9/4/81: Bey Day

Today is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter’s 33rd birthday so I would like to take some time to thank God for creating her and blessing her with so much talent. I would like to thank her mother, Tina, for teaching her “good home-training”. I would like to thank her father, Mathew, for teaching her “how to love her haters” and for making her run and sing at the same time during Destiny’s Child bootcamp. I would like to thank her sister, Solange, for teaching her “to speak her mind”. I would like to thank her husband, Jay Z, for “making her feel so goddamn fine”. I would also like to thank her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, for increasing the happiness and the drive that Beyoncé previously had and for sharing her mother with the rest of us fans.

And last but certainly not least, I would like to thank Beyoncé for being a vessel of strength and a ray of light in a world that can be so dark for so many of her fans. Thank you, Beyoncé, for singing the words that I am sometimes afraid to say. Thank you for going above and beyond to give your fans the best albums, visuals and stage shows that you can. Thank you for remaining a good person even though you have been blessed with so much success. Thank you for all that are and all that you do. I am so proud to be a member of the BeyHive. I hope God continues to bless you with many more years of success and happiness so that you can continue to bless us with many more albums and tours.
