My greatest joy is my 9 children (2 bio/7 adopted). . and 29 grandchildren. I retired as an RN Clinical Manager 3 years ago and recently returned to work by choice. I was bored with retirement although I am financially independent without working. I am positive and enjoy new adventures. I was happily married for nearly 40 years until the death of my husband in 2008. I am ready to move on to a new chapter in my life. My kids and grandkids are very important to me, but I really miss the companionship of a spouse. I don't do single very well. I would like to travel and, perhaps, serve a mission(s) with a new companion. The only baggage I carry is luggage necessary for travel. I have been serving in the Dallas Temple....an amazing experience.....for the past 2 1/2 yrs. I look forward to meeting many new friends on this site and best wishes to each of you, as well.
