The one thing I am passionate about...
Maintaining close relationships with family and friends. I decided a couple of years ago that I needed those special people in my life to know what they meant to me. If anything happened to me, I wanted there to be no doubt about my feelings and the special role they each had played in my life. I've learned through personal experience that tomorrow is promised to no one and something this important should never be put off until "someday". I want to live life to it's fullest!
I typically spend my leisure time
Shelbi (my daughter) and I have "Mom/Daughter" days when we may go have lunch and shop or take in a movie or we may stay in our pj's all day and snuggle and watch movies. I love going to the lake. I like craft & antique malls. I enjoy almost anything if it involves spending quality time with the special people in my life. This would definitely include my partner in a relationship. I look forward to finding someone who I love being around no matter what we may be doing, whether it's being a home-body or going out on the town. I'm not very athletic, but I'm a great spectator & cheerleader. I'm open to new adventures.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty, kindness, affection and love of the Lord. I want a person who will pray with me & for me. Since the death of my husband 21 months ago, I need someone that understands I am looking for a soulmate - longterm. I'm not interested in head games or a fly-by-night. My 11 yr old daughter is a very important factor because she is longing for a male figure in her life. She is ready for me to move on and be happy again. I am, too! I can't let her get attached to someone that isn't interested in staying around - I'm not sure my heart could take it either. I feel God has released me to live again and it's exciting, as well as terrifying!
The first thing people notice about me
My smile & joy. I've had several comments of how people are touched by my joy, despite the unfortunate things that may have happened in my life. It's a choice I made and the rule by which I try to live my life. In ALL things give praise! I made up my mind along time ago that I would not let Satan steal my joy. I love life and laughter and intend to live mine to the fullest.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I don't make the time to read many books. I recently read "Five People You Will Meet in Heaven". It makes you stop and think about how you live your life and how your actions may effect others without you even knowing it. I enjoy short stories in magazines and devotionals. I'm a hopeless romantic and always enjoy a sweet love story.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My daughter, Shelbi.
- The wonderful life God has blessed me with.
- My cherished family & friends

A little more about me
I hope I don't scare people off by sharing that I am a widow, etc. I'm not looking to attach myself to the first person that comes along! Sure it gets lonely, but I'm very independent. I've had a very blessed life, despite the rough times. I'm interested in being in love again and growing old with that special person that I know God has chosen for me. I don't intend to compare a new relationship with the one I had with my late husband, that part of my life has ended and now it is time for me to live again.
