My God, this is practically the first time in three days that I've taken a breath felt my heart beat at a normal, human pace.
This is B-I-G, considering the B-I-G thing that set my heart aflutter on Friday.
On. Her. Show.
Had. The. Pages. Tabbed. With. Sticky. Notes.
And. Said. She. Loved. The. Book.
The book with thoughts I collected from comedian Steve Harvey, and turned into Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man, the best selling tome that's been at the top of the New York Times Hardcover Advice Best Seller's List for the past four weeks.
Steve, for whom I wrote “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man,” did an incredible job, breaking down for Oprah, Gail, and all those who were watching what women need to do to take back our power, make our relationships stronger, and get the guys we deserve. And she even invited him back for a chat with an all-female audience, so he'd have more time to break it down so it'll forever be broke.
I'm so proud of Steve.
And so humbled by the attention and love Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man has gotten, everywhere from The Today Show and The Wall St. Journal to Essence.com and super addictive blogs like Renaissance Black Woman.
Yup, this book, which I’ve written about HERE a few times on MyBrownBaby, is quite the bees knees.
