Q: “The only thing I want for Christmas is for my husband to stop being jealous of my mom. I am pregnant, and we are already battling about who can be in the ultrasound room when the baby’s gender is revealed. I want my mom; he doesn’t.
I have a close relationship with my family. My mom and I are great friends and share lots of time together. My parents have never missed a special event in my life. He is not close to his family. They squabble more than they talk civilly to one another. He views our closeness as control, not a family bond. He says this should be something the two of us share, not everyone else. How can I convince him that I want her to be a part of this important time? I don’t see anything wrong with that. Am I being selfish, or is he?"

On Thanksgiving morning, I get up early, sit quietly with a cup of coffee, and write an ABC gratitude list in my journal. I note the A-B-Cs down the side of the page and then quickly fill in with something that I am grateful for.
