DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have had some crazy life changes since the pandemic started, mostly positive. I have found a wonderful, well-paying job that I enjoy. In our 16th year of marriage, we also brought a happy and healthy daughter into our lives. We recently bought a nice house and added another nicer used car to our assets. In addition, my job allows my husband to realize his dream of being a stay-at-home father with our daughter.
I come from a very religious family, although I am no longer religious. We don’t attend church services with the family, and it seems they’ve adopted the philosophy of “don’t ask and we won’t tell” most of the time. My dilemma is: how do I respond to their constant comments that we are “so blessed” to be where we are?
