The one thing I am passionate about...
My family, seeing my children become happy succesful adults and and trying to lead a happy life.I really do believe that life is too short to sweat the small stuff. I have a favorite quote that that sums it up for me: "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined" .---Henry David Thoreau
I typically spend my leisure time
I have recently joined a gym and try to make time for that. I enjoy walking my dog, reading, shopping, going to the movies or dinner.Getting in the car for a day trip is always fun too. I like some TV shows and watching the Sox or the Pats. Taking in a Red Sox game at Fenway is always fun. I have never been to a Patriots game but would love to. I love to be anywhere near the ocean, wether it is sitting on the beach for the day or visiting one of the quaint towns along the coast. I have even tried my hand at some some surf fishing from the beach and had a lot of fun. Concerts, plays, walking around Boston and many other things.
The most influential person in my life has been
Happiness and contentment.I have a great family, good friends, a nice home and a career that I love. I am happy at where I am in my life and would like my match to be also. The only thing missing is someone to share it with! And of course a sense of humor is important.
The first thing people notice about me
I am usually smiling and friendly.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Have a little faith by Mitch Albom. It is a true story about the Jewish author who is asked to write a eulogy for a rabbi. Over the course of the book he gets to know the rabbi and at the same time develops a friendship with a pastor of a poor Detroit church. The book follows their different backgrounds, faiths and friendship. I loved how it showed that no matter how different we are, we are all basically seeking the same things.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My three children. They are happy, healthy and becoming fine young adults. They are both my joy and my greatest achievement.
- That I grew up in a loving family and that I am still close to them.
- That I have a career and a job I love.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am not sure what people don't notice about me. I try to be friendly to everyone I meet and hopefully that is what they notice.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Easy-Going, Funny, Happy
A little more about me
I have been divorced for a while and have spent this time raisng my kids, working and just leading a busy life, Now that my children are older(24,22 and 18), they are busy leading their own lives and I now have a lot more time for myself. I would love to to meet someone to go to dinner, a movie , a ride to the beach or simply staying in and enjoying the company. I am a very easygoing person and can enjoy doing just about anything. I am comfortable in casual situations and also enjoy dressing it up once in a while. I am a very positive person and feel this is a great time in my life and I am looking forward to finding someone to share it with.
