Last Sunday my dad called all his kids ((4)) and told us that he wanted to take us out to dinner. Afterwards we planned to go see Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Funeral. But baaaaaaaaby after we sat ate, drank, laughed and talked, we were all ready for BED! LOL As bad as I wanted to see his movie opening weekend I was sleepy and tired.

Sorry Tyler. (( smile)) Image result for sorry look

My momma was the only one at the table who wanted to see it THAT DAY..RIGHT NOW. I live around the corner from her anyway, so I told her that one day through the week when I don’t have to work I will pick her up and we’ll go. Even though she wanted to go right then and there, she was Okay with the plans we made.

Wednesday morning. My phone rang it was my momma, I looked at the phone and said to myself I’ll call her back when I wake up. Later on that night, I called her back and her voice was sounding funny (( I’m cracking up as I type this)) I said hey momma what you doing? She was like…… I CALLED YOU EARLIER. I said I know, I was sleep. She was like….your phone was off. I said I never turn my phone off. She was like…. well I called you and it went to voicemail. So now by hearing her voice, I’m trying to figure out what she’s getting at. My momma is never like this, so it was kinda shocking  to me. I couldn’t figure out why she was talking “rough”. She finally came out and said… “We were suppose to go see Tyla (( LOL)) Perry.” I think you left me, went by yourself and turned off your phone. I said momma I would never do you like that. She said I know you, you’ll go off to the movies by yourself in the mornings. I said but momma, we made plans to go together. I said I will never leave you. I told her that my boss called me and asked me would I work on my day off and I told him yes. She was like OOOH. OKAY (( LOL)). I told her that since I was off the weekend we would go Saturday. She was happy.

Later on my Sister sent me a Marco Polo laughing asking me did I leave momma. I replied back and said she must have called you. She said yes, her lil feelings were hurt cause she thought you left her. She said you know you are her favorite. We laughed.

Saturday afternoon. Me, mom, my daughter and Sister went to the movies. MY MOMMA laughed her lil tailed off. She LOVED the movie. She really enjoyed it. She said Joe reminds her of my daddy. My baby was Heathrow. He may not of had any legs, but he can make me laugh the rest of my life. LOL

One scene made me crack up, when Heathrow didn’t have that thing up to his neck and was talking without it, it didn’t hit me that there was no sound coming out of his mouth. And when I realized it, I let out this laugh that had the whole audience laughing. LOL  LOL LOL  Mess me up! That caught me off guard. Tyler is crazy, how the hell do he live HIS OWN LIFE, with all these characters in his head? Brian, Joe off the hook butt, Heathrow, and Madea. As I’m watching the movie, I kept imaging me making a small incision on Tyler’s forehead and looking around in his head at what goes on in there. LOL LOL LOL I really wish I could take a look. He’s so SILLY!

I was mad when they closed the door on my baby Heathrow and made him drop his cake.                              How he’s driving…… I DUNNO LOL LOL LOL

I really hate to see Madea go. But I understand that he’s tired of playing her. I remember when my niece introduced me and my  daughter to (( Madea)) Madea’s Family Reunion THE PLAY. One day she came to spend the weekend with us and bought over the bootleg DVD. My daughter was 12 now she’s 32. She tried to get me to watch it with them and I hated stage plays because of the “all of a sudden burst out and singing.” I didn’t watch it. So when it went off, they played it again and laughed like IT DIDN’T JUST GO OFF. I remember staring at them so hard listening to them laugh loud  like they had never seen it before. My daughter kept saying “momma you will love this man he is so funny.” Momma please watch it!

So that night when they were in bed, I was like let me watch this play. I LOVED IT!!! I LOVED IT! I LOVED IT! I had never seen anything like it. The messages, the singing, the humor. I remember asking myself when they came out to be introduced, where is the LADY? I had to figure out that Tyler Perry was Madea. Keep in mind, I had never in my life heard of him. This was in 2001.

I’m going to miss Madea, but I also look forward to see what Tyler has next for us.

Hey Family!!! I have lots to talk about tonight!! Lets jump right into it.

I’m a thinker, and this is one I’ve been thinking about for a while. Years ago when I was a young gurl before the age of 14, my dad always told ME.. that I had a sister out there. She was his step mothers  SISTER. It was a huge secret back in the day because at the time he was young and still at home, and if his dad knew this, he would have kicked him out of the house FOR GOOD. So the gurl had the baby, but it was a secret who the father was until later on in the gurls life when people started to talk.

