Azalea in my mother-in-law's yard
A is for AZALEA and ADOPTED
Hi, all. I'm back from a difficult few days in Upstate New York where my mother-in-law - a very lovely lady - just passed away.
You know all those bad jokes and stories about mothers-in-law? That wasn't my husband's mother the jokes were talking about. My mother-in-law treated me like one of her own kids. In fact, I was called the ADOPTED daughter.
While we were saying our last good-byes, this lovely azalea bloomed in her side yard.

oh, i am so sorry for your loss. and so glad for your love of her - and her of you.
I was worried that something was wrong in your life. I am so sorry for your loss, EG. My thoughts are with you and your husband. The azalea knew you needed a lift.
I am very sorry for your loss. Very pretty flower.
So very sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry for your loss but glad the two of you had such a strong and loving relationship. Perhaps that azalea was helping her to say 'farewell, and Fare Well'.
Sorry for your loss. Nice to hear that you had such a good relationship with her.
My condolences on her passing.
My heartfelt sympathy to you and your husband. I am so very sorry.
Oh I am so sorry Cameragirl. They are beautiful.I am glad you had a wonderful relationship that means a lot. HUGS B
I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your mother-in-law. It sounds as if she was a wonderful woman. I love the color of your azalea.
People and pets passing is so sad, sorry for you and your husbands loss, I love this shot of the azalea, it is beautiful.
I keep forgetting the name of this flower, thanks for the reminder.
isn't such a joy to see the azalea bloom just as you were saying goodbye? I think it's a reminder how wonderful the world can still be.
hope you have a sweet day.
Truly sorry for your loss!
Great capture for the day!
Gorgeous photo of one of nature's gems ~ Enjoy ^_^

I'm so sorry for your loss EG! I'm so happy too that you had a wonderful relationship with your mother-in-law.
My deepest condolences at the passing of such a special person in your life. Our Azalea have come and gone, but they were quite lovely while in bloom.
A beautiful flower which will always remind you of your mother in law.
great you had such a good relationship. Cherish it.
I have a great M-I-L, too
I am sorry for your loss. I had a great MIL too, until my marriage failed and they took his side! Luckily I've reconnected with my sister-in-law since my ex's passing.
The azalea is beautiful.

I'm so sorry for your loss! It sounds like you had a great relationship. Very special! The azaleas are gorgeous too!
so sad news, sorry for your loss. I'm sending love and lights to your heart!
So sorry for your loss. My in laws adopted me also. My father in law is gone but my mother in law is still around and very much part of our lives.
My condolences also. You were fortunate to have had a great relationship with your MIL. I did also, and when she died it was difficult for she was very much a "mom" to me.
It is nice, though, that you have this beautiful azalea photo to remind you of her love!
Yes, you are right...I am sure it was a difficult last few days. So very hard to lose love ones...it just breaks the heart. Blessings to you and your family during this difficult time.
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. What a beautiful flower to bring cheer.
oh I am so sorry! No words can really help, either but you know that we'll all have you in our hearts right now...
I'm so sorry for your loss. It's great that you had such a wonderful relationship with her.
She sounds like a wonderful mother-in-law, and I am sorry for your loss.
So sorry for your loss.
I can soooo relate to this! My MIL was loving and giving. She once told me that I WAS a daughter to her, as much as the ones to whom she gave birth.
My yard is filled with azaleas right now. I even have some that bloom from spring until winter.
Thanks for your comment on my post. I just love being a gadfly!!
Sure I've heard abut that bad jokes, I never have understood them, really.. I've been wondering if men are worst to complain on their mothers-in-law?? I might be wrong. My man does not complain, he is proud of my mum.
May the Holy Spirit be a comfort and a guide during this time of loss....Lovely Azaleas...My new Website: http://lauriekazmierczak.com/abstract/
Sorry for your loss! I share your feelings - my mil was wonderful, too. It's a blessing to marry and get a nice "second mom."
Oh I'm so sorry. She must've loved you very much to treat you as one of her own.
Esta azálea tem uma cor lindíssima.
As suas flores são um encanto.
I am truly so very sorry.
I too had the most wonderful in-laws, who treated me like their own.
May your wonderful memories of her bring you comfort.
I am so sorry for your loss. How lovely that she referred to you as her adopted daughter.
Her Azaleas are stunning!
Sending my deepest condolences, warmest prayers and biggest (((HUGS)))
So very sorry for your loss. Glad you have great memories of her :)
I'm sorry to hear about your loss. You were very fortunate to have such a special mother-in-law. Beautiful picture too!
You were certainly blessed to have such a loving mother-in-law. How sweet that the azalea bloomed at that time.
I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet mother-in-law. Looks like I missed a lot while I was gone. :(
That is amazing that such an absolutely beautiful azalea bloomed.
Your Mother-in-law sounds like an amazing woman.
I am so sorry for your families loss.
