I've always had compassion for people and enjoy helping others to grow to their full potential.
My family, dogs, and reading.
Play with my dogs.
Drink a cup of tea and hang out with my husband and two dogs.
I have two dogs. My favorite story is one of my dogs was asleep on the sofa and I set my Tea down and left the room for a moment. When I returned to the room my dog was asleep in the same place, but 1/3 of my drink was gone. I lifted up her little chin and sure enough, she had tea on it. She pretended to be asleep the entire time!
