- About Me:
I’ve not been on here in quite sometime. I’ve let my membership expire. If you leave a message, I’m not able to receive it.
I'm a single mom of a energetic and stubborn boy. Unfortunately, I'm currently unemployed due to Covid-19 and have been actively looking and applying for jobs/careers every day. I have an Associates Degree in Business Administration. I've worked for Continental Airlines for 17 years and took early out when the merger happened. I've been with H&R Block for a few tax seasons, worked at San Jacinto College and am an alumni there and my last job was with FlightSafety International. I work hard and play harder. Life is about balance in all things. One must do the things that one must do to live and then it's time to take a break between the must do's and have fun.
I enjoy traveling, cooking, crocheting, taking walks in the country (city life has gotten me down), throwing the baseball, football and frisbee with my son. My son also enjoys all the above save crocheting.
I look forward to exercising again, now that I've had my neck surgery. Doctors said a year before I feel close to what I was prior to the incident; plus, I miss throwing the football/baseball/frisbee with my son.
- LDS singles I'd Like to Meet:
I'd like to meet someone who wants a best friend first and foremost. If I could 'make' my own, he would have a sense of humor, be a mentor and great role person for my child, loves the outdoors, doesn't mind playing games with my son and I, and a sense of humor. Did I mention I like a funny guy, not fungi though!? Someone who knows that each day is a gift and a blessing, thus it is called the present. Laughter and love are so very important. Some people say don't sweat the small stuff, but sometimes it is the little things that count the most. A hug or a kiss as you are walking by just because, a impromptu dance when a song comes on the radio-oops maybe it's on the alexa or echo...times are changing; a favorite meal cooked b/c it was mentioned the day before, a hot bath run with candles, music and bath bubbles/bombs b/c it's been a trying day.
When I was about 12-13 y/o I overheard my grandfather tell my grandmother something so profound that I said I want to marry a man that treats me the same way he does her. What did he say, you ask? She had just come home from hospital after her second mastectomy and had no breasts and no hair. He knelt down while she was on the bed (I peeked in as the door was ajar), and said, "I didn't marry you for your hair or breasts woman; I married you for who you are in here", as he touched her over her heart and continued on to say, "You are the love of my life, my heart and soul. Life would be incomplete without you." I tiptoed away and left them alone. A few months later she died as the cancer metastasized in her body. They never went to bed without saying the words I love you, even if they were mad they still said those three words knowing it in their hearts.
That's who I want to meet. Someone who may still be mad at me, but knows that it's important to say those words as I would to them. I might be mad at you, but I still love you babe!
- Church of Jesus Christ:
The Miracle of Forgiveness; he is waiting with open arms to those who seek him even after mistakes have been made.
When I was young, I went searching for the truth just as Joseph did. I went to my friend's Baptist Church, another's Jewish Synagogue, as well as few others. I read Joseph Smith's story on how he looked for God's church. After reading the same passage he did: James 1:5-6 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed." After reading that, I knelt in prayer and asked for God to help me understand the truth of His gospel. I relied on my mother's testimony that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true, but it was time to gain my own, if it indeed was true. After kneeling in prayer for quite some time and waiting for an answer, I feel asleep. I had gotten up into bed sometime during the night and dreamed a dream I'll never forget. In my dream, I was in the Garden of Gethsemane as I saw him tortured with the sins of the world. A voice inside me said the blood he sheds is for you; you are responsible for His pain, but He willing took on this pain for you and would do it many times over. After watching his body wracked with pain and blood with tears pouring down my cheeks, I was asked to tend to his wounds. I hesitated as I felt so unworthy for such a task, but as I caused His pain it was only befitting that I help Him anyway I could. When I awoke with a tear stained pillow, the sun was shining through the one spot in my drapes that were not closed and the beam of light was on my Book of Mormon, when I heard the still small voice say to my soul, "IT IS TRUE!" I received my answer not only from my dream but that still, small voice; I quit attending my friends' church meetings and went back to my own with the solemn knowledge this is the true church of God.
I might have strayed from the path a time or two, but not once did I say I do not believe!
I don't really have a favorite scripture, but my favorite hymn is #193, "I Stand All Amazed" because I do stand all amazed that he would rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine and still love me.
He is always there waiting for me if I but reach my hand for His.
