  • When someone knows what they want and how they will go about to obtain that want this can be best described as determination.

    Today I describe a woman with much determination. She is always speaking up for what is right and fair. Even when her points may not be fully developed, she continues to speak. Her voice is loud yet impactful. It is sweet but intelligent. This woman will go to the farthest extent against whomever or whatever to make sure she gets what she wants.

    Ignorance is what she does not tolerate. When in her presence, you watch your mouth. The moment you speak of something unintelligent or disrespectful you can expect for this woman to knock you down with her words. She knows her history, her facts, her mind, her body, her soul, and her heart. So the moment you cross either one of those things you can expect a vivid reaction.

    Strength. This woman is everything but weak. She does not back down no matter the circumstances. Even if she does not receive what she wants, her voice will be heard. She is strong in every way imaginable. There is no one that can change that about her, especially not a man.

    Phelps, a voice. A powerful voice. A kind voice. A strenuous voice. A lovely voice. You are a gift yourself and yet you posses so many more. You are talented, intelligent, kind, but fierce. I am stoked that we continue such a strong friendship and I can assure you it will not be ending any time soon. I enjoy your company, even when I am not welcome. When I say you are a voice understand that I mean you are powerful. And that "powerful" describes a countless number of characteristics that draws people near and dear to you everyday. Continue to uphold your voice because the world will truly be lost if it were to go away. I would truly be loss if it were to go away. But keeping it shouldn't be a problem because that is the great person you are. And that is why I love you.

    Here's to another year of being you!
