I'm not sure what to say here.
First, if I've viewed your profile and not left a message, it isn't necessarily that I'm not interested in you, but that I'm fairly certain you would not be interested in me. So I don't bother. That doesn't mean you can't initiate the contact. Please do.
I'm a genuinely nice person. I'm intelligent, a life-long-learner, articulate, funny (in a sweet and kind way, never mean-spirited), have many (sometimes too many?) interests and passions, am happy with my life as a single woman, AND would like to meet, marry, and be sealed to my eternal companion, as I've been promised, sometime in the not-too-distant future.
I love the gospel and don't know how I lived before my conversion (baptized August 2013) without the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the guidance and protection of the Holy Ghost. I've done things in my lifetime that I'm not proud of, but becoming a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has been a monumental turning point and I now love and respect myself as my Lord and Savior does, and try to live as He calls me to, and serve Him as He directs me to.
I've never been married because I was not a member of the Church and so I didn't realize it was that important. I never had children of my own due to now resolved health problems, but would love to help you raise your children and/or enjoy your grandchildren. I did raise two amazing young people who were the children of my ex-significant-other. (Such a strange way to talk about someone that I loved and devoted myself to for so many years...but there it is.) So, I am not a stranger to children and parenting. I love my grown "adopted" children very much, though they don't understand the choices I've made in the last few years and no longer speak to me because of those decisions.
I am endowed and I hold tightly to my Temple recommend. I'd like to serve a mission some day, but that is up to Heavenly Father. I leave a great deal up to Him these days. I place my trust in Him and I depend upon Him and He never fails me.
I am in the process of reeducating myself, yet again, for a fourth career, this time in health care. I love to help people and watch them learn to help themselves.
I sing. I cook. I sew. I read voraciously. I love my sweet little dog. I've raised horses and chickens and other livestock in my former life, so I'm comfortable in rural settings. I'm not really a "city" person. I need trees and fresh air and birds and a place to do my gardening. I like to grow vegetables and flowers. I do like to get dressed up for church and special occasions. I'll be wearing scrubs for work, now. At home, I like to kick back in jeans and t-shirts or flannel.
I've never been in a "healthy" relationship with a man. If you are not gentle and kindhearted, I probably won't be very interested in trying to get to know you because I now believe I deserve to be loved and cared about and treated nicely, with the respect and dignity inherent to my status as a beloved daughter of Heavenly Father. I am a very gentle and kindhearted person and I give my heart completely when I fall in love. I'm pretty affectionate, too. However, I am not given to inappropriate PDA (public displays of affection) and am not pleased when someone tries to subject me to it, either personally or peripherally. Having said that, I love holding hands, hugging, and the occasional sweet kiss in front of family and friends.
That's about it for now. If I think of anything else, I'll add it. Please don't hesitate to ask me anything you'd like to know. I'm a pretty open book, though I do harbor deep wells of feeling and thought that I only share with my closest and most trusted friends and loved ones.
Thanks for reading this far. If I don't hear from you, best wishes in your search.
