I sit with and listen to her story of where she has been, where she is now and where she wants to go.
Isn't it funny how powerful our senses can be? My family takes a trip to the Tennessee mountains every fall, and you can't drive very far up there without seeing a pancake house. The smell alone puts me in a good mood. Who can pass up the scent of crispy bacon, cane syrup and stacks of buttery, fluffy and warm silver-dollar pancakes on a cool mountain morning?
It's often the little things that bring out the worst in us, isn't it?

Jerron Seymour ran for a 13-yard touchdown with 2:53 left, and Vanderbilt rallied from a ...
ATLANTA - Vad Lee ran for two touchdowns and added a long scoring pass, Zach Laskey ran for three touchdowns and Georgia Tech rolled to a surprising 56-0 rout of Syracuse on Saturday.

Of 19 players on the active roster, only seven saw any playing time last season, a year ...
