You know, it doesn’t have to be February to talk about great contributions from black Americans. Nor does it have to be the holidays to exhort joy. I am thankful. I am thankful for everything I have, and that even includes you. Life is good. Don’t forget that. Sometimes it might not seem that way. That is, in times of trouble, should think of me. Yes, my life is a terrific gift… and you have my permission to use me as your muse. You are welcome, and again… thank you.
