The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about helping others and being kind and respectful to them. It is important for me to let others know that they matter to me. Whether it is my children, family, friends, my co-workers, my patients, people who serve all of us in the community, the homeless, or the people I am preparing to serve in Haiti or Guatemala on a short term medical mission I am preparing to go on in the Spring, and respecting myself and my own needs. It may sound selfish to put caring for myself in this list, but I believe it is important to take care of oneself and in time, I look forward to someone special who will become part of my inner circle.
I typically spend my leisure time
Hi! I like to be with people that I love and care for - family and friends. One of my favorite places in the Summer is strolling along the boardwalk, at the Marina, in Olympia. I want companionship to enjoy these things.I have been training for my first triathalon, please read at the end of my profile about it's significance. I like to linger over a cup of coffee in the morning.I love to drive, especially a spontaneous trip to Ocean Shores.I like browsing at Barnes and Nobles. I don't feel 57, I feel much younger and want to try new things. I take care of myself.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who is not perfect and doesn't expect me to be perfect. I want to be friends first, someone who likes to communicate with spoken words besides social media. I want you to know that it's okay to ask tough questions and talk about things that have happened that are difficult, because that is how we heal and become whole. I am 57 - and I will have baggage, but most of it is dealt with. I don't expect you not to have baggage, I just hope for the most part it won't be really dramatic baggage. I have 3 children, they are grown. I am looking to be part of someone's life, that includes everything.
The first thing people notice about me
My kind nature and openness as well as my expressiveness and approachability.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I tend to read more than one book at a time. One in the morning, with my coffee, something inspirational to start my day. Then usually a couple of different ones at night. I am reading "Believe in yourself," and "The 10 rules of the Red Sea," for my nighttime books right now. If I read a novel, I want it to be something I can relax in the bathtub with, so I don't want to read something heavy. My sister read to me as we fell asleep as young women and it was wonderful. I think that would be something I would enjoy now with that significant person. It's not a must, it's just a thought.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family and friends, they bring joy and someone to be concerned and care for, love...
- My life as it is right now, but I am ready to see where the next part of the road leads me.
- I am thankful for my job. I am a Registered Nurse and love my career. I am so lucky.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
In life, I think that it is important to want to make a difference in the world. I believe almost all things are possible and even in those things that aren't possible,we can still find beauty and meaning in them.I'm not exactly sure what the word love means, but I know that telling or showing someone that they matter to me is essential in my life.I am tall, so I often have my arm resting on someone's shoulder when they are in need of support or closeness.I am careful with my words, because you can't take them back and they can cut like a knife.My faith is important to me.That's probably not a popular thing to say, but th
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am easy going, not fancy, but I enjoy special events. My passion is making a difference in the lives of others. I have learned so much and have found that through adversity, I can find joy and become a better person. I am a nurse on a kidney unit. I work with amputees, young people who have overdosed and others who have great difficulties to overcome. I started out preparing for this triathalon for me.I have bilateral knee replacements, so have had to work hard. I work to inspire them to live life fully and encourage them not to quit. I ask them to come back in a year and tell me what they have done. It is incredible to see hope begin.
