    The story of a soul unfold

    Walking down the southen dirt road not sure where her feet
    would lead too but surely she knew the path of direction and
    the setting of her mind to have a community in time , She walked
    into a broken playground and saw many playin not sure what to
    say or do and one guy said hello took her hand welcome her to
    the poetic land she smile and watch and one day three years ago
    she watch how many felt took heart and made up her mind
    inside the beginnings from the love of her heart a sweet child of
    her's name Destiny gave her the wonder of choice and the birth of
    DESTEE.COM........she grap a few hands and took this walk not
    sure or a clue and started a community where their was so few
    i would like to call it the MAGNIFICENT 7 seven i was one of the few to see it all Destee start to build brick by brick ,stone by stone laying a foundation and it was well she smile but still troubled .
    Destee then later open doors for all kind of reasons and likes
    from poetic playgrounds to quiet flowz rooms of mental play to
    rooms of prayer a chat to harbor friends the house grew and
    became a home still she was working her mind racking late
    nights and many worrries she smile continue but yet trouble
    she then gave birth to a Team she called Moderators , me back
    then was so humble and going what i love and that was given Love to every face cross me and one day came to suprise before me she invited me to her chambers O' how i remember that day
    by then was well over 100 members strong so happy in all
    Destee took me in under her wings to join a Team to help keep
    the building clean and safe i humbly accept as we continue to
    grow rapidly to over 500 members jobs was more harder, This
    one Nubian Queen name Destee continue to strive on making
    magic by a whip of a wand giving a birth to a poet of a week theme too making new ventures a heart of love and a soul of hope.
    She spent many many long hours , days and weeks even months
    she worked and worked until her hands was raw feet so tired
    but she kept going on to the History of times the beauty of a
    home so vibriant and fill it with love and charm
    watch many come and go never knew this day would come
    one day my tears fell to see my Name $$RICH$$ in a galaxy
    of beauty she had name me her first and only MEMBER OF THE YEAR a honor that stands over this very house i tryed hard and worked hard to live up to this honor yes i cryed it was the warmest dearest feeling a heart can feel it was real and Destee
    was fill with gleam still not knowing how far this would go or where the History line may be from the chat she always seek the best so with a join hand from a brutha they gave up the new voice chat // open flow poetry on mic still this Queen our soul sistah the MOTHER of the house yet look for ways to give and bring our shine full of sun as we bloom and blossome as we are today never in my wild of dreams would believe i would make a dream come true i have posted thousands of poems and thousands of replys today this mark a nother piece of History at DESTEE.COM a 20,000 post and a family of thousand well over
    3,000 + and counting at rapid pace the house of few grew to a home of thousands and all to a woman who stood out walked that mile faced the fears of yesteryears and took the myth out

    :love: MY $$RICH$$NESSSSSSSSSSSSS :love:

    WoW !!!! :blush:

    WoW !!!! This is so beautiful !!!! I reminisced, smiled, laughed, heart got heavy, and soul got full, reading this peace. Thank you so much. Wow. Yes, you always have told me that you will be here to the end, you and me alone if it must be. :) Oh Gosh! I remember when i invited you to be a Moderator. I wasn't even looking for any new Moderators, but you were doing EVERYTHING any web site owner could ever dream of! Family, the love $$RICH$$ gives is the very same exact love he gave before he ever became a Moderator. It is in him to do. I've often thought and said, every single web site owner, if they have a community ... they want a $$RICH$$, but there's only one and HE'S OURSSSSSSSSSS !!!!! :jumping:

    Yes, i invited $$RICH$$ to be a Moderator and he was so happy !!! I was like, wow !!!! :) Bless his heart. Prior to and immediately following $$RICH$$ becoming a Moderator, i used to post to every single thread in this forum, welcome every new Member that posted, announce every Birthday. When $$RICH$$ came aboard, he made it so i didn't have to do that anymore, and keep in mind, this is the number one most important thing that must be done to maintain the Spirit that we have here. Giving Love to Everyone. $$RICH$$'s presence allowed me to focus on other areas of our home. I could depend on him totally and completely, and you know what, i never ever had to ask him to do any of these things. He just did them. Many times in the wee hours of the morning, i'd come and there would then be 2 Users on the forum. $$RICH$$ and myself. Unless something is wrong, you never see as few as 2 here. $$RICH$$ has helped much to grow us to where we are now. We're so blessed to have him.

    Yes, for those that don't know. We had a "Member of the Year" award one time. $$RICH$$ won it and in doing so, shattered all hopes for anyone else! :) I can't lessen the consideration by giving it to someone that doesn't at least meet the original winner's contribution ... and we all know, no one has come close when it comes to giving love to every person that walks into this house.

    We've shared so much together, laughs, joys, tears, we've shared it all. I thank God for $$RICH$$. I thank God for his 20,000 post. I thank God for this peace you have written for us $$RICH$$. It is so very encouraging to me. I can get so caught up in the day to day trials and tribulations, forgetting to consider where we've been brought from. If that ever happens again, i will find this peace and read it, allowing it to encourage me time and time again. Thank You My Brother, For Everything!!!!

    I Love You $$RICH$$ :love:

    :heart:

    Destee

    Awww, dang, I am over here feelin so very very warm and fuzzy. I can't count the times I've been grateful to Destee for this site. It is the first thing I check in the morning and when I get home at night. I dunno what I'd do without it. It provides such an outlet and community for me. Thank you, Destee, for your vision and your work.

    Then there's $$RICH$$. A more graceful and loving soul you could not find. I have been uplifted so very many times by your words of love to me, brothah. Thank you for being you.

    Here's to the rest of the fam. :toast: Much love to ya. And thanks for taking me in.
