So I am looking into getting my soon to be mother-in-law something as a wedding gift. I know gifts for parents aren't a requirement, but her and I have a very close relationship and she has been a mother to me for the last 10 years. Needless to say, she has played an important role in my adult life. I know she would appreciate anything that I give her. She gets very emotional and I know on the wedding day she will be a happy mess! I found this poem that I would love to giver her:
You are the Mother I received
the day I wed your son.
And I just want to
thank you, Mom,
for the things that you have done.
You have given me a
with whom I share my life.
You are his lovely Mother
I his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head
and now I hold his
You raised in love a little boy
then gave to me a man.
I was thinking about having this embroidered onto a handkerchief as I know she will definitely need one on that day. But I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions or ideas on what else I can put this on. Thanks!
