Girls Write Out
Thursday, September 07, 2006
I was thinking this weekend how truly blessed I am. For years I heard the adage about when your daughter gets married, you gain a son but when your son gets married you lose one. Not this time. I gained a daughter, and my son still loves me. Dave and Donna had their first party at their new home this weekend. The kids have a great pool, and as you can see from the picture, I was about to see it up close and personal. LOL

I was screaming and pleading for my life, and my son took pity on me when he realized I hadn't brought a change of clothes. It was sooo fun though to see him and Donna so happy. He threw her in the pool and kissed her while they went in. Now that's love! And they're now trying for a baby, so everything is wonderful.

Hey, are you in the mood for a movie? Check out my website for a NovelTease video of my new book, FIRE DANCER, which ships to stores next week. It's awesome! I think you'll be impressed.

When I cried after some little boys pushed me in the pool, my mom consoled me by saying "they only do that because they like you." I'm sure the same is true of big boys--even sons! : ) I LOVED this picture!

The saying is:
A son is a son till he takes a wife,
But a daughter's a daughter for all of her life.

I don't believe it either. Our sons are stuck with us forever--whether they like it or not. :)

Oh my gosh, that picture says a thousand things, but most of all, I see that special bond between mother and son. I think that's the greatest thing on earth! when their daddy is a jerk, you can say, ah, but I got my TRUE love out of it. LOL I'm kidding of course, but there is something so special about my boys, and it's neat to see it continue into adulthood with you and Davey.

Ours stuck all right! LOL He didn't move out until he was 28. But the bond between a mother and son is special and always will be. The same as that special bond between a girl and her daddy.

A boy marries a girl like his mom and a daughter finds a man like her daddy.

Ane, so true so true. My husband is JUST like my dad. And, everyone says I'm just like my husband's mom. Too funny.

Colleen ... I see two problems with the promo video: 1) the book doesn't come out until October and I'm not known for being patient 2) it needs to be made into a movie now because I feel like I just saw a movie trailer and now I want both forms of media! ;)

Loving the preview video. I haven't read any of your books, but now I'm going to have to! (How on earth did I not figure out you were a mystery writer!?!?! It's by far my favorite genre.)

The MIL/DIL thing is such a delicate balance in some cases. I definitely have issues with my MIL and that's put a strain on her relationship with my husband.

Great novel "teaser"....! Natalie E.'s work is top-notch! I'm with Jaime: I want to read the book AND see the movie. does one go about getting a producer or director interested? (I honestly don't know how these things work.)

I love the picture. I have two sons (and four daughters) who are so sweet. It will be neat to see them all grow up, but I'm hoping that takes a LONG time. :)
Great teaser for the book.

I usually just read these blogs and never comment, but after reading this one I felt I had to!

Donna must truly appreciate your love for her and your ability to see her as a "gained" daughter and not a theif.

Speaking from experience, nothing is harder for a daughter-in-law than to feel that she is the "bad girl" who stole her mother-in-law's one and only son.

If we could only be so fortunate to have the support of a mother-in-law like you. The beauty of it is, because you're so supportive they will always want you as a part of their lives. Good Luck with the grandchildren! :)

Pinkbeargirl, I read your comment and I wish my one daughter-in-law would feel that way. I have bent backwards for her and I just don't win. It has cause hurt and hardship with my son and I, I think she just does not want me in his life. I once had a wonderful mother-in-law and I'm just trying to pay it forward. It is so hurtful when you are not wanted in your son's life.
