I am a mother of 6 and a grandmother of 12. Born and raised in Maine I now reside in Colorado.I raised my children as a single mom and now that they are all out on their own I feel like it is time for me to look beyond the housework and everyday life of a single mom and see if there is someone I can have a normal conversation with of the male influence. I have the greatest respect for a man that supports and provides for the ones he loves. Being a single mother and having that responsibility made me understand why God made a man's shoulders so much wider then a woman's. I love the out doors and during the summer I am taking every opportunity to go hiking or camping or just being out side, always taking the opportunity to spend time with my grandbabies. Having grandchildren has mellowed me out and I find that I have much more compassion and patience with every day life. I like myself a lot better now then I did being the "bad guy" all the time raising my children. Being with someone that likes to laugh and finds joy in the little things would be what I would wish for if wishes came true. Hope you are out there.
