Hello! I just have to vent! LOL! My inlaws are staying in D.C. (where we live) for three months to "vacation" and hang out with our kids. They are retired and love to travel. It's nice having them here most of the time but they are super religious....Southern Baptist...believes the bible literally etc. Well whenever they come over for meals they all have us hold hands and say grace. This makes me NUTS!! It's MY house, so if I don't believe in prayer then i don't feel like we should have to do it when meals are in my home, but I also want to pick my battles and be respectful. It ticks me off thanking "god" for this food...when if that was the case...."god" was the one giving out food...then why are there MILLIONS of people/children starving at the same time that we are eating our lasagna! The ridiculousness of it burns me up, but they are sweet people and mean well...it just makes me uncomfortable....but I don't think any good would come of me mentioning it...so I'll just vent here! Thanks!!
