I view my life is a gift. I'm not sure whose idea it was, but here I am.
I choose to live my life as happily as I can by sharing freely of the joy this gift brings me.
I imagine you are also in a body that you didn't choose, living in a world of people that seem odd to you. I'd like to know you. If you have a great appreciation of the wonder and sorrow and insanity and inanity that IS the human condition, you will be very comfortable here.
My LJ 'friends' are free to express themselves with opinions that are not necessarily mine. How else would I learn, if I do not listen and consider?
If you are reading my journal and wish to comment, please share your opinions and experiences in a loving, fun and patient manner. I haven't had to referee yet, and I don't really want to put you in the time-out chair.
If you have knowledge to share, by all means do!! I encourage you to namedrop your sources as you do.
I'm in love with my husband marswalker. We met through friends here on LJ! We live in sometimes beautiful Northwest Indiana, with our Labradoodle and two cats, surrounded by a community that loves and supports us through our latest, unexpected chapter titled "Pancreatic Cancer."
I'm cautious about 'friending' here on LJ as I often write about my family under a filter. Please let me know if you want to be 'friends' but do not be alarmed if I take a while to friend you back. It's just that I'm checking your journal out first.
Words to describe myself...
