The one thing I am passionate about...
Spending time with family and friends. Travel, new adventures, meeting new people. Am passionate about child safety and their well-being. I do my best to help those who are less fortunate. My Christian beliefs are a big part of my daily life. I help support charities through my parish.
I typically spend my leisure time
Relaxing with friends and family, eating out with friends enjoying stimulating conversation. Enjoy cooking. Working in the yard, weekend travel. Enjoy a really good book that keeps me guessing... Have been known to finish novel in one sitting...marathon. LOL
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is honest, able to communicate verbally and not just by text. A man who is trustworthy, honest, has a sense of humor and a strong Christian belief. Someone who finds enjoyment over the little things in life....the early morning fog on the lake, rain beating on the window, wind rustling leaves. He should have a desire to experience life, live to the fullest, travel, as well as enjoy quiet time reading or cooking.
The first thing people notice about me
I am basically shy until I get to know someone. I move at a fast pace and have to remind myself to slowwwww down. I think this is due to the fact that my work day is so busy that I have to keep moving to get it done. I like a good joke and laughter and am known to turn a conversation upside down with off-the-wall comments. I have to watch myself there.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I rarely remember the name of the books I read. It's generally not the title that I remember, more the content.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my Savior, Jesus Christ.
- I am thankful for my son
- I am thankful for my good health and steady job.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I may seem stoic on the outside, but am really a softy at heart. I am compassionate and passionate, understanding and a good listener. I am confidential with any discussion when I need to be. I've been told that I'm honest to a fault, probably because I expect honesty and trust in a relationship. If you can't trust each other, you are just spinning your wheels. Lack of trust or the lack of earning trust serves no purpose but to cause unnecessary tension in a relationship. I would rather someone brutally honest than someone who says what he thinks I want to hear. I have no patience for deceit.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Genuine, Loyal, Spiritual
A little more about me
I enjoy the simple things in life.....walking barefoot on carpet, wearing jeans and t-shirt. I like to work in the yard, the smell of fresh cut grass. I like my quiet time at chapel and attending Mass every weekend. I find that quiet time for me is the time I hear the most, silently waiting for my Savior, Jesus, to speak to my heart. He is always there, always! I enjoy cooking for friends and family, love a good laugh! Never intend to hurt anyone by laughing at them, only laughing with them. I have a soft spot for animals.....not all animals....snakes can go on their merry way....please and thank you!! Cry at movies.
