A little about me...
I have a quiet personality. Sincere, honest friendships are important to me. I have a good sense of humor, like to laugh and have fun, although i can't tell a joke. I seem to miss the punch line. I am easy going, I take pride in my appearance and my accomplishments. Family is always first. I have 3 grown children and 3 wonderful grandchildren. Nana is my favorite name.
Compassion and integrity and faith are important to me..
I have a wide variety of interests and am always interested in new adventures and ideas. I enjoy reading tremendously. I like going to plays,concerts, I enjoy the arts, museums writing poetry,painting, scrap-booking. I like sightseeing, going to flea markets and yard sales. One never knows what you might find. I like hiking, the outdoors, camping and more. I am trying to improve my photography skills.
I am a recent retiree looking for new friendships, and new adventures. I value education and am taking some fun type classes. I am also involved with several organizations doing volunteer work.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a gentleman who will treat me like a lady. Ideally a person who has a strong faith. He does not have to share all the same interests as me because diversity and individualism are important. . Someone I can connect with on all levels - socially, intellectually and spirituality. I like romance and romantic gestures. Laughter is important. I like a person who can laugh at themselves first and foremost. Compassion and integrity are important to me. Below is a portion of a poem I would like to share. MAY WE ALWAYS PRECEDED EACH LINE
I'd just like to add...
be able to marvel at the music of the birds chirping the early morning doves the rooster crowing as he welcomes each new day
be surprised and awed by the beauty and richness of color as the sun sets each day.
feel the breeze as it bends and sways the branches of trees. May this breeze remind you of flying kites, the smell of clean sheets drying on the line, tall fields of grass and wild flowers swaying.
May you always reap the joy of building sand castles, feeling the warmth of the sun on your back!
be able to feel the richness of the soil beneath your feet, the dew drops on the early morning grass and not worry about getting your feet wet and dirty
May blowing bubbles children's smiles cotton candy and butterflies always fill your hearts with fond memories
May you view life through the eyes of a child filled with wonder and amazement seeing only the possibilities.
take pleasure and relish in the quietness of silence! See the beauty and magic of a first snow fall, have fun building a snow man
the word :forgiveness always be within reach
sharing an ice-cream cone or using your fingers to lick something yummy always come easily to you, bringing warm smiles and a magical feeling
