The one thing I am passionate about...
Widowed so my passions at the moment are my family, friends, my two schnauzers and taking care of my home, attending church and being involved in the community and thinking about shorter car trips (gas prices, you know)!
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to paint with friends, read, watch TV movies, Fox News. Since my husband passed away, I talk a lot to my dogs, (just kidding). Right now, my yard needs me! That's when I talk to God.
The most influential person in my life has been
Kind, Honest and Communicates. Can be funny or serious... An encourager, thinks of others and interested in keeping up with current events ...... Above all, a godly person.
The first thing people notice about me
Usually I fit right in......I'm not one for being the "center of attention". I'm just a pleasant person to be with....I have a soft voice.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"The Shack" The setting of the story brought back memories of where our family camped on a lake in Oregon when our children were growing up. Also, Rick Warren's "Purpose Driven Life". After reading that book, I made some significant changes in my life (for the good)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Thankful knowing God is in charge of my life.
- Thankful for my family and extended family.
- Thankful for my LIFE's journey as it has molded me into a better person.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm a quiet person in a crowd, some may think I'm not friendly, but, that's not true.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Kind, Loyal, Respectful
