Pam Perry
Hello Pam, wow...
Humbly thank you.
I'm honored sincerely.
By the way, I accepted an invite at a new site (Rich and Rich Entrepreneurs)for me and I saw your name there. It was late, I needed to get some sleep and I was filled in my info.
I really appreciate the Blessing, I'm reading some wrod for the night and listening to prayer tape, busy week ahead and some decisions to make. I just finished watching the Super Bowl.
By the way, I came upon a Writers group network in Woodbine GA, next town from me and will attend a mtg. and do a reading for my Book preparations. As you are doing I am trying to stay positive, productive and active and change some habits of mine that are not conducive towards my goal for 2009.
Thank you again and God Bles
Sincerest
William
