Christmas Past

I was sitting here thinking about my mother. God, she loved Christmas. Tears started to fill my eyes. I was about to get sad, then I remembered something that made me laugh so hard.

I remembered the day my mother bought this artificial tree. I was about 10. She was complaining about the price. She said, "Damn this tree is high [expensive]... this gone last." I heard her but I was so excited about the tree that I didn't pay her any attention. I just kept on decorating the tree. Putting lights and ornaments on it. Then, she said, "And these damn lights and ornaments were high too." I just kept on smiling.

So after Christmas had passed, I saw her put the entire artificial tree back in the box that it came in, with the lights and decorations and all still attached to the tree. She just threw it in the box and the next year, you guessed it, she just pulled it out and plugged it in and said, "Don't it still look good?" I didn't have the heart to tell her that the Christmas tree looked like a Christmas shrub. LOL. Most of the lights had burned out, but she didn't care. All she remembered was the $17.95 that she paid for it. I was so glad when I made some money to buy her another tree... You think Charlie Brown had a horrible looking tree? I wish I had a picture of that branch she called a tree.

Merry Christmas y'all. If your mother is alive, savor every precious moment.

    HA HA HA HA that was too funny, And Charlie Brown's Christmas is my all time favorite movie for Christmas!!!!! I know that's pitiful! $17.95 was alot of money at that time! I'm glad you did not say anything about her tree ha ha ha. And when you say if your mother is still alive savor the moment, Tyler I wish I knew how? My mother left when I was 5 and my dad raised me, my brother and my sister by himself, and when he passed in 2009 at 68 I said my best friend is gone, but my mother is still alive, but I'm not close to her and I have went years without even talking to her. It's not the fact she left because everyone is not called to be a mother, I don't know what it is? I wish I could do things with her and for her, but I truly don't know where to start????? Thanks, Norieka

    My phone brought the name up! And when it did, I really couldn't give her & mom my attention. That's what I'm saying! I said, Pep, let me call back in 1 minute. Then & after then, we were able to finish our phone call. So, what are you doing today? Are you at home? Are you feeling alright? What are we going to do next year this time? Oh, & the other message should read "...got it bad!" LOL! Not gotta bad! How are ppl to contact you all that's interested in acting with TPS? The page is beautiful! I was so glad to see it on last night. What exactly are your plans for it? I'm sure you have something in mind. Hmmmm... I'll share it every day. Hopefully, whoever is interested will take you all up on it. I, myself, I'm gonna act as your wife in WDIGM3!!!!! 3!!!! Divine. LoL!!! Thing is, its gonna be for real! Or when u(s) we make our entrance on "For Better or Worse!" :-) Write it Tyler! I would love to see what u come up with. You know, I pay you attention, right?! I, personally, don't like to give my attention to everybody! That's a bit too much for me. Later on, after we done both enjoyed each others attention & time. Then & maybe then, I'll be ready to do that. As of right now, I'm not! What do u expect your woman to give to you? Be to you & for you? I wanna know! I need to know! I gotta know! Tell me. That's how u cut down on confusion & misunderstandings. Get an understanding! This is a great moment for me T! Today's a Special Day, too! :-) At least, it is for me. I wish that I could have this moment for life, together though. That's the moment I'm talking about. Ok... Send me another kite. So, I can know what u are doing T! ...LoL... :-) Does the number 8 stands for new beginnings? Oh, & by the way,preserved is not my middle name. It's a statement. :-) ok, send me another kite. And you knew just where to send it, too! Man, I tell u, you are WONDERFUL, OUTSTANDING, ONE OF A KIND, SPECIAL, UNIQUE & Loved by me. I wanna be loved by you Tyler Perry. That sums up my Dream. Sheneith is loved by Tyler! ...LoL... :o !!!

