The Reasons I love Pumpkin Spice Lattes

I love Pumpkin Spice Lattes (PSLs). This year I was at Starbucks at 5:30 in the morning on the first day they were available.  Although I love the flavor of pretty much anything Pumpkin Spice, there is much more to these PSLs for me than the flavor.

I received my biospy results for my last skin check and if I am truthful to myself and to you,  the results knocked the wind out of me. I was expecting nothing. Instead, I got something.

Reading – A New Perspective

Until recently, the correlation between reading books to become a better writer was lost on me. Yes, I love to read. Always have. However, writing went on whether I was reading or not. Suddenly, and very recently, something changed. It was as if God turned on a switch inside me that has opened my eyes,Continue reading “Reading – A New Perspective”
