A daughter-in-law cannot be perfect by herself. It takes the help of a persistent mother and a patient mother-in-law. My mother prepared me for the present. My mother-in-law set my course for the future. Together their yesterdays became my today and tomorrow. I’m blessed to have had both help me navigate through life.
