56, Clayton, CA
After reading some profiles that I'd read before I realized that I hadn't updated mine. I have subscribed to CM, on and off, so if someone sent me a message I apologize for not responding (as I was unable to.) I was happily married then widowed Jan 06. It is clear that life goes on and I trust that God has a plan for me, so I was enthusiastic for the future. Yet, as time marches I wonder if finding someone is in His plan so I struggle with that possibility. I love chocolate, Chardonnay, and working out (although not necessarily in that order.) I know that my energy and optimism are gifts from God and value them. I am involved in ministry in my church community and consider them family. How can anyone get through life without them? I am close to own family as well. I have become a grandmother of 2 in the last 3 years. What a joy and a reminder that the chain of love continues. My daughter and family are in So Cal and I'm near San Fran so I often make the trek to see them. Being an informed, active Catholic is what I strive for. Deepening my interior faith is also a daily challenge. I love reading apologetics, EWTN and am currently enrolled in a Catechetical Training program. I long to defend the faith in an intelligent and compassionate way. I value health and fitness so you'll find me in the gym 5 days a week. And heck! we're not getting any younger!
