Hi - I'm Lynn - I'm sure you already guessed that I was originally from Ohio the buckeye state since my profile name is Buckeyegal.
I was born and raised in Canton, Ohio. I moved to Salt Lake City with my three children after a sad divorce - a "Please Release Me - there is someone else" type of divorce - when I was 31 years old. My Relief Society president introduced me to a friend of hers and later we were married. My husband passed away after 37 years of marriage. I decided at this time, since I was not brought up in the church, that I would go on a mission. I was called to serve in Independence, Missouri for a year.
Before leaving on my mission I met a wonderful man on L.D.S. singles who I dated up till the time I left for my mission. When returning home we went back to dating and we married in May. This sweet man who was the love of my life passed away from bone cancer after 2 years of marriage. Sometimes I feel that life just isn't fair.
I love living in this choice state where there are so many beautiful temples. I attend the temple every Tuesday without fail and on other days when able.
I love to be around positive people and I always try to have a positive attitude about life in general. I love to serve and help other people as I truly believe the statement that when you are in the service of your fellow man you are in the service of the Lord.
I enjoy walking in the evening and watching the sun set, traveling anywhere anytime, just sitting and talking about anything and everything, laugh frequently as laughing is the best medicine. And I love to spend time with my kids and grandkids as they are the joy of my life - along with my furry pets that I love dearly.
I like to be around people who have a strong testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, who attends church regularly and who knows that God lives and hears and answers prayers. He may not answer them in the way you want, but I know He loves me and will be there for me to comfort and guide me when I am in need.
I want to thank all who have sent smiles and messages. It's been an enjoyable experience.
