    Hi,

    Do you know that you can share a unique and warm relationship with your

    dhs grandmother?

    When I got married- Dhs grandma -the mother hen and matriarch of the

    clan made sure that we were (brides family) comfortable and served as a

    bridge betn me and my mil too...

    She was modern in her views and very compassoinate too..

    What more-

    Even My mother cherishes the memories she shared with my grandfathers

    mother.

    That sweet old lady used to ask my mother to sit in a sofa right before my

    grandpa and grandma(moms ils)= considered bkasphemy and disrespectful

    during those days -1950s)" A dils legs are not made of wood" she declared

    the very first day itself and what more , she insisted her grandson and his

    new wife need their privacy and used to pack them off on vacations and

    to temples very often(unheard of in a joint family.)

    May be that is why she is fondly remembered by my mom even after 50

    yrs after her demise!

    What a broad minded lady in those days....she was?
    We really do need more of those kind of ladies now in the so called "modern society".

    Hey there..........Great thread!!!

    I do cherish this lovely relationship day in and out (TOUCHWOOD).My DH's granny stays with me.She loves me andmy DH very much and is sucha lovable lady.She is a retired hindi-pandit.A very warm and graceful person.

    Shes in her early 80's but talks our language and we have fun with her..Her way of looking at things are extremely broadminded and great :thumbsup:thumbsup

    When DH is not in town...she is my solace.I respecther freedom and never cut her short....while she tells her old story of D-days...
    She respects my freedom and advices me only if absolutely necessary.
    I can go on and on about her....but let me stop.

    I cannot thank the great god enough to have sent an angel - thats is my granny-in law.I feel blessed "N" times...THANKYOU GOD!!!!!!!! I pray for her good health and spirits....every moment.

    Thanx for the fbs, Adara and Aishu22.

    I think the chemistry betn the gmil and gdil is something fantastic bcoz

    the old lady now does not don the mantle of a formidable MIL

    but she plays the role of a doting grandma.
