Birthday Dec 07  
Languages English  
About Me I'm organized with work and unfortunately that doesn't carry over to my home, love my job, have a dry sense of humor, adore all animals (generally prefer them to people), and my idea of a vacation is being able to relax with a good book and spending time with my pets.

What Gives Me Hope The children I work with inspire and motivate me.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by mandating education about respecting animals & harsh penalties for harming them, completely changing the way public schools are managed, ensuring that everyone has access to free quality healthcare, reforming the justice system & removing people from prison for petty offenses to make room for serious offenders (because I'd be repealing the death penalty) and finding a way to significantly slow down or stop developers who seek to pave every inch of earth they can...that's during my first week.

    I'm so sorry I missed your birthday. Hope it had been a special one, as special as you my friend. But I believe it's always "better late than never"  - what do you say?
    Be happy always!

    Another year has passed and you have become even more lovely. Happy birthday Michele. We have a common thread in your birthday. You were born on the day my dad was stationed at Pearl Harbor. He was a good man. So enjoy your day and allow yourself the opportunity to do something for just you. After all, you too are God's blessing to the planet. Be well.
