(Well, someone (my Bishop) was not very amused that I had removed my profile, so here it is again. I love my bishop and will always follow his counsel. :) I've added a few more lines at the end.)
Here's a little bit about me: I am of Hispanic descend and the proud mother of an amazing 10 year old girl. She is my love and adoration! I am very lucky to have the pleasure of sharing my existence with her.
One of the things I love about meeting new people is having a good conversation and spending quality time in their company.
A perfect day for me is being around nature, going to the movies, and enjoying a nice conversation at a little restaurant.
Some of my favorite things are:
Painting-My favorite painter is Salvador Dali, so I paint mostly Surrealism.
Writing- I'm currently working on a children's book idea.
Working with children- I love children and the purity of their hearts. I'm so lucky to work with 23 magnificent little beings on a daily basis.
Traveling- Traveling is good for the soul, so I'm always looking to experience new adventures.
Karaoke- I adore karaoke so much the owners of my favorite karoke lounge place know me by name. My favorite song to sing is currently "Video Killed the Radio Star." It also happens to be my anthem for this year's edition of "American Idol Friday." This is when the kids choose a song to sing to the class. Having 23 6 years old kids sing "Video Killed the Radio Star" is Priceless!
The beach- Goodness, I love the beach, ocean, watching sunsets...No other place manages to successfully center my soul.
I lead a very simple and uncomplicated life and treasure every moment in my life with the utmost gratitude.
I'm looking for a man who is sensible, kind, and honest with whom to enjoy the little treasures of life.
(If I may, I would like to add a little more to this last paragraph.)
Who I am looking for is a man who loves being a family man; someone who loves children, and will love, respect, and value the woman he has chosen to be with for eternity. The last point is very important to me, for I am a very strong and independent woman. I'm extremely loyal, but I also need a man who will believe in my potential as not only a woman but an individual; someone who will not be afraid to encourage me to reach my highest potential in life.
My wish and prayer for my future family is for us to be a big and wonderful family. I want us to spend many times together learning about each other. (Trust me when I say that children are probably wiser than adults. We could all use a lesson or two from children.)
I pray for tons and love and understanding and for us to spend an eternity together.
I pray for big dinners with family and for many vacations together.
I pray for endless days and nights of laughter, joy, and unity.
Lastly, I pray for a mission together with my husband and for many opportunities to serve others in need throughout our lives together.
Allow me to close by saying the following:
This website is very uncomfortable for me to be involved in but after speaking with my Bishop I am excited to continue to give this place a chance. Why? Because, and this is one of my favorite quotes: "What you resist, persists." So I'm going to continue to "Hold the vision (my family). and trust the process (My Heavenly Father). I also want to wish you good luck in your search and remember this:
"You don't need someone to complete you. You only need someone to accept you completely."
