I am thankful for my daughter’s family, because no matter how much time goes by between visits and phone calls, they always make her feel loved and welcome. They do not ever make me feel awkward when I speak with them, which is something many of my friends feel in relation to their current-or-ex-in-laws.
I love knowing if she misses them I can tell her to pick up the phone and call, and she will be reminded of all the reasons she loves them.
We are all busy in our day-to-day lives, so we don’t always think to reach out. It is nice knowing that when we do, it is welcomed by them too.
This week daughter is across the country, on a long-overdue visit, and loving every second of it. There never seems to be enough time, but hopefully she will get to see everyone and get reacquainted with each if them.
