witch of the Epiphany day (doesn't exist in English folklore) and on the mirrow i was seeing myself the same reflection of her but i prefer that one when she was beautiful. She was an active woman and now still she seems to be filled of vitality.Inspite of her age,she never gets tired of talking and command others what to do though she can’t keep herself walking anymore. What a woman i can react feeling impressed… but can’t avoid to consider that in life your passion and your belongings can’t be brought in your death like those of my mom-in-law…we will leave all those human vanity and also the material world we are in habit with.She doesn’t even remember that she has all those in her beloved home sweet home where she passed most of her time caring her family and showing her obsession to antique things she has had.
Most cases in our marriage-life,it happens that majority of us flipina women can resist the presence of such undefeated enemy for the love of our husband. Maybe for jealousy mom-in—law shows
antipathy towards us that we took away from her,her son. For some time in our lives,do we ask ourselves if in case we will become a mom-in-law too? How could you be to your daughter-in-law?
For our moms-in-laws can we be proud of her rarely and so for some times we could leave the battlefield with such great warrior? But oh why always with mom-in-law and not with dad-in-law in the battlefield?
Hey you there................................
