For My Mother In Law

Submitted By: Alice Carman

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 gracious man with whom I share my life.
You are his lovely mother and I his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head and now I hold his hand.
You raised in love a little boy, then gave me a man.
