The one thing I am passionate about...
The thing that I am most passionate about at this stage in my life is my children and raising them and giving them whatever experiences and opportunities that I realistically can. But not to the point to taking over my life. One thing that I am passionate about are the arts. Live theater, concerts, music. My daughter is a performer so it runs strong in our house. The other thing that I love deeply is the water. Being around it is very calming and centers me. Alot of people use "walks on the beach", for me it is a powerful place, almost spiritual in a sense.
I typically spend my leisure time
Being that it is winter time, I enjoy reading and watching a good movie with a cup if tea.Going to the movies or exhibits or museums. Outside activities do not really interest me in the winter. In the warmer weather, I enjoy anything outside. Gardening, walking, watching sports, or just watching the geese with their gooslings in my front yard. I enjoy just getting in my truck with my daughter and going and seeing what we can find to explore. There are many things that I have not done or tried but would be willing to. It's time to change the quiet leisure time!
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a person that can communicate openly and honestly. In doing that can also do it without judgement or hostility but with compassion. I am a person who loves to talk from good morning messages to talking for hours about everything and nothing all at once. Honesty and trust is the basis of everything. I want to know that I can trust someone 100% with by entire being and world.
The first thing people notice about me
People notice my "air" of confidence and strength Trust me, I am not always as confident as I might come across. i am always willing to tackle a project or new adventure with the same enthusiam and confidence in myself as I would anything I am familiar with. Not too much intimidates me to the point I will back away. My confidence comes the from being able to adjust, adapt, compromise and move forward. I guess I am just comfortable being me.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was "The Longest Trip Home" by Josh Grogan. the story tells of a young man basically trying to find his own way in life, not necessarily what his parents planned for him. His trials and tribulations with his family, himself and life in general and then having to make that very long journey home to eldery parents and end of life. The story was a touching yet meaningful read. I liked it because it was funny, sad and very true to life and it's issues
The three things which I am most thankful for
- the thing that I am most thankful for is my 2 healthy children. They are creative, kind, intelligent, and all around beautiful. They are also very supportive of me and the things I wish to do for myself and to better my life. They want me to genuinly be happy and content.
- The second thing I am thankful for is my immediate and extended family. That extended family includes my closest friend. Friends and family are very important to me and is not something you compromise in any way. I am thankful that my parents are still with me and healthy, my sister and brother in law and their precious children, twins my neice and nephew, my best friend in the world and her son and my neice. These people i would do anything for and thankfully, them for me.
- I am also thankful for my self. My health, my ability to pick up and start over and keep moving, my never die attitude, the ability to talk to people and really enjoy their company. My being able to see my children everyday and their accomplishments and successes in life. For being a good parent who is able to listen and not just hear.For being able to survive, adapt and continue on and not hate the world for the "bad" things in life and just give up but to grow and continue on.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
One thing people don't notice about me right away is the way I care deeply and passionatly about things and people. But how would you until you got to know me better? When something is good or great in your life you must nuture it, protect it and love it like no other, without strangeling it.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am a very devoted yet strong independant woman who will fight for what is right and what I believe in. I am not the stay at home Betty Crocker type--most of the time. I am at the point that my kids are 26 and 14 and I want to move on with my life. I want to have try new things, have fun and enjoy life. To share, to take care of each other and nuture a relationship where one is meant to happen.Relationships take time and work, so if its meant to be it will be.
