The one thing I am passionate about...
After rethinking this question I realized that my passion has changed as I matured and my life evolved. Now I would say I am passionate about letting the people I care about, know how much I love them and want only the very best for their lives (without interfering hopefully).
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to watch and listen to good music. My idea of good music is down home country or gospel music played by locals or well known artist. Walking is one of my favorite leisure time activities. I also enjoy playing cards with friends. Not a serious competitor but love the ebb and flow of a good visit while playing a few hands of Rummy or Pitch.I also enjoy traveling to explore new areas and eating places or just "junkteqing."
The most influential person in my life has been
Character of the man is high priority for me. He must love the Lord and have an active relationship with him. I am looking for a man that I would be proud to introduce to my children and friends, and I would welcome a man that doesn't see himself as "old".
The first thing people notice about me
That is a hard one.....probably my red hair and I would hope my smile. We always see ourselves differently than other people do.
The last book I read and enjoyed
A book by Karen Kingsbury
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am so thankful that Jesus died on the cross for someone like me.
- Thankful for the many opportunities to see and do things I never dreamed I would get to do.
- I am thankful for the family God gave to me.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I love to listen to other peoples "story". I usually ask how a couple met and then just sit back and watch their faces as they remember what drew them to each other. It is fun to see them get that "spark" or "twinkle" in their eye as they relive the attraction that has kept them together. It is always special no matter how old or young they are..
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Genuine, Good listener, Outgoing
A little more about me
At this age I love going antiquing, reading interesting novels, volunteering in my community and working in my yard and garden. I have two married children, who have blessed me with 8 grandchildren. They are my world right now. We don't get together as often as we used to but as my children's families get older and of marriage age, it is the natural progression of life to spend time with their own children. I enjoy them when we are together.
