Greetings! I may be a widow, but I am still young with much life to live! I was married 11 years before my first husband died. From that relationship came two incredible children. My life practically revolves around being the best parent and role model that I can be for them. I do my best to be an active participant in their lives, and in life all around. I hate the idea of missing out on living while granted this short time on earth. So, I try to be active, enjoy working in my small garden, chatting with neighbors on summer evenings, and taking time to inhale the essence of life!
I am very active in my faith in God. There is no denial that it is he who keeps me alive and striving to LOVE LIFE! (Yes, I did put that in all caps because I yelled that phrase! I LOVE LIFE!) Like many people, I have seen some very dark moments in my life. Yet, I am ever determined to press on, love Christ, and find the beauty and joy in the things that surround me. Jesus is always close to me through both the best and the hardest moments of life. I fear that all this makes me sound far more serious than I really am! While I do hold my relationship with Christ close, I also enjoy spontaneous, moment-to-moment living.
I love to laugh, and enjoy life in the moment. Most friends would classify me as optimistic and somewhat outgoing. I do put a lot of effort into focusing on the things around me that are positive. However, I am secretly an introvert. I need quiet time away from the hubbub of life outside of my house. Shoot! I need quiet time away from the hubbub that exists inside my own house at times! (LOL)
Finally, I seem to have an insatiable desire to learn and experience life. I am constantly reading about natural and/or alternative healthcare, working to improve my own physical well-being, and looking for ways to enjoy nature.
