Until you get to know me, I can be a mysttrie ;) shy, quiet, sweet. I'm also kind, intelligent, tenacious, persevering, accomplished, and awesome. Most of all, I'm REAL. I'm known by my friends as truly genuine.
I prefer a holistic and natural approach to life. I value good communication and humble straightforwardness. I enjoy simple things in life that are relatively free. My children have always been my primary joy. I enjoy being with them, with wonderful friends, and also having a little precious quiet time alone.
I appreciate music, nature, and animals. I'm not into fast pace and modern; I enjoy old-fashioned standards, vintage era homes and decor, antiques, and most anything wabi-sabi (do you know what that means?).
I stay busy and creative. I do fine art, illustration, graphics and web design. I'm a writer, passionate about my book projects, nonprofit work, and service. I enjoy building and remodeling (I built an 8-bedrm 3-story home on 4.5 acres as a single mom). I love to dance and sing. I like to cook holistic meals for others. I strive for balance, despite obstacles. I can be serious and opinionated, but love to play. I'm strong-willed and can be rebellious at times. If someone says it can't be done, I will do it!
I'm a simple girl who has had a full and complex life. I've courageously survived intense challenges, and rarely take the easiest road. I recovered from critical health issues, which brought me blessings I may otherwise never have known. I'm grateful to be here and work to fulfill my mission in life.
Love and family remain my first priority, despite the corrupt state of our present day world. Money, power, and material possessions should not be what makes the world turn. I’m very involved in working to advocate and protect children. I aspire that someday there may be something we can do together to make a difference. I’m adaptable and I put my all into everything I do. I can enjoy most any activity when in the right company. I know how it feels to be adored and cherished, and that I never need settle for less.
I'm interested in new friends with similar experiences and feelings, who are understanding and trustworthy. I hope to find a special friend who is EMOTIONALLY AVAILABLE; a truly "good" guy with impeccable integrity; an articulate communicator, willing and interested enough to discuss anything; supportive; optimistic; mature; sincere; responsible; caring; spiritual; genuine; fun; gentle; loves children and family; equally yoked with me; and a special plus if he's a long-winded writer; musical; and likes to dance!
My match and I will mutually cherish, adore, and love one another with blessings and guidance from the Lord, who will be a part of our lives as we share an eternal journey together. I identify in my heart as a widow through experience, but can still be sealed in the temple; I've never yet had the opportunity for a fulfilling marriage, but have lost love both through death and divorce. I know how to compromise and to give. I believe the best blessings are ours when we trust and endure in faith. I'm comforted that Heavenly Father knows, loves, and provides for us individually, and His design for us is infinitely better than what we could ever imagine on our own.
I enjoy flirts, chatting, and messaging on this site, sharing humor, comparing Compass reports, and hearing from you! I wish you the best in your search and journey!
