My Mother-in-Law

This is my sweet, precious mother in law. Well, we are no longer legally related, but, to me, she will ALWAYS be my mother in love....she has shown me more love than I could have ever expected and my heart has been broken over not seeing her anymore. She also had a stroke earlier this year and not getting around very well. She had one 21 years ago and it changed the bubbly, energetic, fun-loving woman I first met.

We were able to work a visit in with her this weekend and was able to capture these moments......I. LOVE. THEM. She is such a courageous, loving woman. These are the hands that taught me how to make biscuits without a recipe, dressing-the old fashioned way :) and came to help me with each one of my 9 children.

Leota Eloise Dodson.....I love that name and love the woman.
