I love the outdoors and enjoy the beach, boating, hiking or just walking in a park. I also like quiet time to read and relax. My family is most important to me, especially my children (1 in college and 1 at home) and my mom. I was raised In a Methodist church, but attend a non- denominational church now. God and honesty are an everyday event with me. God has protected and given me so much. I am friendly and outgoing most of the time. I do occasionally have a "shy bone" and it takes me a while to warm up to someone. I love animals, but do not presently have any of my own. I want to get to know someone first and if it develops long term, OK. But just having some time with a friend is most important to me. I am not actively seeking a long term relationship. It could lead to that, but I want to know that it is my soul mate.
