A Day in a French Life... by Kristin Espinasse
In the kitchen this morning, I overheard Jean-Marc talking to our daughter, Jackie.
"Aujourd'hui, c'est le 12/12/12."
His words reminded me of the very special day. It's my mother-in-law's birthday! I think we'll call her at 12:12 and tell her twelve times that we love her. On t'aime! On t'aime! On t'aime!...
And then give her 12 good reasons why:
Elle est très drôle.
She is so funny.
Elle est très intuitive.
She is veryintuitive.
Elle est sensible.
She is sensitive.
Elle est courageuse.
She is courageous.
Elle fait le meilleur gâteau au chocolat du monde.
She makes the best chocolate cake in the world.
Elle raconte les meilleures histoires.
She tells the best stories.
Elle a de très bons goûts de décoration.
She got great taste for decoration.
Elle est très fidele en amitié.

Elle est généreuse.
Elle est attentionnée.
Elle est très discrète.
She is discreet.
Elle fait la meilleure tapenade.

Happy Birthday to my beautiful belle-mère. Thank you for the dear children you have given me and thanks for sharing your son with me!
