I love to read too and recently finished Dilemma, a book by Father Albert Cutie that challenges the notion of clergy being celibate. Though I grew up Catholic, I’m becoming more Anglican in my thinking.
By the way, on my first parachute jump, I bellowed out the fastest “Our Father” ever. I’ve since jumped five times and qualified as a paratrooper in the US Army.
When I was in the Navy I was enrolled in one of it's toughest schools, the Surface Rescue Swimmer Course, but was unable to complete it when I was faced with a test designed to evaluate who had the priority to be rescued. Even though I failed the course left it's effects as four words are part of my psyche now and forever, "So Others May Live."
Though I lead a life with serious implications, I balance it with a lot of laughs. In fact, if you want a good one – ask me to dance. I swear I have no rhythm.
I also like to cook and that too can have funny moments. Ask me about the time my Aunt screamed at my Uncle to call the fire department while I was making Thanksgiving dinner. For the record, nothing burned – not even the steaks.
On a final note, what I appreciate most are simple things - from watching my dog play to watching TV with a special someone. If you’re a positive, compassionate girl who likes good food (a little on the cooked side!) and good laughs, I’d like to hear from you.
