The one thing I am passionate about...
My number one passion in life is working with children. I have worked with children of many ages and socio-economic backgrounds. Having the opportunity to watch children grow not only academically, but socially and emotionally, as well, is a definite "turn-on" to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy spending leisure time communicating with friends, cooking and gardening. I also enjoy working around the house, whether it be routine indoor chores, working around outside or preparing to entertain. There are also quiet times that I enjoy listening to music, reading a book or watching a movie.
The most influential person in my life has been
I believe you must share honesty in any relationship. Being open and honest, whether with your partner, your child or with a friend, is the foundation of any relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
Since I find appearance somewhat superficial, I would hope that my smile or perhaps even a look or a touch, would leave someone that I meet feeling a sense of warmth from me.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho.It's about the power of one's dreams and the importance of following your heart. When all is said and done it's finding a treasure within yourself.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my two grown children and grandchildren
- my many friendships
- the opportunities that have presented themselves along the way enabling me to grow.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish people would know that I am a very caring person. It is very important to me that people know that they can expect to be cared for and treated with respect when they are a part of my life.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Hard Working, Thoughtful, Warm
A little more about me
I'm not a game player. At this point in my life I'm looking for someone to share in my life and in what I have to offer. I'm not a high maintenance type of woman, I enjoy the simple things in life (i.e. holding hands, going for walks, sharing daily happenings ...) I want my special someone to truly be my best friend. I want to take care of each other and enjoy each other by sharing our lives together.
