Get em Kid!
I can still remember the first time we met, from a distance, I am positive you didn’t know that we had met. I was introduced to you by a mutual friend, from a distance, I admired everything about you. I recalled the first time I introduced you to my guys and how joyful they were that I had caught a gem. They predicted great things would happen and till this day you have yet to reach your full potential. You have so much more to learn yet you’re the best since my last.
Sharing you with the rest of the world was the best thing I ever did, I wanted them to see all the great things about you and how you set yourself apart. I know you were appreciative of their reception and would never let the naysayers get to you. Being part of my world, you knew the focus would be on you and you handled it well and for that I have to thank you.
You remember how your ex-click beef me when I allowed you to go in first and your friends felt like I just wanted to show you off. Well, in actuality, why wouldn’t I want to show you off? You possessed all the great things that one would need to make it in life. It looks as if you were designed to do this and God most certainly blessed me with the ability to hand pick you from all the rest, you didn’t have to try out like the others.
Together we spent a lot of hours working on many different things as we try to beat the odds. We wanted to not only get the respect yet be able to manage the bills. I remember the many sacrifices we both made so we could make things happen accordingly, it took a lot of us but in the end, seeing that smile on your face when we finally were able to hold in our hands what we had spent so much time working on. Those moments are precious to me and will never be forgotten.
I know at times we butted head but in the end it was for the best. Every relationship goes through it and ours was no different. I crack a smile now thinking about the times I just had to delete you off bbm just so I could avoid any communication with you. That didn’t work since your sister would always find a way to reach me and help me put things in perspective.
Time came for us to part ways and while it was one of those hard decisions to come to terms with yet maybe it was time to at least put things on hold and clear our heads. How I sometimes wish we could have just aired it all out and bring in a new voice to help mediate. Looking back at the decisions, we were all wrong despite the many demands and the toll that things took on us.
Just know that despite the fact that we both have gone our separate ways yet you’re part of the family for life. Nothing changes the admiration and respect. Go get ‘em kid!
