i have lived through the best of times and the worst of times. through both i have grown in experience and maturity. my faith has never waivered. i am a simple man but i am not a simple minded man. i am looking for a woman who is willing to grow, love and enjoy all that god and life has to offer. i am looking for a good conversationalist and a good listener. my view on life is simple--- everyday when we awake, we have the opportunity to be "great" and if at the end of that day we fall short, then we must be "grateful" and look forward to tomorrow.