    Yes, Pep did it! And momma went to the church where Pep attends & heard her. Mom said, Pep did well & it didn't look as if she was nervous at all. But Pep said, she was so nervous that she didn't even look at any of her notes. She was just flowing. Too nervous to turn her page on her notes. The subject was: Raised with Christ! From the book of Colossians 2:6-15. I was like ok, then. She hasn't been going to her church very long, to my understanding. And its a small church. However, its where she gets feed. And she likes it. So, that's all that matters. Momma said in the background, instead of her giving a Sunday School lesson. It was like she was preaching. She didn't nobody the chance to ask any questions or raise they hands. Pep was just laughing on that phone. :-) Now they're about to go out to eat. This is funny, when I 1st got on the phone with Pep. I was sitting there & this person's name came up right! LoL! I thought for a second. Then I said, LET ME HANG UP & CALL U RIGHT BACK! I just couldn't focus on what she was saying after that. So, I checked & then, I called her right back. And it was all good from there. I still needed him to know I got it. So, you know what! :P LoL.... Gotta bad! Do u hear me! And no, I wasn't having those kinda conversations with her & momma. Not at all! I know better. Thru experiences. :-)

We're practicing! ...LoL... :-) Now u see why I kept asking u do u, want something/someone for yourself? Cause its all or nothing. What two people do? What they suppose to do? Ok, then. I want all that there! :-) Yes! I sure do! Who got a problem with it? I'm not speaking of temporary. I'm talking about for a lifetime, eternity. Spend my life with you!!!! Yes! :-) We can work on improving everything, everyday if u so choose, too! Just get it thru your head Sir, I want to hold u & I need for you to hold on to me, too! :-) Til the end of time. Do u hear me? Forget all that other stuff. What ppl get together for? What? Tell me that! Well, who cares why other ppl get together. All I'm concerned about is you & I. Anything else, don't have nothing to do with me/us/we. :o !!!!! OMG!!! OK, let me see what Pansy (Pep, my sister) want. She done clicked in twice. She had to give the Sunday School lesson at her church for the first time today. I'm sure she wanna tell me how it went after all. Being she was pretty nervous, being it was her 1st. I started to go down to Shreveport this weekend but as you know I had plans with Tai for the car auction that was held on yesterday. So, we didn't make it there. They were trying to talk me into coming yesterday evening. Well at least Al & Paulette was. And I wanted to too. They're missing me. :-) I'm missing them, too! Not as hard as I'm missing you. Thing is, I DONOT WANT TO MISS YOU! Period. Now, you know! ...LoL... :-) I don't want to have to miss you. No, Sir! OMG! This is called, loving out loud. Just like yall be acting before our very eyes. I'm just speaking to u how I see it as being in time. Thanks Tyler! I love you. You're the best. :P Faith is what u hope for... That's what I hope for. Now we on the same page. And its all good. As long as, you don't put your hands on me in the wrong way! We gonna be okay, better than ok. All good! Ok, I gotta call Pansy! I'll be back. Send me a kite. Let me know what u're think. ;-) :-)

    :-) You know I had to read this again, right!? Especially on today! LoL! I don't which part is the funniest. :-) Smh! I went on your fb looking for this. This right here! I know it says, Christmas Past! Well, its in memory of your mamma's birthday. And I hope it makes you laugh really really really hard on today: 02/10/13! Yes, I been sending music & not talking too much. Because I'm not sure what you're in the mood for. And how are you going thru today. So, please don't think, why I'm not talking or if I'm here or not! I'm always here. Even if I'm away, I'm still always thinking about u, got u on my mind. :-) You & I, are actually kissing & hugging, holding each other very tight (very Perry!) LoL! As we speak. Yes! It's not a game. It's real! Song: :-) "Can You Feel It!?" :P ...LoL... :-) Tyler, do u have a someone other than me? If u ever want to hurt me, have another woman! I'm not speaking on any past experiences I'm speaking about you & I. And how I feel about u. And how over all these past years I done already felt the pain of that & not knowing. That's crazy ain't it?! My thought of, "save the best for last" is Tyler & Sheneith being in love & happy with one another, enjoying each others presence; and really getting to enjoy each other to the fullest, til it OVERFLO... LoL... :-) However long it take! However! Yes, sometimes I wish it was right now
