A friend shared that this would not be the time to hide my best under a bushel basket. My hunch is it is also not the time to resort to cliques. That leaves the unvarnished truth. I am a widow who married my college sweetheart and never imagined I'd find myself single at this stage in my life. My dating skills are rusty, but I'm a terrific friend and isn't that the first step in any relationship? I love being active and seldom consider the weather man a fair predictor of the days activities. I love my home and enjoy the intimacy of dinner in the kitchen as well as a dining room filled with friends, family, chat and laughter. I can't recall the last movie I saw at the theater because I am not a solo attendee. But, I'm not adverse to curling up on the couch with a movie and a glass of wine with a warm fire in the fireplace. When you add it all up, it's fair to say I'm a romantic/adventurer.
Professionally, I am a teacher who left the classroom for the corporate world. It is a challenging position with both it's perks and it's trials.
My family means a great deal to me. I have always believed it is easy to see the value of a person by the way he/she treats family.
