About me

Location Washington
Introduction I am married to a good man, Jeffery, and have four daughters, one son, all married to the best of companions, all of whom are kind and good, encouraging me in spite of my failings. We are “Bodhi and Amia” to our growing flock of treasured grand children. We have a large supportive extended family whom we admire and don't see often enough, and inspirational friends who fill in for them. I enjoy swim classes, walking in the sunshine, biking along the beautiful Columbia River, having meaningful discussions, reading history, biographies and mysteries, improving myself and things, dejunking, simplifying, visiting with interesting people and seeing new places. I am grateful to be an American, a wife and a mother and especially grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ to whom I owe everything.
Interests What interests me? Personal growth and improvement. My husband and family, the stability and success of my country, the well being of my friends and neighbors, and the quest for a more pure heart and nature. Oh, and also, edible landscaping, sewing, biking, reading history and mysteries, and cooking now and then especially since I now cook almost exclusively for an easily satisfied customer, (my husband!).
Favorite Movies Anne of Green Gables, Pride and Predjudice, What about Bob, Monsters inc, . I loved the BBC series Foyles War, and the Netflix series Blue Bloods for characters who show courage intergrity and value extended family.
