I love the Lord with all my heart, I have been a Christian since I was 15 years old. I am a person who truly loves life. I am very active and like to do many different things. As for the group picture in my profile I'm the one in the center. The picture is of myself and the group I was with. We climbed Mt Rainier's Glacier View Trail and yes I did make it to the top!) I love dancing and have been taking ballroom dancing lessons at our local YMCA for a little over a year now. I like dancing because it can be very romantic and for all the women who are married it can set the mood for an evening to remember. . . I hope to find someone who also enjoys dancing but I also need the man to know I want to share his favorite activities as well. I love camping, hiking, river rafting, fishing (I can even bait my own hook, but in a flirty moment I might ask you to do it for me). I also like motorcycle riding, but if a ride is called for I prefer to ride on the back, (another opportunity to hold that special guy). I also love bbq's and picnics and long moonlit walks, walking in the rain if it's not raining cat's and dogs that is (hehehe). I also love to garden, and just take road trips even if the road trip last for a few hours. . . I am such a romantic at heart? I am an old fashion girl, with what some could think with old fashioned values but I have a heart as big as the outdoors? I am honest and loyal. I have two adult children who are already married and have children of their own and they are the joy of my life. My oldest is married to an Ethic's police officer who trains other officers at a police academy when he isn't out on patrol. My youngest married a volunteer firefighter who is also in the electrician apprentice program. The grandchildren are an incredible joy in my life? Sitting back and watching my kid's interaction with their husbands makes me think I must have done something right to see them so happy in their lives? Family activities are very important to me as is my alone time. When I first went online looking for someone special originally it was just for an activity partner (a dance partner) but now I know I want more? I would like to meet someone who becomes the love of my life? I was one of those kids that married to young and was wet behind the ears, one that didn't know what love was and what it wasn't. Now I've grown older and wiser and long to experience real love. I love sharing special moments with someone over a cup of hot chocolate or coffee looking out to a river or mountain or beautiful valley or even just the privacy of a living room. . . When camping, I love to sit around the campfire just listening to everything around me, the sounds of nature, the sound of the crackling of the fire! I love to get up early and surprise everyone in the group that I am camping with, with a hot yummy breakfast, and the smell causing them to roll out of bed begging for a hot cup of coffee to help wake them up? There is a saying that says that the eyes are the window to the soul so the first thing that attracts me to a man is those cute little laughter lines around his eyes. . . It's a key I look for to see if he is a happy person. . . I believe that laughter is important in one's life. . . I want a man that laughs and laughs often. . . I was married for 26 years. It ended in divorce, but I do not feel that I carry any baggage. I do carry the memories, but the memories are what gave me my convictions to wait for that one special person that God has chosen for me. Life is too short to be miserable, unhappy or unforgiving. . . I have forgiven him and moved on with my life. . . I'm waiting for the special person that I believe that will come into my life and capture my heart. . . I have been waiting for 6 years for you and have been praying for you all this time. . . because deep down I know you are out there somewhere.
