Hello...Hello...Hello, I missed all of you last week because we were too busy celebrating my birthday. I must say it was the best birthday I have had in a long time. I want to thank all of you (who made it out), for coming to my party and celebrating with me. Oh, and the gifts...thank you all for the gifts!!! I love everything!!!! I'm actually still admiring all of them, so much so, that they are still sitting in my living room, so everyday I come home I go through each and every gift bag. Yes, I know I sound a bit crazy, but really this was a very special birthday for me. To the folks that made it possible (Todd and Alton at Crossroads), I'm glad you both ignored me when I insisted I didn't want you to celebrate my birthday in a big way. You guys made me (with my stubborn self) "buckle down" and call all my friends and family to attend, and I thank you for that. Again, thanks to all of you...you made me feel very special!!!!!
You know "on the real", sometimes when you live year to year in a community you really don't realize how many people you know until you bring them all together for an event such as this party. One thing that was very impressive was how well the Caribbean Community was represented, and it's great to see that we are reaching such a broad cross-section of the community. I am very proud to see that!!!
Oh, Todd has some exciting news to share with you. (See below)
People, I am so glad Todd is back. As you can see he is back to himself talking with you and informing you as he has done in the past. Isn't this great! I hope you are pleased that he has found the time to chat with us again. Hum, maybe I can sneak off and take a small break now. (I doubt it though)!
Well, Klassik Productions had a very successful Caribbean Gospel Mother's Day Show. The reviews were wonderful, and people are still raving about this event.
