Every year, I stay over at my in-laws' house on Thanksgiving night while the rest of the family makes the hour's drive home. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law and I have gone out shopping every Black Friday morning for years now...it's the tradition and we have the routine down. When my alarm went off this morning, I jumped in the shower and then ran downstairs to grab a quick bite. My father-in-law was the only other person in the kitchen, and he pointed to the styrofoam Dunkin Donuts cup on the counter and told me to make sure I grabbed it.
Seems that my MIL woke up this morning, realized that there was no caffeinated coffee in the house (my in-laws only drink tea) and MADE A RUN TO DUNKIN DONUTS JUST TO GET ME COFFEE.
Absolutely unnecessary--I would have been perfectly happy with tea, I've been married to their non coffee-drinking son for a long time--but such a tremendously kind gesture, I couldn't believe it. That, my friends, is love, and I'm a damned lucky daughter-in-law.
