The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about family. I worked very hard with my boys so they would understand they were each others best friends. We take care of each other in times of crisis, celebrate the times of joy, and love each other every day. We don't always have to agree, but we accept all our differences because different is not wrong; it's just different.
I typically spend my leisure time
I am pretty active physically, and love to play tennis and golf. I love sports and have my breakfast with ESPN Sportscenter. On the lighter side, I love to sew my own clothes, and knit sweaters, and if I could find the time to read three hours per day, I'd be in heaven.
The most influential person in my life has been
I want you to be comfortable and content within yourself already. I am really looking for that relationship that feels like my favorite pair of jeans. I want to move together in a natural rhythm of life, hard to define, but easy to recognize when it's there.
The first thing people notice about me
I think they feel a warm atmosphere around me; it's like I have an invisible sign that says, "Hi, come sit on my front porch, and lets talk."
The last book I read and enjoyed
Chasing Innocence, written my my youngest son(20). It's a mystery novel about a man whose wife is killed in an auto accident, and he ends up being suspected of foul play. I loved it because I saw my son's character reflected throughout the story, and it's good enough to be published. And that's not just my opinion.I also love anything by Baldacci, Crais, Meltzer, and Lundrum
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am most thankful for my faith, and how it's helped me through some hard times
- The best of what we are - children. I am so thankful for my three boys.
- Family- I have a great family filled with love, a brother, 2 sisters, aunts, cousins-all very special
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I think it's the same for all of us; we wish people could see right away how deep we are, all the nuances, all the character, all the good parts, and all the heart.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am a really fun person, not uptight, not moody, and not high maintenance. I will not try to change you; by this time we have all evolved into something that is pretty close to core, so let's just see if something clicks.
