I love this! Especially the touches of Indian culture in here-it makes it so much more real! Wonderful job-especially at the end where they spent Christmas together, what a great description of such a lovely memory. ^_^
Your entry shimmers with the tender love you hold for your mother-in-law and the unexpected gift of her considerate love for you. I can tell English is not your first language because of some of the word order and choices. Your overall writing flows smoothly and clearly, conveying a great depth of emotion.
What a wonderful accolade to your mother-in-law! What a wonderful insight into Christmas practices in India! I loved the picture you have painted in this story. I am enjoying getting to know you better with your writing. I shall put you in my tracking, so that I know when you have written a new piece. I do hope you will keep writing. (I have now read all of your stories)...By the way, I also had a wonderful mother-in-law, who was a comfort to me, as my own mother had passed on by the time I got married...Great story telling, Thresia...Keep writing....Helen
