I love life, family and the gospel. Besides my four beautiful children, I am the proud grandparent of two beautiful grandchildren whom I adore. I love adventures, whether in my own back yard or half way across the world. Laughing everyday is a MUST especially at yourself (and believe me, I can find several reasons a day to laugh at myself) You have to know when to be serious but you also need to be able to cut loose and have fun! Life is just full of wonderful surprises that are waiting to be discovered and enjoyed and I want to be a part of it. I love the feel of wet grass and sand between my toes and anywhere there is water i.e. mountain lakes, rivers and the ocean. Even better if fishing is involved. I enjoy staying healthy by eating right and exercising daily. One of my greatest joys in life is in the service of others. "What do we live for if not to make life less difficult for one another." Other things I enjoy are writing, composing and singing music, dancing, kayaking, playing cards, hanging out at the beach, catching fireflies in jars (I know...it's silly but I like it) and being with family and friends.
What I'm looking for in a relationship is where both people have each others back, spiritually, emotionally and physically. They pattern their relationship in faith, love, forgiveness, trust, and believe in one another not only for what they "are" but what they can "become." They find great joy in the others accomplishments and are there to help lift and inspire especially when one or the other falls. Through Christ's atonement we get a "do over" in life...many, actually, if we need them. I want that in a relationship and I have enough love to give that as well.....One glance at each other from across a room gives you a feeling of that "down to your toes" kind of love.
At the end of my life when I return to God, I don't much care if I've earned trophies or awards, the big house on the hill or honor of men. What I do want is dirt under my nails from weeding a neighbors garden, tired arms from holding an exhausted mother's baby, bags under my eyes from staying up late into the night listening to a teenager's heartbreak of lost love, peanut butter kisses from the kids in the nursery, a sore throat from singing with my friends till I can't sing anymore, sore feet from dancing until dawn and the love of my family and friends. I want to come sliding into home plate thoroughly used up and exhausted with every last bit of energy and yelling "Geronimo!!!!"
