Thankful 12

The in-laws. 

You always hear horror stories about in-laws.  I was always curious about who my in-laws would be, if they would like me, and if we would get along.  Haha...think Monster-in-Law with Jennifer Lopez.  If you haven't seen that movie, it's HILARIOUS.  My mom and I love that movie and die laughing every time.  

Little did I know though that a couple years back the Bishop of my church (similar to a pastor) and his sweet wife would be my future father and mother-in-law!  I knew them about a year before Todd even got back from his mission, and boy did I love them.  That was before I even knew I was going to "have to" love them for forever!;)  

I am so grateful for Todd's parents, for my in-laws.  From day one they took me under their wing and treated me just like one of their own!  They are beautiful people with big hearts and set such a great example to me.  With Reese on her way, it's a huge blessing to know that she will be surrounded by lots of family that I know will love her just the way they have loved and cared for me.  Bill and Hawley are some of the kindest, most generous, and selfless people I know, and I feel so lucky to be their daughter-in-law.  

Definitely counting my blessings!
