The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about family and friends and the need to be honest and fair in relationships. I have found that dishonesty and being hurtful in relationships causes rifts and pain that many times cannot be repaired and if people are only caring and honest with each other, these things can most times be avoided.
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, taking walks, sewing, spending time with friends or my nieces/nephews, watching movies/tv, going to the zoo or museums, shopping....
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for honesty and openness in another person. Someone who really knows how to care for someone else and be real in a relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
That I have a nice smile, but that I don't use it often enough and that tends to put people off. They sometimes think I'm aloof because of it...which I'm definitely not!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I have read and enjoyed many books..one of the last was 'Abigail's Story'. A fictional story about Abigail and David of the Bible..it was interesting to think of how they might have come to be together. Another was 'Trace' by Patricia Cornwell..a Kay Scarpetta novel, those are always good!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am most thankful for my two children - they are the most important and beautiful things in my life!
- I am thankful for my friends - I have some very caring, loving friends and don't know what I'd do without them.
- I am thankful to live in the country I live in.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
The one thing that people don't notice that I wish they would is that there is more to me than what they first see. I am quiet and reserved at first, but there is more below the surface, if someone only takes the time to get to know me for who I really am.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Kind, Quiet, Romantic
A little more about me
I enjoy doing things with and for that 'someone special' in my life, holding hands, walks in the park, cooking something special for them, cuddling, back rubs, and I like getting the same in return. I always give as much or more than I get, but someone has to do just a little 'digging' to get to know the real me, but in the long run, I believe it will be worth it!
