I think it is hard to describe in a few words who we are and what we would desire in a relationship. It seems everyone wants kindness, honesty, a good sense of humor, affection, walking in the woods, etc. . . So how do you sense what is different insomeone in a short paragraph ?. . . . . . . I remember a saying about friendship of which one part always remained with me, " Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of being safe with a person, having to neither weigh thoughts nor measure words". . . . Are you a man that wants to know really know a woman and be truly known by a woman?. . . . . I hope for a man who has Christ as his first priority, that believes that God is who He says He is and can do what He says He can do. Someone who truly wants a partner to walk though lifes trials and joys together. And who can laugh with me and at himself. . . . . . . . . . My youngest son(17) is handicapped and lives with me full-time. . . We come as a packaged deal. He may be able to live independently someday, he may not . He is a joy to me and I have learned much from him. I have learned to be patient, and put his needs above my own. . . . The reality is that I look for someone that is patient, willing to be inconvenienced with a kind, joyful attitude. I admire humility. . . . . . . . I find joy in helping someone that has a need . I love creating a warm inviting home, being affectionate, and I am a good listener and encourager . I enjoy cooking, gardening, and working on my house, riding my bike, walking. I like to read about spiritual growth, healthy eating, investing, prophecy, and current events. I enjoy visiting new places. . . . I love music, especially worship music. I am a singer. . . . This is just the beginning of who I am. . . . I prefer to write those that have a photo.
