I am fairly new to the site and would like to meet people and strike up friendships and interesting chats.
Hobbies: seashell collecting, reading, poetry, going for walks. talking on the phone, spending quiet time with my husband and visiting with family and friends.
Children: I have 3 children a son 33 yrs old, 2 daughters ages 31 and 28. I do not see my daughters nor do I talk to them. That sounds a bit cold and here is the reason why. Since I have moved to this particular part of Florida I have lost contact with them. They both have moved and they did not leave a forwarding address or give anyone their new phone numbers. We see my son about twice a year and we are always on the phone. I have tried all types of computer searches, called the police in the town they lived in and no one has any information about their whereabouts. Doesn't mean I am going to quit looking for them!
Married: My husband and I met about 7 yrs ago in a little town in NY. Funny how things happen when you aren't looking for a relationship.At the time I met him I had sworn off relationships and just was content to be a lone. So anyway, my best friend and I went out for lunch and for some reason I told her I just had to go into the store across the street because I was going to meet my future husband there. Now, she knows me quite well and knew I had a horribly abusive relationship for 7 yrs and I just didn't want in a relationship again. SO she thoughgt this was odd for me to say. We went into the grocery store across from the restaurant and met my husband! Within a year he had moved from New York to Pa, I became extremely ill from black mold and had to move to a warmer climate. So we moved to Florida in 2005 and got married in Novemeber 2008. I am very happy and enjoy being married.
Pets: I was a boxer breeder when I lived in PA. So I always had a lot of dogs. I love the breed and enjoyed being a breeder very much. Now I have 1 male boxer and 1 female pit bull who is 1 yr old and they had a puppy who is 4 weeks old. Now I never really wanted a pit bull due to all the negative press. Sophie is my little red nose pit. She is beautiful, loving, loyal and so much fun. Having her has really changed my opinion about pit bulls. It is the owners who either make or break a pet. I believe violence begets violence and love begets love. My dogs are so spoiled and I can't wait to spoil my new puppy!
Religion: I am a Catholic. I love my religion but I don't like the preaching for money from the pulpit. I watch Joel Osteen weekly, have read his books and really listen and hear what he has to say. God has blessed my life in many ways. I was injured on my job about 10 yrs ago and was in a wheelchair for 5 years. The doctors didn't hold much hope I would ever walk again. Many prayers and with the help of my husband I now walk and drive. I use a cane when I feel weak or have a problem with my legs. Now I turn all my problems over to God and he always answers my prayers.
Time to walk my dogs! HAve a nice night!
