Prescription for Freedom – Filled.

I want candy!

As I wandered around the store, checking things off my list, finally getting the grocery shopping yesterday, I sang along to whatever the Trader Joe’s radio station was playing.

The class I usually go to (and love) is on Sundays, but since yesterday was Monday… Continue reading 30 Days of Thanks 2014 – Day 25
