There are 2 directions in my life. As a child I loved to dream of the direction my life would head. Then the other direction is reality and the direction my life has really gone. Nowhere do these 2 directions intersect or even proceed in parallel. I was a spoiled overprotective little kid that only had a firm grip of my Catholic faith. Was I street wise? No! As I grew up I ran into every pot hole, fell for every trick and believed every lie. As I grew up so did the extent of life's complications that were thrown my way. My parents who know me the best really can't believe the adversity I have survived. I realize that my shoulders are expandable and have not reached their full size. The one constant is I still believe in God and am a practicing Catholic.
For the last 10-12 years I have concentrated on making my life simple and quiet. I make myself available to my parents whenever they need me, ( my father just died). I make myself available to people in my life who are in need. I love to help people whose need is honest hoping that my positive impact will make them better Christians.
Enough of the heavy. I have owned my own pizza shop for 5 years now. The part of the business I enjoy most is working with the staff. They are all young, smart, intelligent and full of energy. They make work exciting. Than God because I work 8 days a week.
All my life I have been involved in sports. Sailboat racing, snow skiing, ballroom dancing, roller hockey, baseball, football, dirt bike racing are the sports where I have logged in the most time. Although my body is still quite capable of this kind of activity, personal finances and good practical sense keep me in the pizza shop. I am interested in seeking friendship and with church sanctification, possible a more serious relationship.
