The one thing I am passionate about...
Bedides my family, I am passionate about playing and listening to music. I enjoy almost any type music. Also, I can't imagine not being able to read daily. I always have books in my home waiting to be read.If I have my music, books, camping (trailer style) my family, church, friends, and God, I am one happy person.
I typically spend my leisure time
What leisure time? When the opportunity arises, I play the the organ and piano. I read a lot. I love to camp (with all the modern conveniences.} I do a lot of crafts, especially with my embroidery machine. I usually have the stereo on rather than the tv. I spend time with my daughters and their families. I also like to ride on the back of a Honda Gold Wing.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty is an absolute "must have" ,for any relationship, even friendship, to sustain. The ability to discuss issues, personal as well as events of the day would be attractive, also.
The first thing people notice about me
My smile. I always meet people with a smile. Along with a smile is friendliness. Having always worked with the public, especially when nursing, a smile and a friendly manner can help people at very difficult times, even when recieving that smile from a stranger.
The last book I read and enjoyed
It so happens today, I read a book regarding the Prayer of Jabez. My daughter is getting ready to teach a study on this prayer and asked me to read it. I gathered more insight into this prayer, its history and significance. It makes one think as well as understnad the use of this prayer. I am in the proces of reading 3 other books and I am in various stages of each book. At least one book is always open in my home waiting for me to pick it up and readl
The three things which I am most thankful for
