First, a little background
My Fiance and I have been friends for YEARS… but when We started dating, and then quickly got engaged his mother (FMIL) didn’t take it so well. The beginning, and even up to the very near present has been VERY VERY rocky for us… or moreso for her & making it so for me.
Nevertheless, through lots of counsel with my own mom & prayer prayer prayer it seems she’s coming around (I know God’s going to give me the family I desire.. the WHOLE family)
She gives me a call earlier asking a question about getting something laminated (she knows I’ve started doing paper stuff) I asked her what the size was so I could check the price, and she said she was just going to bring it over so I could look at them.
It was MUCH to my surprise to see what she got us……..
Custom placemats for our Rehearsal Dinner…
10 different Scriptures, all on love, submiting, and what God can/is going to do in our lives
They even fit our 60s/70s vintage theme… & colors
I started to cry and gave her the BIGGEST hug!
If you would’ve told me that my Future Mother-In-Law would be giving me something like this I would’ve told you you were lying! lol
So here they are… or atleast one of them
Just wanted to share ladies….. this has TOTALLY TOTALLY blessed me!!!!!

I am still just overtaken by it!
It’s been really really rough for me & her over the last 1 1/2 years and me & my mom have literally been praying that she would just “love me” and it’s nice to start seeing it!!!!!!!
=D =D =D

Ohh I’m so glad to hear that! How did she react when you hugged her and cried?

@Evie19 she just hugged me back… She’s still pretty “broken” I guess you could say, and is more trying to deal and work it all out in her heart so it’s still pretty weird & akward but still NICE =)
I’ll take what I can get… b/c every little step forward just strengthens my faith!.. I want a WHOLE family that is just living in God’s blessing and is full of joy and seeing these steps just helps me hold on! =)
