Today is McKay's 22nd birthday.
She is my third child (& daughter).
She is absolutely the sweetest girl.
She will do anything for anyone.
Mckay goes to Brigham Young University and also works nearly full time as a manager at ART CITY trolley restaurant in Springville.
(she LOVES her job!)
She is so funny and everyone wants to hang around with her. She is the person everyone wants to be best friends with. She can keep you laughing forever, but can be serious and determined too. She has always been so friendly and yet she sees the one person alone and will leave the crowd and go sit with them. She cares about people.
She served a mission for our church in Seattle, WA for 18 months and considers this the "biggest" blessing in her life. She speaks fluent Spanish and loves the language, the culture and serving. She changed her degree at BYU after serving her mission to work for a international nonprofit organization.
She is crazy funny. She calls me on the phone and says, "YO, Teresa" and I say back,
"YO, Mama to you" and we laugh.
She is NOT a morning person and I talk to her anyway. She often will respond with a growl to me.
She went to Peru last Summer to teach English in the schools there. This summer she paid her own way to Columbia South America to do humanitarian work for four weeks. I am proud of her for working, going to school and saving her own money so she could do this in her time off from school. She leaves on Saturday and I will miss her but am very proud of her decision.
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY McKay-
I love and adore you.
Always my little "rat."
