I am very creative, funny, loving, resourceful, active,and devoted. I have two dogs, that I cherish. I enjoy spending time with my adult children, 11 grandchildren, and 2 great grand children.
I enjoy going to movies, live theater. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing life's experiences. I have enjoyed serving in the Mesa Temple for a year now.
I'm new at this. Lets just say, I was engaged at 17..Married at 18.. Got my son at 19.. Got my daughter,bought a house, and married in the Temple at 21.. had all four children before I was 24.. berried my youngest daughter on her 15th birthday.. and lost my wife of 45 years to cancer. Now there is just me and my dogs. I find myself talking to them, answering for them, arguing with them, and taking their side. Pathetic HUH?
I have written several poems of life experiences. I would like to share one
Some of us have children and get to watch them grow
Some of have heartache when we have to let them go
Sometimes it's hard to guess what life will bring
Be it the loneliness of winter or the beauty of spring
I wish I could hold you close to my chest
And wipe away the streaming tears and bring your heart to rest
I wish that I could help you and lend you a hand
But how can I do that when I don't understand?
It hurts me to see you in so much pain and sorrow
And not know if your life extends into tomorrow
I try to be steadfast, I'll try not to give in
I'll put on a false face and hold up my chin
Though the pain and sorrow are in me to stay
I know that Heaven is only a heartbeat away.
