The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about my family. I have 2 children, and they are the center of my world. I am love spending time with my children, my parents, and my brother and sister and their families. I love intimacy with someone I love - not necessarily sexual intimacy, but spirital, soulful intimacy based in trust and love.
I typically spend my leisure time
Leisure? As a single mom? LOL Since it only comes in short bursts, typically I veg in front of the computer or TV. When I can get away, I like to shop, scrapbook, or talk with friends. As a family, we attend church, camp, and play games. We went bowling as a family recently, and will do more of that in the future. If I had more time, I would like to get away, even for the weekend, to just enjoy (whether it be cultural or just good old nature.)
The most influential person in my life has been
Trustworthiness. Someone I can build a relationship with, based on mutal respect, love, and trust.
The first thing people notice about me

The Purpose Driven Life - it helped me re-think a lot of things that I take for granted and The Prayer of Jabez - same reason.
The three things which I am most thankful for

A little more about me
I am not set in my ways. That is not to say that I go which ever way the wind blows, but I am flexible, not rigid. I am always looking for new friends, new experiences, and new relationships. In many ways, my life is starting over, and I have that same "fresh-faced" optimism I had when I was 18!