For me…. I always wanted to meet her. I’m very close with my siblings and to find out that I have a sister out there was like heaven for me. I thought about her all the time. Asking my dad questions he didn’t want to answer sometimes. But one day he got a knock on the door.. and it was HER. Not only did she come for answers, but it was also told to her that her mom was raped by my uncle((( by marriage))) , and that it was a possibility that she was his child. My cousins (( his daughters)) wanted a blood test to know either way, but that never happened and it kinda devastated me.

One day she called and said that she was coming to Detroit to visit her family and that she wanted to meet up with me and my siblings at my dad’s house. We finally had the meet I PRAYED TO GOD FOR. I got to see her face to face, stare at her, hug her and just Thank God for that moment. But when she left, we didn’t communicate much at all, and when my uncle who she felt was her dad.. passed away…. she made it known that she felt HE was her dad. I was good with that part. Because I Thanked God for us meeting. God gave me exactly what I asked for… and that was to meet her face to face. But I expected more. I wanted to have a blood test taken, and if she was my Sister start a relationship with her,  my niece and nephews. I feel that I was “short changed” in a way. She decided not to take the test , and I had to be good with that choice she made. Its funny, how God will give you the desires of your heart, but he never reviled  the outcome. Thing is, he comforted me during those days after the meet. I cant be mad at him for how things turned out, because he gave me what I asked for… A MEET. There will always be a “what if” in the back of my mind  when I see her post on FB. I love her and Thank God all the time that I got a chance to meet her. 🙂  🙂  🙂  🙂

Which brings me to Tyler Perry.. another person who I always wanted to meet since I was introduced to Madea. I love me some Tyler Perry and the work that he brings to life on stage and on the screen. But since meeting my sister and having HIGH EXPECTATIONS… I’m good. Not that I don’t want to meet him, I want him to want to meet ME. I’m just not good with expecting something so great to happen (( a friendship with him and my sister as well)) and it not happen. If its God’s will.. it shall be. Other than that I’m Okay. I’m going to sit back and let God do this… I’m out of it. It feels natural that way 🙂 🙂 🙂

Why You Mad?? My @tylerperry Response/BLOG

DSCN1619

Hey Family!!!! 🙂 🙂

Tyler Perry wrote-May 27, 2015

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day, and she was explaining to me how disappointed she was in people and the things that they do and have done to her. She went on and on about how upset and heartbroken she was, and has been, about some of her family and friends. She talked about how they hurt her and how she wished they would change and be better people. She wanted them to be different than the people they were.

Halfway through this complaint-a-thon, I asked her to take a walk with me in the backyard. Now, you have to know this particular friend of mine. She hates the heat, and it was a hot day. I said, “come on” so she reluctantly came with me.

We got outside and it was steaming hot. I could see that she was uncomfortable. Nevertheless, we kept walking around my backyard. As she was still complaining about people, I asked her what she thought of my grass. Mind you, in order to appreciate the grass you had to stand in the direct sunlight. She said “Wow, I love your grass. It’s beautiful, but it’s hot right here. Let’s cool off under that oak tree over there.”

So, as she started to walk to the tree I said, “No no, let’s stay here in the grass and cool off.”

She turned to me quickly and said, “We can’t cool off on this grass.”

Right then, I said to her, “But you just said the grass was beautiful.”

“I did” she replied. Then, I asked her, “Why won’t you stay here?” She said, because she was hot and the grass couldn’t cool her off. So, we walked over to the oak tree and sat there.

She said, “Now you see? This is what I needed.”

Then I asked her this question. “The grass was beautiful. You loved it. Why didn’t you get mad with the grass because it couldn’t provide the shade you wanted?

She was confused, so I went on to explain myself. “People in this world, whether they were created a certain way or became that way through life’s circumstances, are who they are. Stop wishing they will be someone else.”

I said, “The next time you get upset with someone because they can’t do, or can’t be what you want them to be, remember the grass. Never get mad at a blade of grass because it’s not a tree. Appreciate the grass for what it is. Let it provide to you what it can, but don’t expect more. Your life will get so much easier when you start letting people be who they are and stop expecting them to give you what they don’t have or don’t know how to give. Just like that grass couldn’t provide shade because it wasn’t made to, some people are not made to give you what you’re asking for. So, stop looking for it. You will be shocked at how much peace you find when you really get this.”

And the last thing I said to her was this. “You wouldn’t be so frustrated with people who are like the grass if you had more people who are like trees in your life.”

