I am 53 years old but I am generally taken for about 40. Men my age pass me by because they think I'm much too young for them. Nice compliment, I guess. I am a dedicated Christian. I am interested in missions, that is one reason I am an ESLteacher. I have a deep level of compassion for hurting people, especially if they had nothing to do with the position they are in. I am quite pretty and attractive to the opposite sex. Although I am an intellectual, and fairly comtemplative, I can be the life of the party. I consider the things I do though, and am constantly taking stock of my life so that I don't squander it. I am very, very responsible, and there is nothing I would not do for my children. I value family, and love cooking, especially at holiday time - I always make a big turkey dinner and invite lots of people. I am an inclusive person. I love listening to people's stories. I am looking forward to adventure, travelling with missions, and living in other places. I just bought a guitar and am going to take lessons. I am a life-long learner. I just took a silver-smithing course. I like to do beading and sewing. I love to read. I like a good movie. I love music. I like a balanced life, time at home, a house in order, time for friends, time for recreation, and of course, God at the center all the time. I like a lot of time alone to be with Him, so I can listen to His guidance for my life, and my children's lives. Although only one child lives at home, I am still bonded closely with my other two children. I always will be. So, I love God with all my heart, am very intelligent, fairly attractive, happy, fulfilled, loving, and fun to be around. Sometimes I talk a lot, sometimes I just want silence. I've been described as serene. I'm usually described as vivacious, but not in private.
