Where I Take My Mother-In-Law On Mother's Day


It’s always been her favourite place to spend her spare time.

It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday again so I thought about taking my mother-in-law to an especially nice place on that equally special day. There is a lake called the “Lister”. It’s about a half hour drive from where we live. My mother-in-law has always loved this lake. Her parents took her there when she was a child and she learned to swim in this lake when she was little. (Hard for me to believe that young parents these days take their child to the swimming pool once or twice a week and after a number of weeks the child is supposed to swim – or not).

She spent hours having fun there when she was a young girl and when she got married and had three boys, they still spent their weekends at this lake. Her husband and the boys went fishing at the Lister and she always joined them .

Now the boys are grownup and one of them takes me to the lake every now and then. I must say it is one beautiful place! It is just so pretty, I now understand why my mother-in-law loves this place so much. She is now a little bit old, quite sick, but still tries to spend some time at the water.

It is Mother’s Day on Sunday so of course we will take her to the Lister!

    When I drive my mother-in-law to a lake it's usually for some other purpose rather than to sightsee.
