I have just been informed that I am a Silver Medal winner and perhaps a Gold Medal winner for the FL Authors/ Publishers Association: The category-spirituality and the book title A TASTE OF CHOCOLATE FOR THE SOUL. I will find out August 8th, at the Awards Dinner if I am a Gold Medal winner.

I am humbled and honored by such a recognition.