I could really go deep into this, but I gotta go back to work. Talk to me. What do you think?

Love y’all. Talk soon

My Response:

I love Tyler Perry’s messages because they always make ME think. I wake up everyday to learn a new lesson, I may not get it sometimes, but trust me.. I FILE EVERYTHING IN THE BACK OF MY MIND, BECAUSE I KNOW ONE DAY, ONE DAY.. IM GOING TO NEED TO PULL IT OUT, EXAMINE IT, AND FINALLY GET THE LESSON.

In this lesson, it took me a long time to get how people were. I use to get mad at people for not acting the way I felt they should act, and I would be done with them. I learned that you have to meet people where they are!!! In this life you’re going to meet a lot of people,  we all have different personalities. When we meet someone ((( IN PERSON))), they are exactly who they act out. That’s who they are…. and its okay… BUT CAN YOU DIG IT? I learned that I didn’t have to stay in that persons life because they didn’t act how I felt they should have. I don’t have to be their enemy, or be angry/mad with them either. There is always a lesson and reason why we come face to face with people who do things differently and act differently. Some people try to put a size 10 shoe on a 5 feet. Meaning, you can’t make people fit into what you feel they should be. Take them for face value,  get the lesson you need from them, and KEEP IT MOVING. I’m so glad that I came to a place in my life where I can get along with ANYONE…. its so crazy because in my 20’s and early 30’s…. Um Um…. NOPE! LOL In my late 40’s…… listen… I come to your life for LIFE LESSONS… not to talk on the phone all day, not to gossip, but to exchange stories and life experiences that we may have that can heal us together, or even make us laugh.

For Example: My Sister Peedie…IMG_2134 is always late for EVERYTHING. It use to BURN me up when we would all meet over to our parents house for pizza and laughs, she would plan the party for 5.. but always be there after 6. She does this  for every function we have. If I say the gathering is at 4, she’ll blow my phone up asking me what time am I leaving, that way she would know how long she has to BS before leaving out her house. LOL.. I use to be MADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD at her. On fire. I use to wish that just one time, she would be on time. When God bought me to really examine this situation that bothered me so much… it BLESSED ME. He said.. your sister has been doing this for as long as you can remember. This is who she is. She won’t be on time, stop looking for her to be. This is your sister and how she does things. Get over it. Then I thought its OKAY.. ITS OKAY…. its funny now, because we make jokes and laugh about how late she’s going to be. I get it. I can’t make her to be a person on time, she’s always been this way. This is apart of her personality. ((( She’s always on time for work tho))) LOL LOL  I no longer “wish” she would be on time… I Thank God that she always shows up  ALIVE AND WELL

Now let me add this… I can call that SAME SISTER…. ask her for $20.00, she’ll bring me $40.00. One day I needed to borrow $20.00 she put a $100.00 BILL in my hand, we were talking so much, when she left, I realized what it was. If you call her for money SHE IS ALWAYS THERE. If you need a ride, she’s there ** late of course lol **, if you need to talk, she’s always there. If you need a favor or anything… she’s there. She always have it and if she don’t she’ll get it for you. God had to me to see that. I learned to look FOR STRENGTHS IN OTHER AREAS of a person, instead of focusing on their weakness. She wont be on time for anything, but if you EVER EVER EVER NEED HER… SHE IS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME AND ANYBODY ELSE!!!! So, after thinking about it…. ITS OKAY… IT REALLY IS OKAY.. that she’s not a person to be on time, because she has so many other things about her that I LOVE. I LOVE MY BABY SISTER.

Crees Ramblings/BLOG

Hey Family!!!

I guess this will be one of my rambling blogs. Yesterday morning I got up and went to the movies. My plan was to see Get Hard with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, then to go home. But after that was over, I decided to see Unfriended. I’m starting to think that no one can come up with good story lines anymore, people are just making movies just to make movies. Now Get Hard was funny, and unfriended had a great message, but we need better writers. A few weeks ago, I went to see I Believe, now that was a good movie. I’m waiting to see Avengers…. my Favorite Super Hero is The Incredible Hulk. I hope this time that he has more time on the screen.

