My name is Mary. I am a native Oregonian, who has lived in Alaska, Hawaii, Chicago, DC and in many Oregon communities. Now, I am settled back into Oregon life to be closer to family; and, as my 83 year old mother said, "to come home to God's country!"
Today, I no longer describe myself by what I do (work); instead, I seek to experience acceptance of myself and others, contentment and peace...to offer love and encouragement when and where I can.
Five things I can't live without: 1) clean and peaceful surroundings; 2) quiet; 3) books; 4) fabric - I am a quilter; and, 5) diet coke - I'm hooked!
As far as being a guest, I am quiet, tidy and self-sufficient. I am also friendly and enjoy pleasant conversations. I tend to be a rather organized traveler; but, once I arrive, time slows down.
My life is blessed with two wonderful sons, a lovely daughter-in-law and my best little buddy a seven year old Scottish terrier named Molly!
