I love your prompt Gail. I hope you don't mind that I make my own list of 25 things I love about my life right now. (I hope you see it as a compliment) *smile I love your writing. I feel like I really know you and I am blessed.

#13 Their Eyes Were Watching God. Years ago this became one of my favorites.

#14 Me too, with Tovijah.

#18 Girl.. I am about to go get some out of my pantry right now! That is some good sugar!

Life is sweet.
