Happy Birthday Mackinley!!

“Show me the boy at 8;
and I’ll show you the Man.”

Here is Mackinley.
My first-born,
my light,
my hope,
my joy,
my frustration,
my pride,

with ambition,
with energy,
with intelligence,
with compassion,
with creativity,
with all this
but mostly
with love
and being loved.


You are never alone
You belong to a family
You belong to God
You stay connected
You will stay safe
and grow and prosper
and do great things
for the least of us.

Mackinley = “learned ruler”
