My husband's family was of a different religion than mine...

My husband's family was of a different religion than mine, but this caused no friction. He was loving and considerate, and went faithfully to church with the children and me. When my mother-in-law became sick and needed hospitalization I asked her if she would like to know how Christian Science could help her. She smiled but didn't ask for help.

Because my father-in-law was retired, my husband became concerned about the mounting hospital bill and felt he should pay it. I agreed, although this meant we had to borrow the money on our house—and to put our mortgage back to the beginning balance. The time came when a doctor reported Mother had only a short time to live, and suggested we put her in a nursing home or care for her at home. My father-in-law gathered his six children together to tell them what the doctor had said, and to ask them what they wished to do. No one wanted to put her in a nursing home, but no one offered to take her into their own home—until my husband said he would like to do it.
