I am a mother, a daughter, a friend, a lover. . I am a shoulder to cry on to those in need. I also have a few strong shoulders to shed tears upon. I am an artistic person - I love to write and paint. I love with all my heart or nothing at all. The simple things in life are the only things worth living for. Life is to short to waste your time. Live fully. . I am down to earth, generous, spontaneous, yet responsible. I deal with things according to how I feel about them, even if it is opposed to what I 'should' think. I appreciate the arts, & consider myself an artist. I have a strong set of values. I need my freedom & personal space, but want security at the same time. I have a true appreciation for nature's beauty. I do not express myself as well through spoken words as I do through actions. I am extremely perceptive, empathetic and genuinely care about people, and can appreciate anyone who does the same. I work at a bank for a living, and make pretty good money. I am currently enrolled with WIU to obtain my associates degree of arts in business. I like to go out to dance and sing karaoke. I also enjoy walks to absorb nature and talk. I like to paint and draw. I love all music, virtually. I am the happiest when I feel loved and when my children are happy. I can find total peace when I am surrounded by nature. I love to laugh. .
