At times, as I stand before the mirror, I see my strength. I see all the things I've endured to be who I am today; to be where I am today. The scars, internal and external, remind me of pain in which I've stood. Storm after storm, fire after fire, flood after flood, I kept on climbing this mountain that life set before me. As I'm happily tooting my own horn and admiring myself for the strength that exists in my body, I arrive at the mountain top, only to see her. She's already there and has been there, awaiting my arrival. My blessing, she is. My reward for finally getting it right! When I look a her, I become puny. For I see in her a greater strength than mine. I'm humbled, yet ecstatically grateful!
I see her path, her struggle, and her scars. I see places in her past where she stood strong through the things I gave in to. I see how much sooner I could have been here, if only I had followed my heart to begin with. Then, maybe she would not have had to wait so long for me to show up. Thank YOU GOD, for this woman!! Thank YOU GOD for setting her aside for me! Thank YOU GOD for the blessing of Crimesha Evette Cutts!! 43 years ago today, You blessed this earth with magnificence, and a beauty only known to me, my heart, my soul!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE ABSOLUTE LOVE OF MY LIFE!! I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND FOR ALWAYS!!! YOU ARE MY PINNACLE GIRL!! ATOP THIS MOUNTAIN, WE WILL STAND FOREVER!!
