One of the many things I have to be thankful for are a greatmother and father in-law.

So many people refer to their in-laws as out-laws.  We’ve all heard the mother-in-law jokes and we’veall heard mother-in-law horror stories from our family and friends.   By the way….why do you never hearfather-in-law jokes?!

Thankfully, I don’t have this problem.  My mother and father-in-law are great!  They’re very supportive of my husband and I andthe decisions we choose to make.  They’realways ready to give their advice or opinion when asked for it, but they neverover step their boundaries.

My in-laws adore my children and have a great relationship withthem, but I’ve never felt threatened by their relationship.  I can trust that they won’t allow my childrento do things I wouldn’t allow when they’re left alone with them; with theexception of eating too much junk and getting their clothes too dirty!  But that’s what Grandparents are for, right?

I don’t have nagging,always in our business, always at our house kind of in-laws, nor do I havethe kind that never calls, never comes tovisit, and doesn’t have a good relationship with my children.

I don’t want to take my husband’s parents for granted.  They were in fact the ones that raised such afine young man that I feel in love with! I’m thankful for the way they raised their little boy to grow into aman.  He’s one that works hard to providefor his family, is full of vision, respect, and isn’t afraid to stand up for truth no matter the cost.

Thankful Challenge:
Show your in-laws your appreciation for them.  You can write them a letter, send a card,make a phone call, or invite them over for dinner.  Express to them just how thankful you are tohave them in your life.
