Personal Statement

 I am 54 years young and am married 27 years this past  June 23rd to Mark. He is my first and only husband and we are extremely close.

I was born and raised on Long Island, New York and living here in CA, they hear my accent and know I'm from back east!

I became a teacher and taught for 20 years back in NY. For personal family reasons, my husband and I left NY in 1994 and headed to Florida to be my mom's caretaker.

Ten years later, in 2004, mom  passed and we headed to CA, land of the redwoods, where my husband, who is 10 years my senior, wanted to retire.

We have a special  boy,soon to be 17, getting a better education here than in FL, and loving it here.He had his Bar-Mitzvah in 2008 and is now attending an independent study program for high school.

 I love the Lord and became born again in 1998. I am a Messianic Christian and was baptized by the Holy Spirit in May 2008.  What an awesome experience! Read my testimony in my journal.

As of right now, fall 2012, I have battled bladder cancer in January 2012. I am due for my year CT scan in December and pray that all is clear. I feel great and am back to doing everything.
