Darla Olson My Mother-In-Law

Wednesday was my mother-in-law's birthday.
Most of you know that after my accident in 2006 she and my father-in-law moved in with us. Now it's just Darla, Cheri, and myself. She has sacrificed a lot so that I can have the freedom of living at home. Darla does 99% of the cooking and much of my daytime care giving. Even though she has been in the workforce longer enough to retire, she still does "work from home" accounting for a local car dealership. I know that I am in good hands because I can see that God has his signature on my lifestyle here at home. Sometimes I know that my mother-in-law gets tired of saying "you're welcome", but when you have been blessed as much as I have it's hard not to say "Thank You".

The way that the puzzle of my life has been carefully crafted is sometimes almost unbelievable. There are too many things that have happened in the last 7+ years that coincidence could not be a factor. Thank you to my mother-in-law for all that she does.

Cheri, said to her husband, Dennis, when he returned from work, 'I have great news for you. Pretty soon there are going to be three in this house instead of two.'
Dennis started glowing with happiness and kissing Cheri , 'Oh darling, I'm the happiest man in the world.'
Cheri smiled and added, 'I'm glad that you feel that way, Dennis, because tomorrow morning my mother moves in with us.'

It is just a joke, I love you Darla and a Very Happy Birthday to you.

Much love, Dennis
