March 2010 - This is me!
Let's be upfront: I'm not gorgeous, thin, popular, athletic, or rich. I don't have a fancy house, a sporty convertible, a high-powered career, or an empty nest. If you have the courage to read on, here's what I do have to offer:
True beauty shines from within and looks out through eyes warm with love.
The person we used to be is not nearly as important as who we are now, and who we are now is a mere glimmer of who we may become.
The more we love, the greater our capacity for love becomes.
Any house becomes a home when it's filled with family and the Spirit is a welcome guest.
This life, with all its joys and all its bumps, is meant to be shared.
The strongest relationships are built on mutual trust, open communication, willingness to work together, and reliance on the Lord.
Eternity is a long, long time and ought to be spent with one's best friend.
Motherhood has been the greatest privilege and blessing of my life.
The glory of God is intelligence, and the most important knowledge isn't found in a classroom.
A sense of humor makes even the hardest trials bearable.
Laughter is healthy medicine, but even better: Christ is the cure.
Serving Heavenly Father's children is an honor, and no calling is ever insignificant.
Nature is a gift, meant to increase our good health and our enjoyment of this world.
Sometimes we have to slow down to rediscover ourselves and hear the Spirit speaking to us.
The temple is the most heavenly place on earth.
The Lord sometimes gives us what we want, but He ALWAYS gives us what we need.
Now it's YOUR turn! If any of these thoughts speak to your heart and mind, I'd enjoy exchanging ideas and getting to know you. My door--I mean, message box--is always open!
March 2010 - You crack me up!
So, there you have it! Within 3 days I received more messages than I had in the entire previous six weeks! I'm happy to report I have now "met" some pretty nice guys.
I've learned that when it comes to romance, normally level-headed men and typically romantic women change places. The women become the practical ones, wanting to know if a man is a good provider, a good father, a good member of the church. On the other hand, it seems the men want a woman they can romanticize. Not that the practical things don't matter to them, but being practical is their job. They figure if a woman has a loving heart and lofty ideals, all the rest will follow.
I hope they're right.
