So here's me, sticking some info out there about my dear best friend! ;) (Hope she won't murder me for this).
My friend Marite (pronounced 'Marie' with a 'tah' on the end) is 44 years old and has never married. She is beautiful inside and out, she is intelligent (brilliant, actually!) and loving and fun-loving and Godly and adventurous and musically-inclined.....wait, let me slow down.
She has mostly been in full-time ministry over the course of her entire life.
She grew up in Mexico for most of her childhood.
She speaks fluent Spanish.
She moved back Stateside, to Hampton, Virginia, at about 10 years old, I believe. She went to Christian school throughout the rest of her undergraduate career, graduating in the Class of 1987.
(We met in 11th grade and have remained BFFs ever since!).
She has a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.
She is also a graduate of Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas.
She is literate and articulate and loves to quote movies and play the piano and worship the Lord and go contra-dancing and write letters (yes, REAL handwritten, sent by U.S. postal delivery LETTERS!).
Here's one Very Important Detail: Marite really, really wants to have babies. She loves children and longs for her own---she would be an AWESOME mama to some children who may have lost their mom, but she would also really love to have her own babies if possible. This is a biggie!
I love this woman!
She is amazing, and she deserves an amazing man who LOVES THE LORD first with ALLLLL that he is, heart, mind, body, soul....because that is the only way he will love her the way Christ does.
If you are interested in communicating with my friend, let me know! I will ask her how she would like to communicate. I think she will prefer email initially. ;)
Thanks for reading!
