I am a very laid back, down to earth person who enjoys spending time with my children and, because life is so short, just making the most of what God and life has given me. I have 2 sons ages 12 and 18 but would love to have more or be an activepartin raising someone else's children. For fun, my youngest son and I visit theme parks to ride roller coasters, our favorite place being Busch Gardens in Tampa riding the SheiKra. At least two times a year we try to make it to Orlando to have some father/son bonding time, and we love going to the movies and just hanging out. Friends say I am a great listener and a friend that they can confide in and help them through whatever crisis they are going through. I am very uplifting and motivating and tend to bring out the best in people and see things in them, they sometimes cannot even see in themselves. I suppose this is because it is easier to help someone going through the storm when you can reach in and help pull them out, rather than being in the middle of the storm with them. For recreation I enjoy helping the community by volunteering through my Church as well as helping people with their financial management skills as a way of giving back a little of the skills that God has blessed me with. I am not motivated by money, though I consider myself to be extremely blessed, but rather am motivated by seeing a person bloom into the special creation they truly are. I would rather allow someone else to enjoy the spotlight and be the one behind the scenes supporting him or her as their biggest cheerleader/coach as I have had my time in the spotlight. I am not intimidated by a career oriented woman nor do I judge a woman who decides her time is best spent being a stay-at-home mom as each person is unique and should strive to find and live doing what motivates them the most. I am looking for someone who understands that my children come first in my life. Having more children in the future is something that I would like very much. I would like to build a relationship with someone based on trust and honesty, as, in my opinion, you can't do anything to change the past so why live life denying it? I am willing to give the world to the right woman but, as they say, nice guys finish last. I'm sure that's pretty clich?, but it's clich? for a reason I guess. I have been burned a couple of times in the past because I am a very giving person. I would love to find the one who I can bring out the best in, but also brings out the best in me, who accepts my children, and who will join me at Church. With God's grace, this nice guy will finish back on top of the mountain.
