Today I went to a family lunch made by my mother-in-law, they know we are Athiests, we've had this discussion multiple times but today she still insists on us all joining hands while she prays to Jesus and at that point I'm standing there in the circle looking at everyone and all my kids looking at me as this is very ackward for them. I want to say something but don't know how to do it without offending her. I dealt with my own dad on this, I guess I'm going to have to get on my husband about him dealing with this. It just feels very disrepectful toward us, but we are to respect their belief. I feel like I'm about to explode. Grateful for the wine I was drinking, help keep me from exploding. Any suggestions?
