Because She Does, Thursday



Sweet McCall is my sister-in- law and we were blessed to have her come into our crazy family of ours. A bit ago it she was able to stay here for a month and it was so fun to get to know her more and have her stay with us.

Before McCall was married she was very dedicated, and one of those things she dedicated herself to was dance. She was on the BYU folk dancing team for many years, she had such a great talent and earned many solos, which she performed through out Europe. She touched many lives with her talent and her passion for something good.

McCall has a great positive attitude about life, and when she had her heart stolen by my brother,  they were off to another state for his schooling. Both family and friends were left behind but she has tried to make the best out of her situation and use her talents to make her surroundings comfortable.

She has made friends with those that are in time of deep despair and I know they cling to her friendship as she tries to buoy them up in those moments of crisis. McCall is so teachable, humble and so sweet to all those around her and is thoughtful to others feelings. She is always so grateful for what she is given and ready to help at any moment. I remember when we had a party at our house and the place was a mess, as I began cleaning up I noticed she started with me even at the time when she was pregnant and had really bad back problems. She wasn’t done until it was all done, and then had asked what more she could do.

McCall is also a devoted mom and has so much love for her baby girl. She had taught me a lot of different things about being a mother when i have gone to her with questions.

 McCall truly shines and is such a joy to be around. She always made me feel worthwhile and is there to laugh at my jokes, even though they might be lame. She makes life fun whether it is talking, playing games or feeding children.  She is a gorgeous person, whose smile is so contagious. She’s been a good example to me and we just love McCall.

McCall I'm so happy Shelby featured you today. You truly deserve the recognition for being a great mom, wife,friend and individual. I'm so happy you are part of the family and the beautiful spirit you bring to our home. You are kind and giving. I don't think you could ever be mean to anyone. Thanks for your example.

Shelby - will you adopt me as one of your sister(s) or sister in laws??? Each one of them is wonderful and your appreciation of their uniqueness and strong points; their tenderness and their hearts is heart warming. I enjoy reading how these incredible women touch your life and make a difference in the lives of others.
