Loyal, compassionate, honest, hardworking, dedicated, enthusiastic, intelligent, witty, determined. I can be lazy on the rainy do nothing day and sit in the living room with the kids and watch movies all day. We can order in our meals and not get dressed all day. We also get just as busy when we have to do a job for whatever the occasion calls for. I adapt quite well to just about any setting, I am quick thinking and quite creative in solutions.

What/who changed my life and why
My life changed many times in the last 50 years. The single most significant, most life altering event to set in stone who I will forever be is the injury I sustained that left me permanently and totally disabled but totally and permanently fully enabled. I am in a wheelchair unable to walk more than a few steps at a time. I can hardly sit up for more than an hour or two without being propped, but that is a minor inconvenience. I have realized several of my lifelong dreams since the accident. Prior to the accident I never made or had the time to pursue my dreams, I was a workaholic, 80 to 100 hour work weeks. Since the accident, I released and sold out of my first (and only) Christian music CD, got married and have step-children. Made some friends who have taught me a lot about dealing with the human aspect of life. I have learned about applying the compassionate part of my heart that never had time to be used at work. I now stop and really do smell the roses. There are two friendships that I have made that nothing in the world will ever compare to in satisfying the need for companionship and conversation and debate.
