“I’m blessed to be celebrating my 57th birthday! I don’t have a real birthday this year because I was born on 29th of February which is on a leap year…If I had one wish, If I had a genie bottle, I would go on a trip to Florida and I would just relax. Maybe go on a vacation to Disney or something and just relax with my grandson. He’s 11 years old. That’s my dream, just to go sometime this summer and let him see something else other than DC. I took care of my mom for 12 years when she had Alzheimer’s and I had to take care of my dad because he got sick as well. I was flying back from Washington DC to Memphis Tennessee to North Carolina to take care of them. When my mom passed away, I always said that after this is over – I just want to go on vacation for a few days. I just want to rest, eat, and sleep some more. I haven’t had a vacation in 12 to 13 years.”
Students will be surprising Ms. Frankie with a birthday cake and balloons at 4pm today in Einstein Bagels. Let’s also surprise her with this fundraiser and help make her vacation wish come true!
