A Day Late!


I’m a day late with this one due to almost having a nervous breakdown after deleting most of my school files. Files recovered....thank you Jesus! But, yesterday was my sweet mother-in-law’s birthday. So, Happy Late Birthday, Mrs. Kris! If you don’t know Mrs. Kris, then you are missing out! I have heard so many stories about people having TERRIBLE mother-in-laws. I cannot imagine that torture. I honestly consider Mrs. Kris one of my closest friends and a second mom. I always have a good time when we are together. Here we are pictured at the Brickyard 500 last year. (this is the only pic I have on my computer...I'll have to scan and add another.)

Mrs. Kris truly is one of the kindest, sweetest, most genuine, thoughtful and caring people I know, and I am so thankful that God chose her as my sweet second mom. She really makes you feel good about yourself, and that is a rare quality to possess. I remember the first time I met her. She came to Starkville right after Travis and I started dating. She ate supper with us at Abner’s, and from the moment I met her I felt so comfortable with her. I also thought, “dang, Travis sure has a cute mom!” He has a cute dad too, love you Pops! Mrs. Kris has given me a lot to live up to because she is a heck of a house cleaner...Travis had to come to grips early on with the fact that I couldn’t hold a candle to his mom in the tidy dept. She is also a wonderful grandmother to Maggie, and I know our human children will love her as well. We are still working on the grandmother name. She has so many wonderful qualities that I hope to live up to...but most importantly, she reared an amazing man whom I get to call my husband. Here’s to you, Mrs. Kris....Happy Birthday! Love you!

Laurette,
You are so sweet and such a wonderful addition to our family. I can't believe how "blessed" I am to have you as my daughter-in-law. Thanks for being you and for always making all of us feel so special! Love you lots, Kris

Lett - Can't wait for my b-day (don't forget) to see what kind words you have to say about me.
