Hi Dr. Laura!
I'm not intending this to be an email of the day or anything, but I thought I'd share something with you that you could suggest to listeners to help them strengthen their relationships with their mother-in-laws. My husband and I are very lucky - both of our mom's are sweet and adorable, so this is really no effort on my part... but, today is my husband's birthday, and I thought, wouldn't it be nice to send his Mom flowers? So I did, I ordered a "Congrats on your baby boy" bouquet with a note thanking her for giving birth to who would become my world one day. I think that acknowledging her importance and showing my appreciation for HER on his birthday will make her feel fabulous.
