In order to succeed

you must do your very best

You got to have a want to

Look to the stars

which shine so long and… Continue

Dr. Deitra,

I look forward to reading the Women and Hope Magazine. My Mother's Day was very nice. My family treated me with Royalty and for that I was very greatful. Take care.

Hi Bertha,

I had a wonderful Mother's Day. Although I am not a mother, I did talk to my mother who is more than 3000 miles away. I hope your Mother's Day was enjoyable as well.

I sincerely appreciate all of your kind words and the comments you have offered on "Your Weekly Dose of Inspiration." It is your kind words and comments that make you an inspiration.

By the way, I am just reading your comment referencing my earlier post; so, I will add your comments to my blog. Also, once I launch the Women & HOPE magazine, the artist section of the magazine will help artists gain greater exposure.

Make every day a great day!

Dr. Deitra,

I think that's a good idea to post comments of your inspirational messages on your blog page. And, NO I don't mind at all if you post my comments. Thanks, I truly need the exposure.

You are quite welcome Bertha; it is definitely a beautiful video. By the way, I missed you last week and I hope all is well.

Lastly, I want you to know that I am creating a blog for my inspirational messages on the Women & HOPE website. If you don't mind, I want to use your prior comment to post on the blog. I will include your first name and your website address to help you gain greater exposure for your book/business.

Have a great week!
