i'm going to talk a little bit about my mother-in-law, shanna. she just had a birthday so i figured it was a good time to chat a little about her. shanna is one of those women...you know the type...meant to be a mom. her whole entire life revolves around her 12, yes 12, children. add to the mix 11 daughters/sons-in-law, and a bunch of grandkids. she is an amazing lady! she has more energy at 60ish than i have and i am far less then 60ish!!! seriously, this lady never slows down. dave's biological dad left when dave was about 10 and she raised 8 kids pretty much by herself. she is one of my heroes. not only did she raise these kids but she did a fabulous job.:) then she married a man (who is a sweetheart) that had 3 kids and then they had one together!! i know!!! she's giving and kind and sweet. plus she has a GREAT smile! one of those that you just love to see. she takes a lot of grief from us and still has a great sense of humor about all of it. we like to tease her because she lets us. she's a great grandma and the kids love her. so i just wanted to let you know what a great woman i have for a mil. i've spent a long time as one of her 'kids' and i'm glad that i married her son so i could have her as part of my family.:) love you lady.
