I'm a high-energy woman of God looking to have a good time getting to know just the right person. If it blossoms into something romantic-excellent. If not--another friend in the quiver is a beautiful thing. I enjoy watching hockey, traveling, reading, time with friends, and especially time with family. My faith comes first, my two amazing (adult) kids and other family comes next and then--my career as a teacher. God has blessed me with great life experiences and provided the opportunity to bring me to my knees more than once. He's taught me more about being humble and not being judgemental in the last 4 years than many people learn in a life-time. My values are conservative and traditional, my politics is prayer-filled and my passion is people--especially kids. My heart is happy and I'm very content with who I am. Striving daily to do what God wants can sometimes be challenging but it's certainly never boring. Life with me = never a dull moment! Oh, you need to like dogs--at least one--(Bear) and cats (Howard Dean, so named because he's really goofy but very lovable).
