The one thing I am passionate about...
at this time ,i am passionate about making my environment and surroundings extremely calming, beautiful to me ,a true refuge to come home to after work. i am interested in cooking, providing a lovely home for my daughter and her friends. i am strongly in favor of entertaining. i have already mentioned the importance of my faith and family. now that my daughter is preparing for college,i will be able to do other things in life which i have postponed . i think going to certain musicals, operas or symphonies may be quite lovely.i think the companionship of being with "my man"may open a whole lot of other avenues of things to enjoy,
I typically spend my leisure time
i enjoy being out in nature -so in the mountains ,by the water ,sitting under the stars at night ,watching the moon rise; so places like Hawaii are my absolute favorite. i enjoy when the house is quiet and i can sit and reflect in front of the fireplace,or read periodicals, home improvement magazines, food magazines. i used to be an avid reader and loved Les Miserables, The Source. i like going to san francisco to all the different areas, walking along the piers.
The most influential person in my life has been
mentally ,physically and emotionally well and stable.i am also looking for that fellow that has reached a point in his life where he is financially able ,confident in who he is ,willing to laugh at just silly things, i need a person who is not allergic to cats/dogs,whose core values are pretty close to mine and knows how to treat people with respect,is authentic,and the hopeless romantic ,his talk and his walk are in sync- a guy solid like a rock.
The first thing people notice about me
people generally open up to me ,they note i am a good listener,they feel safe to do this i guess. i can meet people at a restaurant and they just start talking and telling me about their life
The last book I read and enjoyed
my time to read is extremely limied -so for now i usually read periodicals related to medicine, or home improvement, decorating ,cooking. one of my most favorite books was Les Miserables- it evoked so many emotions,you saw the pathos of human suffering and also the power of hope.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- God in my life is the first place wherein gratitude is needed. My faith is a vital part of my life and my personal relationship with Christ allows me to conduct my life as i do. i am a balanced person and often do not go on about God ,but His presence in my life is felt.
- my daughter- i have single handedly raised,educated and nurtured my daughter whom i had at the age of 45,ater a brief marriage to a drug addicted angry person whom i divorced for my safety as well as that of my newly discovered unborn baby. it was never my idea to bring a child into a divorced household which meant i would have to leave her while i worked. everything was managed and manageable . i had great flexibility as a nurse ad truly spent very little time away from her . she has been a delight and is now a senior in high school working on college apps. she filled a place in my heart that i never knew. was empty.
- i am grateful for the healthy youthfulness with which i approach every day,for the laughter always ready to pour forth,for the gentleness and compassion i show. i am grateful for long standing friends,for the warmth of entertaining,cooking, decorating,baking, . i am grateful for the appreciation of life and all the small wonders of nature like presents to be opened every day,always changing ,never static.i am greateful that though my physical youth and beauty may have passed ,i am still alive, vital ,interested in a new relationship with life,vitality and excitement
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
sometimes, i am a bit more quiet until i know people a little better.it would be great if people would not be intimidated by what they might term aloofness
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Funny, Genuine, Intelligent
A little more about me
i am pretty rusty at dating -something that used to be second hand to me. i have put dating and relationshps for the most part on the backburner because of time constraints , not being able to fully be available for that fellow that was meant to be mine for life,the complications that arise when you have a child , the energy it takes to solely ,financially , and emotionally support a child ,their activities and their friends. now , i have that time beginning to dawn and now i know the time is right to work through friendship leading to marriage.
