How to kill your mother in law

A long time ago in China , a girl named Li-Li got married & went to
live with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very short time, Li-Li
found that she couldn't get along with her mother-in-law at all.

Their personalities were very different, and Li-Li was angered by many
of her mother-in-law's habits. In addition, she criticized Li-Li

Days passed, and weeks passed. Li-Li and her mother-in-law never
stopped arguing and fighting.

But what made the situation even worse was that, according to ancient
Chinese tradition, Li-Li had to bow to her mother-in-law and obey her
every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the house was causing
Li-Li's poor husband! The great distress.

Finally, Li-Li could not stand her mother-in- law's bad temper and
dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something about it!
Li-Li went to see her father's good friend, Mr. Huang, who sold herbs.

She told him the situation and asked if he would give her some poison
so that she could solve the problem once and for all.

Mr. Huang thought for awhile, and finally said, "Li-Li, I will help
you solve your problem, but you must listen to me and obey what I tell

Li-Li said, "Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do."Mr.
Huang went into the back room, and returned in a few minutes with a
package of herbs. He told Li-Li, "You can't use a quick-acting poison
to get rid of your mother-in-law, because that would cause people to
become suspicious Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that
will slowly build up poison in her body. Every other day prepare some
delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her serving.

Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspect you, when she dies, you
must be very careful to act very friendly towards her. "Don't argue
with her, obey her every wish, and treat her like a queen." Li-Li was
so happy.

She thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to start her plot of murdering
her mother-in-law.

Weeks went by, and months went by, and every other day, Li-Li served
the specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered what
Mr. Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she controlled her
temper!r, obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated her like her own

After six months had passed, the whole household had changed. Li-Li
had practiced controlling her temper so much that she found that she
almost never got mad or upset. She hadn't had an argument with her
mother-in-law in six months because she now seemed much kinder and
easier to get along with.

The mother-in-law's attitude toward Li-Li changed, and she began to
love Li-Li like her own daughter. She kept telling friends and
relatives that Li-Li was the best daughter-in- law one could ever
find. Li-Li and her mother-in-law were now treating each other like a
real mother and daughter.

Li-Li's husband was very happy to see what was happening. One day,
Li-Li came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help again She said,
"Dear Mr. Huang, please help me to keep the poison from killing my
mother-in-law. She's changed into such a nice woman, and I love her
like my own mother. I do not want her to die because of the poison I
gave her."

Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head. "Li-Li, there's nothing to worry
about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I gave you were vitamins
to improve her health. The only poison was in your mind and your
attitude toward her, but that has been all washed away by the love
which you gave to her."

HAVE YOU REALIZED that how you treat others is exactly how they will
treat you? There is a wise Chinese saying: "The person who loves
others will also be loved in return." God might be trying to work in
another person's life through you. Send this to your friends and
spread the POWER OF LOVE
