The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about relationships with friends and family. I love music of all kinds. I am passionate about reading and learning about almost anything. I have a great love of the outdoors....camping, fishing, swimming, hiking, traveling, exploring, gardening, star gazing, sports, biking etc... There really isn't much that I don't find interest in as long as I'm doing it with someone I am happy to be with.
I typically spend my leisure time
Aside from spending time with my daughter, I don't have 2 or 3 things that I most enjoy doing. I'm a "go with what works for now" kind of person. In general, spending time with people I care about is one thing I enjoy. It doesn't really matter what we are doing...just hanging out, going out, camping, yard work, watching a good game or cooking a big dinner. I also enjoy spending time alone, reading a good book, watching movies, baking, shopping, goofing around on the computer, taking a nap, playing piano or just putzing around. I'm very easy to please and find enjoyment in doing just about anything.
The most influential person in my life has been
There are several qualities that are most important to me. Integrity, compassion, affection, sense of humor, patience and the ability to love fully are all at the top.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm always smiling. I hear that quite a bit. I'm just a happy and easy going person.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I love to read. I read as much as I can about anything that interests me in any given moment. I thrive on learning new things about almost anything. It may possibly be considered an obsession by those who know me well. Lol. As far as books, I recently read The Summons. Grisham is one of my faves for pleasure reading. I also just read The Tipping Point.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My daughter, the most wonderful gift ever, and the rest of my supportive, loving (and slightly crazy) family.
- My loyal and compassionate friends who help me to become a better person every day.
- The adversities and challenges life has given me that shaped me into a person with depth, inner strength and empathy.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm not sure that there is anything I wish people would notice. If I want someone to know something about me, I just tell them. Lol
