A few years ago, Oprah and I had a very private conversation and she gave me some advice that I heard but didn't truly appreciate until this day. She said: "stand in the space that God has created for you...but stand in truth." That is all anyone can do. My friend Donnie McClurkin sings a song that I just adore called "STAND." The words that move my spirit are..."after you've done all you can...You just stand." So that's my plan. I'm operating in a place of happiness and joy in simply being able to breathe the air of life and nothing will move me from that place. I plan to stand. I wish to thank all of you for every good wish, every kind word and every prayer that I would find the strength and courage to just be ME. I've now said everything that I wanted to say; and quite frankly when you say it to Miss O...you don't need to say it to anyone else.
What happens next is up to me because I plan to move onward and upward and focus on the future; standing the place that God has created for me.
