Hi everyone. I'm a fairly simple person. I enjoy good company, good friends and good food. :-) I'm an optimist to the core, and I suppose this is related to my enormous faith in the Lord and His plan for my life. I'm 36 years old, and I've learned an awful lot in my short life. Mostly I've learned to value every day, and to look for good in all things. . . because even in the most tragic events, I believe goodness prevails. I love my life, my family (including my beautiful Golden Retriever) , my job, and I strive to be more God-like with each passing day. ..
