“Of All The Hearts In The World… 10

“Of All The Hearts In The World…

…You had to walk into mine.” (Yes, I totally cribbed Casablanca.) Have you ever wondered why certain people come into your life? Of course, you have. I am a total believer in synchronicity. I believe that people come into your life for a reason (not that we always understand that reason)....

April Challenges Bring May Recovery

There is still a post in the Blogging A to Z Challenge to write, one to genuflect about our progress and how the month went. The final encore before the curtain is drawn for another year. When I began both April challenges I thought it would end up being a breeze....
