…To Sweet MELISSA…

…Mmm Hmm…

…I’d Been Meaning To Do A Little Blog Post Of This Song…

MELISSA

by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…For A Few Months Now.

You See…

…In MY Life…

…I Have My Own SWEET MELISSA.

I Actually Refer To Her As MISTRESS MELISSA A Lot Of The Time.

πŸ˜€

MY MELISSA

…Has Been A Part Of My Life Since 1998.

That’s When We Both Graduated From High School…

…And When She And I Both Entered The United States Navy.

We Met Each Other While Attending…

THE DEFENSE INFORMATION SCHOOL

…Where We Both Studied PRINT, PHOTO, And BROADCAST JOURNALISM.

She’s My Soul-Mate.

She’s The Best Female Friend I’ve Ever Had…

…And Likely Will Ever Have.

After We Both Graduated From Journalism School…

…We Sadly Lost Track Of Each Other.

She Was Stationed Overseas…

…While I Went To Washington State, And Served Aboard The U.S.S. ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

However…

…Nearly A Decade Later…

…She Found Me!

(Thank You Internet!!!)

She And I Have A Very Special Bond.

She’s One Who Understands The Hell I Went Through, In Regard To My Naval Service.

She Went Through Her Own Personal Hell, Also, And I Think That Made Our Bond That Much Stronger.

Now…

…Just To Be Clear…

…NO…

…NO We Never Dated, Or Anything Like That.

It Was Never That Kind Of Relationship.

But She’s My Woman, Nevertheless.

She’s My Navy Sister.

I Do Love The Girl, With All My Heart.,,

…And It’s Impossible For Me To Listen To…

The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…EVER…

…Without Wanting To Hear This Song…

MELISSA

Period.

I Wish I Could Describe The Bond We Share…

…But I Don’t Think It’s Really Possible.

She Does Mean The World To Me.

She’s My #1 Chick.

And I Love Her Very Much.

So…

…This Blog Post Is Solely Dedicated To Her…

MY MELISSA

…Without Whom I Think I Would Have Lost My Marbles A Long Time Ago.

As I Said, She’s Been Part Of My Life For Almost 15 Years, Now.

She’s The Finest Example Of A Kind, Caring, Loving Human Being I Know…

…And I’m Very VERY Pleased To Be Doing This Post For Her.

I Sincerely Can’t Wait To See Her, Again.

It’s Been Far Too Long Since We Shared Some Quality Face-To-Face Time…

…But I Can Still Call Her, Or Text Her, Or Email Her…

…And Can Do So Anytime I Please.

She And I Have The Ability To Totally Open-Up To Each Other In Conversation…

…And I Never Have To Worry About Feeling Insecure When Doing So.

That’s What Having A Soul-Mate Is All About.

Someone You Can Always Run To When Things Get Too Crazy, Or Confusing.

And Like The Gypsy In The Song…

…When I Need To…

…I Can Always Run To

MY MELISSA

…Anytime.

πŸ˜€

Much Love To You, Dearest.

And Much Love To Y’all, My Peeps.

Thanks For Being There When I Need To Vent…

…Or When I Need To Bounce An Idea Off Of You…

…Or When I Just Need To Talk…

…Whether It Be Important…

…Or Just For The Sake Of Talking.

πŸ™‚

Y’all Please Take Care Of Yourselves…

…If Not For Yourselves…

…Do It For ME!

πŸ˜‰

Catch Ya Later, Kiddies!!!
