My mom calls me "Babe," my dad calls me "Toots" (as in short for Tootsie, not the sound a train makes), my sons call me Mom, my students call me Ms. D--- at school and Sister D--- at church, and my friends call me Lisa. Each of those names is said with a certain kind of love or respect and each one brings a kind of joy to my heart. But the name my heart truly yearns for is that special name shared only by two people who share an extra special bond of love, understanding, and eternal friendship.
I am a happy, fun-loving person who enjoys the simple pleasures of life--a beautiful sunset, a good home-cooked meal, a decadent chocolate cheesecake. In quiet moments when other responsibilities are over, I enjoy playing the piano or reading a good book.
My current calling is youth Sunday School teacher. I love planning lessons for these special young people. And most of the time, I learn more from them than they learn from me.
Over the past few years, I have discovered that I can manage life quite well on my own, but that it is so much more meaningful and fun with someone special to share it with. I give the best of myself to those I care about and try to improve every day. I hope to hear from you.
By the way, IM does not seem to work for me. I can send, but not receive. So please send a message if you'd like to connect. Thanks.
