NO PLACE LIKE HOME 

It doesn't matter what they say, I tell you, there's no place like home! Now when I say that I mean theres nothing like a Mother's or Father's love, if they were your main source of your umbilical cord connection. In other words; I'm speaking of who ever was responsible for nurturing you in love in any type of maternal or paternal kind of way. 

Funny, for several months now, I've been feeling like I needed to be in the arms of my mother. It was such an over whelming feeling that I just couldn't seem to shake and I even found myself waking up in the night and sitting on my couch with the longing of just needing to lay eyes on her, even though I speak to her every other day. 

Well, I tell you...the Universe has it's way of giving you what you're longing for in some way, form, or fashion.  Here I am on St. Patrick's Day in the presence of my Mom.

As an only child, I grew up being a very independent woman and so, I said that to say that I also moved away from home at a the very early age of 18. With that I also started to travel quite a bit and so being away from my Mom and sometimes not seeing her for several years was not foreign to me. 

So fast forward back to this feeling of needing to see my mother, I learned that she too was longing to see me.  The problem is, neither one of us made it clear on how we wanted to see one another to the Universe and as God would have it, my Mom ended up in the hospital having emergency surgery.  That's not how we wanted to have to get together, but that is what brought us together again.  

I'm grateful that my Mom is a warrior and she has bounced back as if nothing has happened once again.  She did the same thing when the good Lord helped her to defeat cancer 11 years ago.  We are both happy that our longing to see one another came to pass and we have some time to genuinely love on one another and to treasure the moment. 

We want to say THANK YOU to everyone that has been instrumental in her speedy recovery.  We Love You! Hugs

WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE? 

Where has the time gone? I can hardly believe that we are coming up on your 4th year since you made your transition, it seems like yesterday and frankly I still feel as if I'm dreaming.  I do know that I miss you like crazy, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about you in some form or fashion. We even had the same teeth and smile. Lol  

One thing is for sure that, because I'm walking in your footsteps as an entertainer, being on my European Tour has helped me a great deal to cope with how I'm feeling about you not being here. 

God has allowed me to be tuned into all of the signs letting me know that you are ever so present with me even on the European Tour, so much that it has put a big smile on my face.  You were such a funny man, and I learned that in your last days. We would laugh so hard until we cried, and it certainly made me aware of where my comedian side came from.

Why, just last night at Porky's Blues Club, I was given the room number 111, which is your Birthday November 1st, :-) along with a number of other incidents that was without a doubt it was you.  I miss you Mr. Jackson, and I thank the Lord for letting this time be easy on my heart with the signs and wonders of you being so far yet so near.  Where has the time gone?

I LOVE YOU, I MISS YOU, and "It's Just That Simple" Hugs

LATEST NEW'S  


As of November 9th, 2018, I have been picked up by the Eau Inferno Entertainment Group.  Now you may ask, "What does that mean"?  Well, this means that I will no longer be handling all of my major bookings. 

I'm really excited about my decision to allow the EAU INFERNO Entertainment Group to handle my bookings.  By doing this, it will free me up to concentrate on other aspects of my career.  It's not easy to make such a decision, especially when you are accustomed to wearing so many hats.  

I welcome this new endeavor and I'm looking forward to all of the new adventures coming my way, and I'm so elated to be part of their Artist Roster.
