THAT GIRL.... I want to be like her!!!!!!!



This is McKay right before she went on her mission. We had went to the temple with her for the first time. She GLOWS.
From the time she was a little girl, I was blessed with this sweet child to inspire me. She has always been a mommy's girl.
She would CRY very easily if she thought she did anything wrong or hurt your feelings. She is YELLOW to the core.
As a little girl, I said she was so friendly that she would be found talking to and becoming friends with ROCKS.
 


We had no idea that Tyler was so sick in this photo. He had been losing weight and was just not feeling great. He loved his little Mickey D. (only Ty called her this)
He was so proud of her. We had no idea that he was sick and
that on the day we took her to the Missionary Training Center in Provo Utah... June 15th 2013 that would be the last time they would see each other on earth. He fought so hard to see her come home. He found his first lump on that same day after we got home from the MTC. Looking back, I know he had been sick for longer.
This sweet man... my best friend is one of the best things that ever happened to me and our family. He helped me raise my girls with so much integrity, love, values and always that FAMILY IS EVERYTHING.
 


As she was preparing to go on her mission, I could not stop taking photos. We can be a silly bunch. I would say we all are
just best friends. We believe in each other. We support each other. When the world go CRAZY... we have EACH other.
 


My sweet McKay called me one day to tell me that she KNEW that she was supposed to go on a mission. She was attending BYU and had just listened to conference and learned that girls could choose to go on a mission at the age of 19.

She called me and we cried together. I knew that my sweet girl would want to go and serve. I knew her passion for life and family and God would help others. I know her LIGHT is
strong. She was the head captain for her MHS drill team in high school. I saw her kindness and leadership. There was no MEAN GIRL inside her. I always have told my children this-

Don't be a follower, be a LEADER.Make a difference in LIFE and to the WORLD.
Each of us can brighten the world and bless others by serving and
helping others. It's so not about US. 
 


She came home from BYU and prepared to go on her mission. She loves her ZACHY and went to ALL of his baseball games. This girl has inspired me to want to serve others more.
It's easy to just think of yourself... it's easy to just
be caught up in the world. It's easy to worry about what others think of you. Her focus has been what GOD thinks of her and helping others to know this too. 
 


I love this girl.
I will say that her inner beauty is like the brightest STAR.
She gets home on MONDAY.
I know Tyler will be witnessing this and there with us.
This is a HOMECOMING celebration.
I am so thankful that God gave me this beautiful girl to help inspire me in life. 
 


I know that in the end... THIS IS WHAT MATTERS.
Life inspires me. LOVE inspires me. 
LOVE SPRINGS EVERYWHERE.

Hi sweetheart, oh I love this post so much. I'm just so happy McKay is coming home.. you need her right now, along with all of your scrumptious children. I can see the light literally shining out of McKay in these photos - she is a very special person, just like her Mum. Ty will be right there with you hugging you all close! Love you xxxx

Teresa, I am so amazed by your family and the strength and the love that you all have for each other. I wish i had a family like that when I was growing up. But I didn't. I love my life now and I have learned that you get what you put into it. I learn every day. your story has taught me to appreciate my husband more, I know he is not perfect but neither am I. I know to love and cherish him every day. and to let the little things go. thank you.
