For Alyssa

Sadly....one of the sweetest gals I know is moving away this week. She has been my fun neighbor that I could always rely on for Friday Night Cocktails. We have laughed together, cried together, debated politics together......you name it, we've done it! Best of luck in New Orleans Alyssa!!! I love ya!

You are Strong

You are Strong....
because you look at life as a learning process,
you yearn to find a better place for you..
You brave the trials of moving away from your comfort zone.

You are Strong...
because you care so much about your kids' education,
because you are a loving, devoted wife,
because you give so much to make those around you happy.

You are Strong...
because you made a studio that isn't looked upon as "normal",
because you touch so many lives because you made that choice,
because you enpower women through pole-dancing.

You are Strong...
because you open up to a neighbor to have some fun,
because you are a always a happy friend that I can rely on,
because you voice your opinions and thoughts to me without reservation.

You are Strong...
because you are caring enough to cry when you are leaving friends you love,
because you're leaving a "comfortable" life to show your kids what you value,
because you are taking a chance to live out your dreams.

I want to know Alyssa. I want to learn pole dancing. I am so sad you are losing your dear neighbor. May you always be neighbors of the heart.
