Related By Chance, Family By Choice
Can a mother-in-law and her new daughter-in-law ever have the chance to get along and have a good relationship?Author Deb DeArmond tells us in her new book “Related By Chance, Family by Choice” that this is indeed possible.
Most of the conflicts experienced by both mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law stems from the mother’s strong love for her child. There’s a powerful bond between mother and son and it’s hard for the older woman to simply let the son go and be with his wife. She has been raising her child for a long time and now another woman will simply take him away from her. Unfortunately, whenever the older woman tries to reclaim her son, the more both the son and her wife goes further away from her.

Fortunately, both women don’t need to fight for this important man of their lives and work for a better relationship instead. In her book, DeArmond uses practical advice and help from the Bible which can help create a harmonious relationship between the two women. She cites the story of Ruth and Naomi whose relationship lasted even though Naomi’s son has already passed away. By constantly relying on one another, Ruth was able to find employment and another husband as well.
As a mother of three sons, DeArmond added both her personal and practical knowledge about building the relationship between the two women into the book. The book covers various subjects such as the perceptions of both women, how strained communication affects their relationship and even the roles of both sons and fathers in their lives.

They ended up at The Mad Potter, a local pottery store in Houston, Texas. Handmade gifts come more from the heart and truly hold a special meaning for mothers all over the world. Bill decided that a creation by Will would become the ultimate mother’s day surprise. At the pottery store, they chose a cute cupcake platter on which they would serve their sweet pastries. After painting the platter and most of his face and hair, Will was assisted in putting his hand prints on the dish. They also chose a travel mug to paint, as Jennifer is a coffee fanatic. This piece was also finished with the bright purple addition of little Will’s hand print. These personalized gifts were not only items that she could use, but lasting reminders of Jennifer’s first mother’s day.

Mother’s Day 2013, Mother’s Day Poems For You
Here is a great Mother’s Day 2013 poem for you to share with your mother on this special day.
Mother you are the light that shines on a sunless day
The special smell of cookies baking, making everything okay
The bandage on the skinned knee and kisses to ease the pain
The one who hugged away bad dreams, so I could sleep again

Mother you gave to me your heart and love, you never turned away
You believed and kept me on the path, when it was simpler to stray
You cheered me on and kept me strong, when it would have been easier to fail
Mother you showed me what it means to sacrifice and give more than you receive
Your life has taught me how to live and in what I can believe
You are my rock, my source of strength and the one who helped me grow
Mother your caring ways and tender words guide me each and every day
You taught me character is much more than words, but actions brave and true
I am the person you see today, because of everything you do
Mother when nighttime settles on the hills and everything is still
I hear your prays, see your face and all is warm and safe
You are the one who gave me life, gifts of hope and faith
All that I believe today and everything I have become
You are the one I have to thank for your amazing love
