True Love Afghan

Mother-in-laws are often joked about. My mother-in-law, however, was the best! We were friends. She always complimented my cooking, saying that she always told her kids that charcoal was good for your teeth. That's when she would burn the food. Another compliment she gave me was the "True Love" afghan she gave me as a gift. Mom knew I love roses. It even has a red rose, my favorite. The best part, though, is the quote on the afghan.
Mom loved to get up early when the mornings were cool to "do her gratefuls" as she called it. She was grateful to God for all her children. I am honored to have been claimed as her "Special Daughter".
Mom, I miss you!
