My passions in life are many, but include: my sons--the talented two men still living, and the one on his mission in Heaven; learning more about the Gospel and Heavenly Father's plans for me; having fun teaching kids, the environment, American history, art in all its forms, and language in all its forms, smoothies and salads; learning new ways to get exercise. I've been a teacher all my life, currently in elementary school. I'm looking forward to retirement in a few years though, so I can play, travel, and be creative. I want to get more fit so I can enjoy life more for many more years!
I believe it's never too late to find the person that completes you. I don't feel or act like my age, and my dear eldest son tells me I don't look it either! I am happy, creative, and have a good sense of humor and I keep busy learning and sharing new things every day. I have to do something creative every so often to keep sane. I have so many ideas, and so little time!
I was baptized in 1974, received my Patriarchal Blessing In this blessing I was humbled by several references to moments of trial and despair, challenges, and the “vicissitudes” of life. I was also promised that the Lord had faith in me and my ability to cope with these vicissitudes. I have some good stories to share! I can attest to the fact that my life has indeed been quite a ride, but I'm still here with my faith intact, and I'm stronger and grateful for that ride. I can't imagine my life without the Church. I know my Heavenly Father loves me because I've been been given many challenges to overcome, and have grown so much. I'd love to meet a worthy companion who would cherish me, and maybe plan to serve a mission together.
I enjoy going to the theater, movies and musical events. I love spending time with my boys- thrift store shopping, craft shows, trying new restaurants. They are funny, creative guys and we like being together. My first and favorite job was as a high school art teacher, and I enjoy anything creative. I grew up camping, water and snow (s( span="")pan style="font-weight:bold;")skiing,(/s() although I haven't had much opportunity to do these in recent years, but I want to be active and busy, and to go fast! I'm anxious to explore the world and I would love to travel in the future. I love to have fun, and enjoy spending time with friends who like to laugh and enjoy life.