 OMG… I cannot do anymore Bridal Showers, Weddings or Baby Showers this year, until my gurl Rana gets married in September. Those things will wear you and your wallet out!!! Not only do I work on most Saturdays when most are happening, but I cannot afford to do MEEEEEEE.. and these parties …….not this Summer. I’m apartment shopping and Cree shopping. Its my time and as a matter of fact May 1, I’m on a mission to lose 30 pounds by July 1. I have enough clothes to last me a whole summer without wearing twice that I need to get in and LOOK comfortable in. One thing I love about myself is that when I set my mind to do something it GETS DONE. So that’s my new goal for myself.

I was sitting here thinking about Tyler Perry who I LOVE dearly and how on FB you see a lot of people posting photos of their children and new babies. People post photos of their kids report cards, and school friends. They post graduation photos, grandkids, prom, dads and moms with their kids… oh yeah and the dogs. Sharing photos of your family is a wonderful feeling. Makes you feel this certain way about LIFE and the blessing that God gave you. I can only imagine how sad it must feel for him not to do that. Yes, he can he has the choice, but for whatever reason he chose not too, that’s cool too. Sometimes being a celebrity doesn’t give you the FREEDOM to appreciate publicly small things like that. I can see him now, sending photos to close family and friends, making them promise ,or sign NOTES AND DOCUMENTS not to release them to the public. SHIT that must sucks!!!! Of your own child. Ah… HELL NAW!  Wow, I cannot imagine not sharing photos of my Princess with the world, especially when I’m feeling some kinda PROUD OF HER that day. Especially doing the work that she does. I remember when he first had his baby,  the sister of his gurlfriend GB posted on Instagram * don’t know her name* how happy she was about being an aunt and some other things  that she tweeted. Next thing it was reported that she took it down. That’s messed up!! She can’t even express her LOVE publicly about this baby, because who she’s connected too. That’s must be so hard… we’re talking about a new born baby. Babies bring a certain joy to our hearts like nothing else in this world. Ahhh, I felt so bad for her during that time. As far as GB the mom, shout out to her for not sharing, DAYUM now that has got to be even harder. Women love showing off their kids. We feel special, we are proud. This is the day of social media, and YES.. IM THE QUEEN OF PRIVACY ((( trust me, you think you know me.. you have no idea ))) but not to be able to post of your first/only child has got to kill her at times.  Not sure when Tyler will post photos of his beautiful baby… but this is his LIFE -his BABY, and whenever he’s ready to share his LOVE with us.. it shall be done.

The HAVES and the HAVE NOTS

hhn-title

I must talk about The Haves and The Have Nots!!! Tonight was FIYAH!! Tyler Perry wrote that… yeah …. he wrote that!

Veronica is out cold!!! The ICE QUEEN for real. Those lil sneaky smiles had me cracking up. I knew once she didn’t answer the phone… it was a wrap for her husband. Dang….. I guess men really think that way…. if you’re not there for me… somebody else will be. He went in the next room like … baby I’m here. Ahh man, I hope he don’t do it…cause if/when Veronica find out… its gon get UGLY. But it seems to me that Veronica is so gone over the fact that her son is gay, that she can’t see that eventually her marriage could be over. Maybe she don’t care right now. I loved when her husband said… “I don’t know you”. She said this season she wanted to play a more darker role…. she’s playing it too. I love her husband for her tho… man….once a man cheat… I dunno.. hard to forgive that.

Amanda….. that song she was singing.. Eenie meenie miney moe… that is SO spooky to me. Then she skipped around the house.. Oh lawd…. I started to get up and turn ON all the lights in my apartment.  LOL Then she make her eyes go this certain way with this spooky smile. The gurl is good. I think Wyatt got shot. I can’t see her shooting herself. I don’t see where his story line could go after all that work Jim did to keep him out of jail. That was a perfect night for someone to get shot, the same night GOONS came and snatched up Jim. Amanda is going to get away with that one.

But Jan 2015… dang Tyler 🙂

My Single Moms Club Cree’s Blog Entry

259
If you know me.. you know that I absolutely love and admire Tyler Perry. When it comes to his movies and plays he speaks my language. Even though this movie doesn’t come out until Friday March 14, 2014. I have a lot to say about being a single mom raising Neishia. Which leads me to this post about The Single Moms Club. 

I moved into a upstairs 2 family flat, with my best friend living under me. She had 3 kids, and I had Neishia. I didn’t have a car, but my friend did. When she wanted to go grocery shopping without the kids, I would watch them for her, and there were times when we packed up the kids and went together. When Neishia started Preschool, I worked MIDNIGHTS so that when she came home from school she ate dinner, did chores, and did her homework . It was an everyday schedule that we had. 

