The one thing I am passionate about...
I want to say my faith, but a more accurate passion would be my children. I do so much to make sure they are exposed to as many aspects of life possible. Next is my family which includes my pets. I tend to have a big heart for animals. Last is having fun living and enjoying life.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy reading a great deal. I also enjoy hiking, jogging, and urban mushing with my dogs in my spare time. Movies, sporting events, dining are also fun. The rest of the time has been confiscated by my kids.
The most influential person in my life has been
Humor and a real sense of humanity. The ability to understand human nature and able to roll with the flow as well as the ability to perservere.
The first thing people notice about me
Body Language. Do they look you in the eye when they speak. When a person does not look me in the eye when they speak, I tend to stop paying attention.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read a bit of everything. When I feel stress I read romance novels, or suspense/crime stories. I also like humorous books on life in general. I've been reading thru-hike memoirs lately.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Faith - I believe that I am blessed
- Family - Nothing is more important then family
- Friends - help keep you grounded when you get off kilter.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Most people especially males look at me as a great friend potential. I have been told that while I can be that great friend girl you can count on to go to a game, movie or even the range I tend to be a bit intimidating. I have no idea how that is so.
Friends Describe me as
Genuine, Good listener, Hard Working, Intelligent
