It's not easy to step outside myself and see the big picture of who I really am I've therefore enlisted the help of some family members who are not as modest about my attributes as I am. So here goes, I am romantic, kind, loving, caring, optimistic, fun to be around, honest, patient, loyal, trustworthy and truly love the Lord (sounds like I should be wearing a halo!). I find great joy in my family they are precious to me as are my many friends I am hoping to correspond with someone who shares the same values and beliefs. I love Family History research and follow up, walking (in the rain or not), reading biographies and historical novels as well as the scriptures. I enjoy gardening (flowers mostly), being out doors and just puttering around, I love to cook and can turn my hand to anything from a gourmet dinner party to hot dogs.
