I don't know where to start here. There is alot to me, so I won't be able to relate everything that has been a part of my Life experience here and now. I like to learn new things; every day in some way, if possible! I don't operate by Ego, and so, am not attracted to Ego. I operate by Soul or Spirit and am attracted to that in others as well. I have a silly sense of humor: puns and that type of thing; not gags per se. I think it's important to laugh every day; together if possible! Something that I heard, as an unintended pun, during a serious TV report, which a PBS reporter said, was "The problem of obesity is growing." That kind of thing LEAPS OUT at ME (figuratively)! LOL : )
My prayer is that I meet a God-loving man who has a heart to love me (and my tiny pet bird too)! The deepest Desire Of My Heart has ALWAYS been to be a Homemaker in this life, since I was probably as young as age 2! [TO BE VERY CLEAR HERE, because some men have seemingly MISSED understanding the IMPORTANCE of THIS to ME, as being both 'who I am' and 'what I offer' here: A definition of 'Homemaker' . . . A homemaker is a wife who has the SKILLS and ABILITIES to MAINTAIN the HOME, and ACTIVELY FUNCTIONS in THAT CAPACITY within the marriage relationship. THIS IS AN UNSALARIED POSITION, but of GREAT WORTH to the RIGHT MAN! THIS is what I AM SEEKING HERE. I am what I am! So please take that into account if/when messaging me here, so we don't waste one another's time if that is NOT what YOU want as YOUR woman. I don't care if we're rich or poor; live in a house or apartment; have steak or hamburgers, or if we don't 'keep up with the Joneses' or have every new gadget out on the market. I just want to share peace, laughter, joy, happiness, simplicity as much as possible, and real love with a good man that wants and appreciates what I DO and CAN OFFER to HIM! That's it!!!--- THAT'S MY GOAL here--- to FIND HIM!] It doesn't take ALOT (materialistically!) to make me happy; just the basics at least; but it DOES TAKE my being 'ME', being WHO I AM! And being a Homemaker is intrinsically intertwined with that!
I was born and raised in North Carolina in a very small town, much like a real-life "MAYBERRY"! This was a time and place in America where the women role models I saw as I grew up were genuine "Aunt Bees", bringing HEART to their HOMES and HOMEMADE pickles and pies to church picnics. It was a time when you had better get your milk, bread, and gasoline by Saturday evening, because on Sunday ALL BUSINESSES WERE CLOSED to SHOW RESPECT FOR THE LORD with A DAY OF REST as He commanded people to observe once every week. Women and men largely had very different, well-defined roles from each other then, complementary and both equally important. I think there was a sweetness about that lifestyle, and a real need that each had for the other, then. The current divorce rate, gang violence, senseless killings, Rx and street drug abuse, most societal dysfunction that we suffer today, were all very nearly nonexistent in those times with the cultural values in place then. I CAN REMEMBER what that LOOKED like, and what it FELT like, and I FOR ONE REALLY YEARN FOR THAT IN MY LIFE NOW, as our society seems to be so insincere, restless, disrespectful, confused, hostile, dishonest, abusive, uncaring, etc., now, in FAR TOO MANY WAYS! I still like things simple, and sweet--- the plain daisy is my favorite flower, the one famous for "He loves me; he loves me not. . . "; hoping at some point that my daisy's petals finally land on "HE LOVES ME!". I won't love or not love a man for having or not having money; his value and worth in my eyes and estimation will come from other aspects of who he is as a man. Your billfold is not my target; rather a respected and cherished place in your heart and even in your soul is what I hope and pray for. I have no money to bring to the table, myself, but really cherish the basic things I have in this life, moreso than when they came easier to me in better financial times than this. I THANK GOD, NOW, for things like: I have fresh, running water; a roof over my head; a Bible to study; Christian TV over-the-air by antenna since I don't have cable TV; songs in my heart to sing, and praises in my spirit to PRAISE GOD! This, I suppose, is a good start, as a foundation to build on, at describing who I am as a person; as a woman; what matters to me.
I am motivated by love! Foremost, God's Love for me and mine for Him. I get my (self-expressive) joy from nurturing, blessing, helping, teaching/imparting (to enlarge someone's world with new skills and/or awareness that I am able to share with them to their benefit, such as when I 'minister' to someone from my Faith), caretaking (of my apartment 'home'), and caregiving (to my loved ones; whether they be friends, pet, houseplants . . . whatever living things I give care to!). Real love causes anything it touches to somehow thrive!
