Hhhhhmmmmmmmm, where do I start and how do I describe myself so that you know who I really am, and not just what I want you to think that I am??? We could all make stuff up, right?
Ok, first off, I am not crazy nor do I need medication....at least that's what the voices in my head tell me.
I have a full time job raising my 8 kids.....seriously only 4 (2 are adults now).
I really do have a full time job/career. No, I didn't put my career before my children...I am very happy being a mother first and foremost. Circumstances, however, have dictated that I provide for my children. Thankfully, I have been blessed with the ability to obtain a corporate job.
So, yes, I will require a little conversation other than "What's for dinner, dear?"
I absolutely love my children and wish that I could have had more. So, if you have children, I would adore an overly filled house. I dream of huge holiday and weekly family gatherings, the more the merrier.
I loved my Texan father dearly, he was a farmer and left that to join the military for life......I am a military brat. I was taught to work hard and work the land harder. My hands might be a little rougher than yours...
The things that I HONESTLY love to do, (no, I'm not saying this so you will 'PICK ME, PICK ME') :::::
I love to camp....in the dirt, in a tent!!!
I love to hike....to the mountain top, to the vista, to the other side..........
I love to ride quads....sand dunes and trails
I love to run........not jog, not walk...run-like a marathon
I love spending time exploring anything new.
I love to laugh.....whether that is at myself or at you!
I have skills.....if guys like girls that have skills :) I have them..
I am musical, can't sing but I can play a few instruments. LOL!
I can grow my own food, (remember the farmer father)then I can cook it or bake it, (I was a journey man baker for several years for a local company)
I have survival skills (I'm a good shot),
I can read children's books for hours and hard books, too; I'm very good at sports, and very competitive..so watch out!
I have been a good mother, as evidenced by the grown children that I have. I have a very very soft and loving side. Don't let the humor and energy confuse you.
SO! If you have read this far, I have gotten your attention..
First and foremost, I love and live the Gospel. I love my children as well as all of God's children. I am a daughter of God. I am faithful, I try every day to serve the Lord. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
I still have a lot of life in me, so I like to have fun (within standards) Men are that they might have joy! I don't believe that being LDS = boring. I know the appropriate time to be reverant.
From a man:
I do not expect perfection... and I will not tell you what I think you need to do (nag)(unless you really want my opinion).
I am looking for an active man, who loves the Gospel (even in his imperfections), wants to lead his family, but with kindness.
I will only accept kindness, patience and love from the people that I allow into my life, for that is what I give. (with the understanding that we are human).
Well, if you want to know more, you will have to write me!
Live, Love, Forgive and never give up! The days we are given are gifts from above! We are all here, at this very moment, together.
