    Continuing in the spirit of our Sister Praise chat on 2/5/07, I figured we'd keep the celebration going. :jump: Each week, a sister from Destee.com will be selected to shine under our "Sister Spotlight". :new:

    Our spotlight has searched the Destee.com forum, and has decided to first focus upon.....drum roll please.... :band:
    :hearts4: DESTEE :hearts4:

    Yea!!!!!! :congrats: Sister Destee!!! Take a bow!! :bowdown:
    The choice was a no brainer, really, who better to be the first chosen than the creator of this site. :great:
    Okay sisters and brothers, here's a golden opportunity to sing this sister's praises. No positive thoughts are too small to mention. Could be a kindness that she bestowed upon you, an opinion that she posted, perhaps something she mentioned in the chatroom that inspired you or made you laugh, maybe something about the site in general. You get the idea. And Destee, toward the end of your week's reign, you get to choose the next Sister in the Spotlight. :couple:

    Okay family, let's hear from you!!!!
    :grouphug:

    :wave: Okay, I'll start it off. Whenever I have complimented Destee on starting this site, she tended to downplay it. Don't get me wrong, she appreciated the compliment, but said that she did not envision what it has become. Well, I don't think anyone actually can see how far a concept can grow. And Destee didn't just dream about her vision, her vision was realized. Through much study, and a whole lot of faith, Destee applied what she learned about web site design and created Destee.com. For those of you who haven't read this already, you can read the full story of Destee's beginnings here: http://destee.com/forums/view_aboutus.htm

    So, Destee, thank you for providing us with this roof for all these years. Can't always be easy, but, you've paid the mortgage every month, and remodeled when need be, lol. Here's to ya! :toast:

    Big Shoes To Fill

    They were the biggest shoes I've every seen
    Big, Beautiful, and bold

    Walked many paths, yah sho could tell
    from the scuff marks on it's toe

    They trumpled through stormy weather
    and triumphed over ruff terrain
    They shuffled on down easy street
    and hustled back up it again

    They battled with broken glass
    got scrapped by granite grounds
    a time or two its hills broke off
    and still they wouldn't slow down

    They jumped over huge hurdles
    walked circles in the rugs
    They even flew up in the air
    and landed on some butts

    They've been kicked and step on
    shoved and pressed on
    pushed and pulled on
    but yet still,
    glossed and shined on

    They were the biggest shoes I've every seen
    Big, Beautiful, and bold

    I took one glance at the source of it's stance
    and it melted me all inside
    The most beautifullest person I've ever seen
    the very essence behind the strides

    And there was no doubt about it
    As her presence did reveal
    They were indeed some big shoes to follow
    and even bigger ones to fill


    Love you Sister Destee!:kiss2:

    words can't express the worthy love of Destee and everything she has
    given and bring to us collectively daily......all the love and praise not enough
    to capture destee in her full essence but one thing for sure she is heavenly
    touched and gifted and means more then she may ever know .

    I love you destee

    Woman was made to Love

    "A woman beautiful like a moon of silver in the sky,
    Shrouded by a golden sun, stars twinkling in her eyes.
    Hard-hearted men will learn, Wallah!
    Woman was made to love. Sehah!

    Peace and Blessings to the Sista who brings forth the light of truth, the balance of justice, and the realm of happiness and peace.

    With All Thy Getting Get Understanding!

    :spinstar: DESTEE :spinstar:
    Queen warrior
    of the
    "Week"

    What can I say that's positive about this beautiful Queen? ...let me :thinking: for a second....
    Okay, Okay ...here we go,
    uhmmmmm....I had it a minute ago...wait! ...
    it'll come back to me:thinking:
    whoaaaaaa ...smh ...this ain't good, taxing my brains like this!
    Here we go, yeah...I do recall a awesome thing she did, yes:hot: it shook the UNIVERSE ...yes it did:hot:
    Ohhhh ...wait! ...that was me.

    Well ...back to the drawing board! ...this is so embarrasing
    I've been in this thread for over 24 hours....
    and I'm very, very tired, so for the time being...
    I manage to dig up one of her

    Pieces

    and reply to it,
    then...
    Back to the :thinking: tank for me.​


    Sister's & Brother's
    Altho we never met, yet we meet every day
    each and every night on my knees I pray
    that we will continue to heal each other
    to stand firmly on ground as sister and brother!

    I been on this site for over 3 years...
    you cried with me through all my tears
    drove away my most deepest fears,
    You certainly earned ...our joyous
    :spinstar: CHEERS :spinstar:

    I love you​
