A Mom of 3 Boys Writes a Powerful Letter to Her Future Daughters-in-Law
Life shows us that relationships between mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law come in all shades, from love and friendship to rivalry and quarrels. When Rachael Boley, a mother of 3 little boys, posted a moving letter to her future daughters-in-law in her blog, she got a heartfelt response from many women.
Here is a part of the letter.
“To my future daughters-in-law,
I don’t know you yet, but already, I love you. I love you so much because someday, you will love my son. And he will return that love.
There will come a day that this sticky, messy, silly little boy will be yours. He will always be mine, but you will take my place in many ways.
Someday your hand will replace mine. Your eyes will be his peace and your heart will be his home.
It’ll be you he kisses goodnight.
It’ll be you he shares his dreams with.
It’ll be you who comforts him when he is scared.
It’ll be you who holds his heart. The same heart that beats against my chest as I hold him each night.
Someday darling, that will be you.
I always thought I would have a daughter. Now I know that’s you. I want you to know I pray for you every day, just as I pray for my sons.”
