All I Ever Did Was Love A Man has it All!
AUDIO SAMPLE: All I Ever Did Was Love A Man
It wasn’t easy being a single mother. Sabrena worked hard to make her daughters happy, to give them a solid, secure home. Getting away from her cruel and abusive ex-husband was almost easy—compared to making ends meet and balancing a job with single parenting. But, finally, at long last, Sabrena felt her life was coming together. She had a good-paying job at a department store, two beautiful daughters who were growing up with love and security, and a wonderful friend, “Rach” who was more like the sister she never had. To put the icing on the cake, Sabrena had a man, Steve, in her life that she loved with her whole heart and dreamed of finally holding onto the love she deserves.

It only took about 2.9 minutes for me to INHALE the savory wing but now I’d have to sweat and grunt to burn it off, not to mention the millions of wings long ago devoured that now were converted to fat on my body which I was desperately trying to lose.
