From the very first day I met her I knew something was different about her . She was beautiful, well kept, dressed nice, smelled good, classy and had a glow that it will be hard for me to explain, on paper, but I'll do my best to give her justice. She had the look that said I could take her home to my mother and seeing her gave me the thought that this woman could be my future wife.(If you are a man then you would understand where I am coming from) To the ladies that are reading this in every mans eyes there is a certain woman that fits him or makes him feel that she is the one for him. All men have certain images or looks in that they perceive are wife material. That is why I believe in my heart that God created for each man a woman and each woman is a mans rib or help mate. But other than the normal stuff that men look for when seeking a mate this woman had that special something I would never forget. What was this special thing or gift that she possessed ? Well she had the ability to look inside me or as my late grandmother would say, she could look into my soul. The reason why I felt this way about her, was because at the time I had a very strained relationship with my parents. Crystal and I were only dating for four months, but were getting real close. One day after work she asked me when was I going to visit my parents. I responded to her by saying never! They don't care if I live or die so why should I visit them? Then she looked at me with those beautiful eyes of hers and said," Because they are a part of you and besides that you are missing something I could never give you. I gave Crystal a very puzzled look and said, " What are you talking about Crystal? Then she explained that every man or every woman has a special link to their parents, even those that has foster parents. She went on to say by your blood you will always be linked to your parents and just because you have some unpleasant feelings for them you should never let that get in the way of being around your family. Even after hearing her explain to me why family was so important, I remain stubborn and refused to go. But Crystal refused to give up, she wrapped her arms and legs around me, then said I will not let you go until you let go of your anger and besides if you can't love your family, how is it possible to love me? As I think back on those moments, I realized that she was right. I gave in, then went and visited my parents. Thanks too her I have a relationship with my parents and I owe it all to her. Its just too bad that when she met me that I wasn't mature and not ready to settle down with a good woman. But as the old saying goes, You never miss your water until your well runs dry. Even to this day I have never met or even seen a woman that comes close to Crystal. To those who are blessed enough to read my true life story, if God has blessed you with the opportunity to be in the company of a good man or woman , hold on to them and never let go. Because if you let them go, you will never miss your water until your well runs dry.
May God bless you always,
