Thanks Momma Bree, My husband is hoping we can have a chance to speak with my dad alone soon. We feel like we've been as direct as possible. I am waiting closer to when my birthday is and hoping they will let us all come over together during that time. I do share with them the real meaning of Easter and Christmas too but, I struggling with not feeling religious too. I am trying to keep an opened mind on that subject my goal is to enjoy my birthday and any major holiday.
