I see myself as an outgoing, positive person who is always looking for what is right in the world instead of focusing on the negative. I like to find ways to accomplish things rather than make excuses for why it can't be done. Life can be tough, but focusing on blessings can help everything fall into perspective.
I enjoy a good sense of humor and am young at heart. I love to be silly and have fun. I enjoy going to movies, live theater and concerts. I like singing and music. I love spending time with friends and family. Dinner together and a game around the table is the best! I enjoy the outdoors, especially in the summer. Although, I also snow ski and like winter if I can play in the snow. I love going for walks, swimming, biking, camping, picnics,,, I get up before 5am to walk with my dear friend, and in the summer I find more time for personal, regular exercise. I'm nervous about growing old. I would call myself spontaneous, although I do like order and organization. I love to travel and to experience new things. I love Colorado and any coast. I live being busy, but love time to kick back and relax.
I like to have meaningful conversations about things of depth, and substance.
I am a mother of 4 and my children mean the world to me. I was a stay at home mom for 16 years, and when my youngest started school, I finished my bachelors degree in Theater. Now I teach Performing Arts, which works well for me as I get to move, innovate, create and build positive relationships, hopefully making a difference.
I was married in the temple in 1987 to a man with many talents, but who always seemed to have criticism and control instead of appreciation. We had a difficult time of it, and although I gave everything I had, constantly praying for a miracle for his heart to be softened, never believing divorce to be the answer, I am completely confirmed that it is the deliverance I so desperately sought for all those years. I am free, happier, more content since being on my own. It has been about 7 years now, and my daughters have graduated, one married in the Nauvoo temple, and my boys are 18 and 15-soon one to leave on his mission, and then only one left at home. I have felt strongly that my energy needed to focus on my children, but now, in this time of change and transition, I am feeling ready to move forward. I don't expect to rush into any relationship, but would like to start making friends that might lead to a relationship where we could share a life together. One where there is mutual respect, care, and deep and abiding love.
