Happy Birthday You possess much in the way of common sense as well as a very practical nature.You have a straightforward manner, but you are also capable of great imagination. You can be quite determined, independent, and some might call you stubborn. Thoughtful and considerate, you enjoy making others happy in small but important ways.
