Lust for Life

Lust for Life

When Savannah awoke, the room was dark and quiet. She got out of bed, walked to the window, and pulled the curtains open, revealing the light peeking through the individual slats of blinds. She then opened the blinds giving an entrance to the daylight. She reveled in the glorious light and could not wait to begin her day. Savannah was a morning person. As soon as the alarm sounded, she was on the go, never wasting a moment of daylight….

Daily Prompt: Shallow

Daily Prompt: Shallow

When she walked into the hospital room, she saw him there. He was lying motionless. It couldn’t be him she thought, it couldn’t be her little brother. He was surrounded by family, but she asked for privacy. All she wanted was time alone with him, time to say goodbye. She stood at his bedside and held his hand. He felt warm to the touch. She knew he was only there in a physical form, his soul had already gone. She…

I have been participating in the daily prompts, to ensure…

Tea with cream, hold the sugar please.

Tea with cream, hold the sugar please.

Most people love coffee, not me! Both the smell and the taste leave something to be desired. As an avid tea drinker, a few questions cross my mind about coffee drinkers. Besides the caffeine, why do people drink coffee? It seems to me, most coffee is loaded with cream, sugar, and flavors like vanilla or mocha. So, do people really like the coffee itself, or is it all the stuff that dresses it up that they like? Growing up, my…

Savannah’s Father

Savannah’s Father

As a child, Savannah was a daddy’s girl. She followed him everywhere he went. She wanted to do everything he did. She would watch her father shave his face. When he was done, he would splash a liquid from a green bottle into his hands. Then he would rub his hands together and place them on his face where he had shaved. Savannah was caught on more than one occasion, imitating what she had seen. She recalls, the distinct fragrance…

Feeling Alive

Feeling Alive

Today was the first day she felt alive. Her passion, desires, and ambitions, have been lying dormant, inside her. Waiting for the day she would allow herself to become the greatest person she could be. The day, she truly started living.

She has been awakened from her dormancy….

Thinking of Purchasing a New Vehicle?

Thinking of Purchasing a New Vehicle?

The idea of purchasing a new vehicle is exciting. The new car smell, flawless paint, and immaculate interior are all things that are undeniably appealing about owning a new vehicle. Then there is the dreaded car payment. Also, the fact that you are committing yourself to making this car payment for up to 6 years. Am I the only one who feels nauseated when a salesman starts listing figures? I suppose this is what people call buyer’s remorse. Purchasing a…

Have you tried Ibotta?

Have you tried Ibotta?

Do you enjoy cash back on purchases you normally make? Do you enjoy trying new products and getting money back for doing so? If so, I would highly recommend the Ibotta app. Just like most individuals, I am always interested in saving money, especially on everyday purchases. I’d heard of Ibotta previously, however, I didn’t take the time to evaluate it. In June of this year, I came across a positive review for the app and I decided to give…
