Sisters (in-law) by Chance, Family Forever

I’ve mentioned before how lucky I am to have such a big family; and I am, hands-down, one of the luckiest people I know.  I’ve written about some of my sisters, brothers, and brothers-in-law (not all of them yet though) and one sister-in-law.  Today I’d like to thank two more sisters-in-law.

First off is my sister-in-law, Debbie.  She is funny, smart, pretty and a great mom.  When I was in college I was on the Student Orientation staff and would have to drive up to Vermont for a few weekends each summer to be on campus for orientation weekends.  I didn’t have a car of my own  and wasn’t sure how I was going to make the trip unless I took the bus.  Debbie offered her little tan Chevette to me for these weekend trips.  It was a standard transmission and I was still getting the hang of shifting.  I don’t think I did too much damage to it.  Without that supportive gesture, I couldn’t have been part of such a great experience during college.

My other sister-in-law, Laura is also talented, smart, pretty and a great mom!  Shortly before my grandchildren came to live with us I’d had surgery on my thyroid.  While I was recovering Laura generously made several really terrific meals to stock our fridge so we wouldn’t have to worry.  When the kids did come I’d put the word out that they each came with only one small suitcase of clothes and toys.  Laura was there again!  Clothes that my nieces had grown out of and toys to share, delivered to my house. 

What I’m most thankful for with regard to these lovely ladies, is that they love my brothers and make them happy!   I’m also quite grateful to count them as my family!  Thanks Laura and Debbie, XO
