What ever you wanna call it...it all should equal to 36 years. Thirty six years of existence on this Earth for ya boy. And it feels good. Your age is what it is. I'm happy to have seen 36 years and I hope to see a hunnid more years. I feel blessed to be here. Every year I ask for the same thing...a cake and a card. But first...I must give thanks.
Mom and Dad: Thank you for molding me into the man that I am. I couldn't have asked for better parents. Your divorce made me stronger as a person. It warms my heart to see you being friends to each other. Thanks for all the spankings and the lectures...it worked! I can honestly say that you are more not only my parents but my best friends.
Damon and Cara: The best brother and sister that I could ask for. You've always listened to your big brother. I told you both a long time ago to blaze your own trail...and you have. I hope that I set a good example for you.
Eric, Mike, Aja, Tammi, Tara, Marc, Scott, Kori, and Benji: We are cousins only by definition. I say we are brothers and sisters b/c that's how our parents raised us. The bond can never be broken. Let's make sure that our kids grow up and know each other the same way that we did.
Aunts and Uncles: Thank you for the lectures and "heart-to-heart" talks. I love y'all
The Florence Crew: What can I say? We go so far back. So many memories. We'll make some more in a few weeks! LMAO!! Who's got the first round? One love
The SC State Crew: We lived by the creed..."Ballin, babes, and books." And it wasn't always in that order. haaaaa!!! Blood sweat and tears we shed to get the degree...the rings...and in the process, we became men. One love
Lastly...but certainly not least
Mrs12: I dunno how many birthdays that I've had since we've been together. But I'm sure that you'll keep reminding me how old I am. LOL. Thanks for putting up with me 24/7. Love you
Deion, Kameron, and Brandon: You are the best 3 lil boys that any man could have. Daddy loves you and is proud of you.
God: Thank you for all of the blessings that you've bestowed upon me. You have truly been good to me. Thank you for allowing me to see this day. I know that you will continue to bless me, keep me, and guide me...each step of this journey. Thank you for everything. Without you there is no me!
