This week my in-laws, Faith and Larry Furtick, both celebrate their birthdays (Faith's was on the 28th's, Larry's comes up the 1st). I truly could not ask for better in-laws. They have always treated me as if I was their own daughter.
They are also great grandparents. They have evolved into their role as Grammy and Choo-Choo with grace and patience.
Every year for the past 8 summers we have vacationed at the beach with the Furticks. When children were added to our vacation, and the days of reading for hours while sitting in a beach chair changed to reading for minutes and sitting in the sand, they rose to the occasion.
Happy birthday Faith, thanks for being such an amazing mom, mother-in-law, and grandmother. I hope to follow in your footsteps.
Happy birthday L-train, thanks for always treating me with the grace and mercy…the way family should be.
