The one thing I am passionate about...
People I love, kids, dogs and Peach Snapple! Can't stand controlling others or being controlled...just let people be who they are! God has a thumbprint on us all...our job is to walk close enough to Him to sense the nudges, to listen, do, grow. I'm adament about good parenting, kindness to others and walking through life with an open heart. We may get bruised; but looking back, I've had a wonderful life full of great people that God has brought into my path for my enrichment.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love water activities, white-water rafting, kayaking, floating on a raft on a lake, canoeing, sailing. I also like to read, take classes, plan social activities with friends, walk my bassett pup in the forest, participate in leadership activities at church, listen to mellow music, play in the outdoors with my grandkids (ages 2-12), read good current books and attend the latest academy-award nominated movies.
The most influential person in my life has been
A person of itegrity; a person with sensitivity, good judgement and confidence. I'd like to meet a professional man who loves family, is intelligent and looking for new interests, such as travel, educational persuits and a partner to share his heart. (I'd love for him to be open to taking the Myers Briggs Temperament inventory - it tells a lot!)
The first thing people notice about me
She's a good listener, seems to really care about what I'm saying! She's very 'up', but transparent with her feelings. She's 'in touch' with herself and open to other's opinions.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Three Cups of Tea. Greg Mortensen visited Afganistan and promised to build schools for the girls. He did, through amazing circumstances. Nice to watch what's happening in that country now and how he will adapt. I loved his sense of adventure and followthrough when he believed in a cause.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My excellent health
- My family - great kids with fabulous grandkids!
- Opportunities to have fun, a ministry and a challenge
