The one thing I am passionate about...
I love attending church but don't feel that is what makes me a Christian. I adore animals..should have been a zoo keeper lol .Like to watch sports,especially nascar and have a good "battle " over winning drivers. If it is a sports game I will always cheer for the other team just to keep things lively. I love being outdoors, yard work, picnics, walks,etc. Love reading mystery books and biographies. I can not bear to see children, animals, or the defenseless abused. My anger shows up clearly in those situations. I love sitting by a fire, cuddling, either with or without conversation. Enjoy hand quilting. Am also adventurous Want to parasail.
I typically spend my leisure time
Family takes care of family! Love a lively discussion but equally love sitting quietly together. Enjoy reading, quilting, crafts, and a clean house. Love to sit by a fire.Hope to go parasailing, snow skiing, and hot air balloon riding yet. Love animals, hate most insects. Love the out of doors. Love to stay up late and sleep in in the morning. Reading!
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty and integrity. Someone who can respect my opinions but not necessarily always agreeing with me. A person who is kind, tender, & sensitive; not afraid to show his vulnerability. Someone I can lean on & he can lean on me. Warm is good. Not too serious... life is too short for that. Someone who enjoys the little things in life.
The first thing people notice about me
Well now, that is pretty subjective, isn't it ? People tell me that I make them feel good and know how to make them laugh.
The last book I read and enjoyed
" The Time of My Life" by Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi. It was a bit slow but the strength and determination to over come obstacles throughout his life has to be admired. He is not one of my favorite celebrities but through the book I gained a certain amount of respect for both he and Lisa.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- That the Lord loves me. I can not imagine not knowing that every situation in my life is the Lord's hands and all I need to do is seek Him and trust Him
- Family and friends. I have been blessed with great kids and wonderful friends. The friends I treasure are the ones that I do not need to see or talk to every day but we both know we will always be there for each other. We can be honest and open yet respect the others privacy.
- .Life in general. I have had a wonderful life. Hard times...some of course,but there is always some good to be found even in the worst of times. I always try to see the good and be thankful for it.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am sensitive. I am a retired pediatric nurse and have learned not to allow my emotions to always show. However, you never know what I will say or do next.... be ready. I can promise it will be in good taste.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Kind, Loyal, Sweet
A little more about me
I was married 40 years and faithful the whole time. I am devoted to the person I am with but not smothering. We all need some time and space of our own. It should not be taken personally. I have 3 grown children and 9 grandchildren. It will be of upmost importance that I be able to maintain my relationship with them. I will honor and support the same from the right person. The significant other must be first however.
