We lived with my mom-in-law for the 1st 7 years of our marriage. When we decided to live on our own, my generous MIL offered to send us food everyday. Something that was to be a unique set-up for the next 7 years. Friends and relatives from my side who knew about it would say I was lucky. Hehehe… It was no secret, as far as I’m concerned. And I only have Mommy to thank for. She really doted on us.
Though it was and still is very much appreciated, we finally advised the cook to stop sending us food. I think it came as a surprise to her who’s been doing it routinely everyday. My MIL probably doesn’t know about this and would have wanted to continue the supply. However, we felt it was too much of a burden now not just for her (she’s not feeling too well due to Parkinson’s) but for the other members of the family too.
Well as the song goes, some good things never last.
On another note, my boys are always looking forward to going home from school nowadays. Next thing they’d say after the customary kiss and greeting is: “What’s for dinner?”.
