In A Nutshell
Hmmmm... I am an (partially) empty-nester, my kids are off to college and come home for breaks. I spend my time staying involved with family and friends, attending church with my parents, and volunteering in community activities. I also serve as treasurer for a couple of non-profits.
I love sports, and will watch just about any football game (mainly NCAA) and NBA. I've been whitewater rafting, sky diving, mountain hiking, and enjoy snow skiing.
Weekends are spent with family or friends, and I like to attend spiritual groups and functions. That keeps me out of trouble!
I enjoy working out, on the treadmill most days, along with weights and stretching. Considering adding yoga this Fall. This year I participated in the OKC Memorial Half Marathon along with my youngest daughter. That was the COLDEST day ever!!
Overall, I like to be active. It seems like its an ongoing process, but I believe I am making progress.
Bottom line for me-stay in gratitude and close to God and everything will work out the way it is supposed to. Nothing happens in God's world by mistake. :)
The One I Am Looking For
One of the things I have learned is that people show you who they are the first time you meet them. Always believe them. The other lesson I have learned is that people will forget what you said and did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.
I look for moral integrity, kindness, intelligence, sense of humor, faith, confidence, and generosity.
I'm also looking for someone who has the same interests, has a positive outlook on life and people and who treats others with kindness.
ONLY LOCAL, and someone who has the same energy level and interests in common.
I'd Just Like to Add
What makes me stand out?? My friends say I am strong, and I deeply love and care for my family and friends. I have always been willing to try new things.
Over the years I have worked hard to better myself through education, and (hopefully) passed those traits along to my children. Education and certifications took a lot of hard work and grateful for the outcome.

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
I enjoy my family, and all the quirks that make us us. I realize that they will not always be around, so I try to focus on the quality of my relationships now. I never want to be too busy to take time out for my parents or kids.
Nature and Outdoors
The mountains of NM are my favorite, then the beaches of FL. There is something magical about the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. I recently spent the 4th of July in FL and loved the white beaches. My favorite part was sitting by the Gulf at night, in the dark, and watching the moon reflect off the water. I am so humbled by the majesty of the massive body of water, and all the tales it holds within.
Religion and Spirituality
My faith and relationship with God are my priority. Without faith, I really don't have anything else. God has been very good to me and has provided a life that I could not have imagined in my wildest dreams. I am so grateful for my life, and the support of my community.
