I have to somehow pull off the next few days. I cannot fault on my marathon especially now that there are just 3 days left.!!!! God, be with me!!!!!! :-D My childhood friends have come over for the weekend and I am enjoying cooking and baking for them. They are relishing it to the core. Cracking jokes, pulling legs, screaming and yelling at one another, life seems heavenly!!! These are the moments to cherish and I do feel blessed for all the abundance in my life.
