Arlene.

And in life there is always the yin and yang...the good balanced with the bad, the joy balanced with the sadness. Today I went to the funeral for my dear friend's mother-in-law who was a lovely, warm, genuine woman. Arlene was the the glue that held her family together. According to my friend/sister Meredith, Arlene should have written a handbook on being a mother-in-law. Mer's husband, Jeff, gave the eulogy for his Mom and what hit me most was something like this...you have a Mom, and you just think that she is supposed to just always be there and always be wonderful. But, as he said, Mom's don't HAVE to be wonderful...some just are.

Hug your Mom.
