A few weeks ago, she came up to me at church with a bag. She said, "I know you think I forgot, but I was talking to a teacher at work who also has the same 'problem' as you. She suggested trying these things to help." In her gift bag was a can of cashews, coconut oil, a notepad and little box for prayers and worries, and finally a stressball. It was so thoughtful! And of course, in true Caleisha form, I cried.
I'm pretty sure that was the moment I really believed that my in-laws love me. It's a pretty great blessing to have in-laws that care about you and feel like family. I mean, you always hear or see things like 'monster-in-law' and other crazy depictions of in-laws. People are always warning, "remember you're marrying the person and the family..." I am very grateful for my new extended family. They've been such a blessing as Lamar and I start out in this married thing :)
So yeah... This is a story about a stressball. And it reminds me of how much more love had come into my life!
