Spell Saab

Not every girl is lucky to have a mother-in-law she gets along with. Most mothers-in-law are dubbed “monsters-in-law” because of how they meddle and how they can’t seem to relinquish the power they have over their children, especially their sons.

I count my lucky stars that I have married into a family who not only accepts me but wholeheartedly welcomes me into their lives.

My mother-in-law is a gift. Mommy Bing counsels people in need of guidance. I believe she was put on this earth to help people from all walks of life. I’ve spoken to her in counseling sessions, as have a number of Jim’s friends who needed somebody to talk to during difficult times. She does not judge. Instead, she listens. According to Jim, mommy Bing has never smoked a cigarette, never gotten drunk, and never cursed in her life. It’s not unbelievable at all. She’s a gentle soul who somehow has so much power to push people towards greatness. This is what she’s done for her own children, and this is what she does for the children of the Kythe Foundation.

Papa Gerry, my father-in-law, and mommy Bing have been active members of Kythe for years. Just last weekend, we celebrated mommy Bing’s 60th birthday in Quirino Memorial Medical Center where children from 5 different hospitals came over to join the fun.

I had a blast as well, getting to spend time with the kids. Seeing them always uplifts my spirits. They’re always smiling and they really are so affectionate, a lot of the children kept hugging us.

She let them make their own wishes as she wished everyone more years to spend with their loved ones.

    You guys are an inspiration to people. Wish I could also sponsor for events like that. Always wanted to bring kids a little sprinkle of joy! Hoping you’ll be the way to make it happen. ?
