Proudest Personal Achievement and Why?
I am proud of the relationships that I have with family and friends. I have a smart and beautiful 17 year old daughter, with whom I learn and grow each day. I have an adopted 19 year old son, whom I am so blessed to have call me “mom”. I, my kids, my mother and father, my sister and her husband and their two little ones, have regular “Family Days”, and vacation together each year. The friends in my life are more like family and we support each other through the challenges of life and celebrate anything and everything, just to be together.
Three words someone else would use to describe me:
Caring, Bold, Fun
I consider a day a success if:
If I have learned one new thing, and positively impacted one life, I have had a successful day.
