Last night the ear doctor and I had a long discussion about how lucky we are. We both love our respective in-laws.
My mother- and father-in-law are fantastic people: kind, thoughtful, concerned and loving. I know they will never be the type of people who are controlling or pushy. They'll never force us to make a decision we don't want to make. I know, in the future, they'll never tell us that we're doing something wrong in raising our as-of-yet-unborn kids. They love me the way I am. They don't hope that someday I'll change into what they want me to be.
And I was taking this for granted.
Because the more people I meet and the more stories I hear about in-laws the more I realize this is rare.
How is your relationship with your in-laws?