I loved going to the movies. We would get dressed on Saturday morning, and catch the bus to the mall to shop and see a movie. I remember the day I taught her that whenever you go to the movies, you cant talk. I explained to her that when the lights are off, people want to see and hear the movie, and that it was rude to talk. I told her that I would get her anything she wanted to drink and snack on, and if she had to use the bathroom or ask me a question, she had to whisper in my ear. She caught on real quick, I never had to take her out of the movies for boredom or whining. She enjoyed the movies just as much as I did. LOL Once I realized that she got it.. we went to the movies EVERY, EVERY, EVERY, EVERY, EVERY single weekend. 

When she started going to school all day, I quit my midnight job and started working at her school. I wanted to know the teachers, the administrators, and the students. I was on every board you name. Education is very important to me, and I made sure that she was getting the best of it. By me working at the school, I got her in the habit of going everyday, so that when it was necessary for her/me to stay home, she would “feel some kinda way” about missing a day. Boy did that work *more on that later*.
By the time she started 5th grade. I had moved into a 4 family flat apartment, which I LOVED. I quit working at the school, and started a full time 9-5 job as a Cosmetics Coordinator. That was perfect for us, my downstairs neighbor or her mom who lived directly down the street from us, would walk with the kids home everyday. Not long after that I would come home, make dinner, help her with her homework and after wards we would spend the rest of the evening together. Born on the same day… we were/are very close. 

I LOVED the people who I shared a 4 family flat with. Across the hall from me * we lived down stairs* was an older lady who worked with me at the school before I left and her grown son Lamar. Upstairs was my gurl Yvette * Kim* and across from her was Loraine. Once the landlord fixed up the downstairs apartment a lady name Sonya moved in. We all built a bond so close, it was unreal. I was at the stage in my life where I loved to go to clubs, cabarets, and to see the male dancers. With the village of women that I had in my own building, I never not once had to sit out a function because I didn’t have a baby sitter. I went out 4-5 times a week for years, got up for work the next morning, got my baby off to school, help with homework, had my male company over, cleaned up, AND cooked. I was in my 20’s and I was doing it all. LOL 

There were often days, when we would leave our doors open in the inside of the OUTSIDE door, so that when one of us had to run a quick errand and the older kids didn’t want to come down, I could just call up the stairs to check on them. While the smaller children came down. This is how we took care of our business. You cant possibly take your kids to everything you had to do. Especially when it came to taking care of business. I remember when we had a terrible ice storm. My apartment had an electric stove, but up stairs were gas stoves. Me and Neishia had to spend nights up stairs and make dinner with them because our apartment was too cold. We played cards all day, something we did everyday anyway. Those were the best times to come together. 

There were times when we all went out together, all of us in the building. I would call my baby sister over and she would watch all of our kids, she got paid lots of money for those times. I can’t even count on my fingers how many times we had to come together and make dinner. All of us loved to cook. Only one of us had a car, so we made dinner every day for our kids. When money was low, we couldn’t make it to the grocery store, or when we didn’t have any thing to cook. Somebody in the building had some food. None of us were prideful, we stuck together. We would all get together in one apartment and have dinner together. They use to love my fried chicken and collard greens. Ooo weeee, we had some great times in that building. 

When it came to dating, I never wanted Nesha to meet any of the guys unless I was really liking them or spending a lot of time with them. That was something I took very serious. I even dated her teacher for several years. I wouldn’t dare let her see him. LOL I dated about 4 Police Officers, but nothing serious. Looking back on them…. several were possessive…… but FIONE AS WINE.. UM UM UM Baaaaaaby!!! 

I moved out of the apartment building and into a 2 bedroom house. By this time Nesha was in Jr High. She started 2 years of High School in this house, then I moved around the corner to a 4 bedroom house… which I loved even more than the 2 bedroom. She graduated from High School there, went to college for 4 years… and NOW making more money than she ever thought possible. I’m proud of the village that help to raise her. I keep in touch with them all on FB. As a matter of fact all of our kids are grown and doing VERY WELL. 

I feel bad for the kids growing up these day, many parents just don’t want to get involved with other people children. Its way more dangerous now too, because they have Internet, our kids didn’t have that until they got last year into high school. This is why I must see this movie this weekend. Its going to bring back so many memories of how I raised my daughter as a Single Parent. My hope is that after seeing this movie that more single parents would join together and help each other out, this way they can be parents, be friends, and have fun. 

Be Blessed 

Where works of the flesh exists, there is NO joy
