Son-in-law writes a touching letter to his his mother-in-law after accidentally seeing her cry in the kitchen by herself
Everyone knows that the mother-in-law is an essential part of every family. It may be true that mothers-in-law know how to treat their grandchildren well - showering them with lots of love, gifts, and affection - these women often get a bad wrap when it comes to their relationship with their children's spouse. This doesn't mean that every mother-in-law treats their daughters or sons-in-law badly. Some treat their children's spouses as if they were their own children. In these cases, most spouses wouldn't know what they would do without their mother-in-law. One son-in-law in particular loves and appreciates him mother-in-law so much that he decided to express how he felt in a hand written letter.
Bryan's mother-in-law moved in with his family after his wife, his mother-in-law's daughter - found out she had leukemia and had a 10% chance of surviving. His mother-in-law has been with them every step of the way and has shown strength when no one else could muster any. Bryan didn't realize, however, the toll his wife's condition was taking on his mother-in-law's emotional health until he accidentally walked in on her in the kitchen crying. That's when Bryan decided to dedicate to a letter to her to show how much he loved and appreciated her. This is what the letter said:
"This is Sharon, my mother-in-law. She has taught me that it's importnt to work hard in order to see someone for who they really are and not just how they appear. When I met her the first time, I had difficulty understanding her. After 7 years of knowing her, I realize I still don't really know her. When my wife was 30 years old, she was diagnosed with leukemia and told that she only had a 10% chance of surviving. When our world was turned upside down, Sharon came to live with us and became a silent but firm rock for us to depend on.
She moved in with us while her husband stayed in Vietnam, where he works as a veterinarian. She not only lived with us, but became my wife's caretaker. In the midst of all this chaos, she also discovered that she had cancer. And despite this, she continued to take care of us. She took care of us even after she had her masectomy. Even while she was going through chemotherapy. I took this photo of her one day while I was leaving for work. I didn't know she was there. This, my friends, is what greatness looks like in a quiet moment. She lost all her hair due to chemotherapy. Yet, she refused to stop taking care of all of us at home.
Not everyone is lucky to have a superhero in the real world or in their personal lives. This is why I am filled with gratitude every single day. True heroes don't wear capes. Sometimes they wear a bath robe while their in the kitchen getting oatmeal ready for breakfast."
