Sappy. Post. Ahead.
This woman was my W O R S T enemy.
I can honestly say that at one point I felt a true hatred in my heart for her. But here’s the kicker. I disliked someone.... I
It should. We judge people on a daily fucking basis with no clue who the person is, what she’s going through, how far she has come, her struggles, her griefs, her losses, her struggles.
This woman is my husband/boyfriend’s/ex husband’s/future “re”-husband’s ex fiancé.
We have fought together.
We have competed against one another.
We have crept on one another just trying to understand who the other person is... And recently... we became friends. I can’t express the amount of closure this has provided me.
It turns out we are so much alike one another. We have the same style, the same favorite colors, love the same bands, both sing and write music, love to perform, both are amazing, loving, strong mothers... I had this urge one day to just reach out to her and tell her I forgive her. Tell her that I’m sorry for any grief or problems I have caused intentionally and unintentionally... I told her I’m sorry.
Over the past couple months we have grown to know one another. We have became friends. I didn’t think that was possible. But I prayed on it. I think she probably did, too, some.
All in all, I love this woman. I want to say happy birthday to her. She is amazing. She is strong, talented, kind, loving, forgiving, and has a special place in my heart now, tomorrow, and forever forward.
Love you, lady! Happy birthday!
