I am thankful for my in-laws. I know, most of you are probably laughing. Who'd be thankful for in-laws, right? Well, Keith and I are very fortunate that his mom lives next door. So, during the week she shares childcare duties with my parents. She usually gets the girls when appointments aren't a part of the day. She spends time teaching Aubrey her ABC's and 123's. She even teaches Aubrey how to cook! How lucky are we? She's very interested in learning about Bailey's therapies and what she can do to help with progress. Plus, she's been known to cook dinner a time or two for Keith and the girls while I'm in class.

I am also thankful for Keith's dad and Molly. They have both been there for us during some of the most difficult times. They were with us the day Bailey had her heart surgery, saying prayers, showing their support, and listening when I needed to talk. Molly helped me remain strong when I felt I lost control of everything, and she listened to me during those late night calls to give updates on Bailey's progress. Frank has helped Keith with projects around the house, and Molly is always just an e-mail away to answer my questions, and provide guidance.

I am very thankful they have made me feel like such a welcomed part of their family. It truly means so much to me.

I must admit, I'm a little jealous! I'm happy that you have good inlaws! I pray for this for my children every day... yes I pray for their future spouses but I also pray that they LOVE their inlaws... just not more than they love me though! hahahaha
