For My Special Little Girl

If I could choose a daughter in law, I would never change you,

For our friendship and trust means more to me, than the early morning dew,

Which nurtures our grass to grow, and fills my eyes with joy

And clearly adds to my senses because you love my little boy.

If I could choose a daughter in law, she would fill my heart with pride,

Because through those big blue eyes of yours the world is open wide,

It is full of opportunity for you and me to share,

The special type of unity that only I can dare,

To ask you, my baby girl, to be my friend for life,

To cherish and respect you before you become my baby’s wife.

You gave me an angel to sit upon my lap,

To gaze into my loving eyes were the love for his nanny with always fill the gap

In this lonely woman’s heart whose spirit once ran wild and true

With love and endless wisdom I want to share with you

Pull up a seat sweet girl, a glass of wine we will toast

To a future with roses for who we love the most

Now you and I dear daughter, we have been our separate ways,

We have cried and shouted at each other, lashing out in pain

But no matter what the future holds, I love you more today

Than I could ever love any other daughter with nothing more to say

For you are so precious to me and least I should forget

That special day long ago, the day that we first met.

To my darling daughter in law, I love you baby girl.

The love of my life.

My beautiful grandson. He is the apple of his nannies eye.

Hi Ken,

You are one generous soul to step out of your life to be supportive of mine. I am the end of my maternal bloodline, and as you know, I know nothing of my true paternal bloodline. So I am one left and lonely pea in the pod. Then along came Craig my son and now Callum, my grandson. Without the two of them in my life I would be the last dying seed of the maternal family. I hope that my son does take after me in a little way, he truly is his fathers son, but if he can pass a little of my love for my fellow human on, I will be forever proud. Rebecca is a special girl and we have had our moments, but she is the daughter I never had and always will be. Thank you for all your words of wisdom and blessing to you dear heart.

This is the way it's supposed to be. A combination of loving families, understanding and sharing each others pride and joys, in this case your beautiful grandson. Your daughter in-law and son look like a handsome happy couple. I know you are proud of them both and the bond you have together is fantastic.

I share your happiness for you and wish you all what being a grandma brings, he is one lucky little boy to have you as his grandma for sure. Peace and blessings to you my friend.

OH My Goodness, I didn't expect to have so many fantastic writers comment of my little tribute to my daughter-in-law. Family is very important to me, and always worth the extra little bit of effort to make it work. Rebecca and I have had our moments in the past, but she is my girl as much as her own mums girl in my eyes. I am not afraid to say that I love her dearly. Thank you to everyone of you for your beautiful supporting comments. xx Much loive.

Beautiful n how lucky is your daughter-in-law. If everyone has a heart like yours world would have been at so much peace. And your grandson is cute and i must add lucky to have his momma and nannie love each other so much that he would learn to love and respect relations he will develop as he grows into a young man.

Annette,

This is the stuff of what life is made of! Oh my, you made me nostalgic for my dear MIL and I know we had natural ups & downs, for the love of our mutual "baby"!

Speaking of babies, what a heartbreaker! Thanks for sharing with us your reason to smile- he is infectious!

Voted UP & AB, mar.

Beautiful tribute to a beautiful daughter-in-law, and what a lovely baby! Or let me include your son and say, 'babies'. I relate, I love my daughter-in-law not to talk about her babies. Annette, you have a beautiful warm, loving heart. The people who have the privilege to enjoy your love, are fortunate.

This is wonderful. I am lucky that I knew my mother-in-law and she loved me before she passed away. Girls are always wondering if the man's parents will accept them. Your 'daughter' don't have to worry about that.

Oh you have one blessed daughter-in-law. How lovely to have a mother-in-law like you!

This is a beautiful hub - but not nearly as beautiful as your gorgeous grandson.
