I get to ponder today. I love it when I ponder. Thursday finally has a purpose. Thanks to Brenda.
In-laws . . . does that make you shudder?? I think of my own in-laws. The first impression . . . my husband flew me up to his parents' house so we could "meet" . . . shudder. His mother met us at the airport. She called me by the wrong name. On purpose. Yes, I'm fairly certain it was on purpose. Shudder.
After 25 years, however, I no longer shudder. Yes, in spite of the name attack at the airport, the shudder shackles were lifted. Fairly quickly. I was blessed with some awesome in-laws. They have been great examples of compassionate living and have been wonderful grandparents to our children.
And, I might add, that my own parents have been pretty terrific in-laws to my husband.
And, I might add again, that I have found that "in-laws" is a term I don't like to use much - - we are all just one big happy family . . .
And I hope that someday my daughters-in-law and future son-in-law will think the same thing.
