I Just Had To Thank You!!!

Sitting here in my den watching the sunrise. Just finished my morning prayers and I’m about to do my workout for the day. Even though I have so much to be thankful for, this is still a very rough time of the year for me. As I’ve said before, most of you know why, but for those of you who don’t, I’ll tell you.  My mother died two years ago around this time of year and she was the closest person on this planet to me. We spoke just about every day, I mean almost EVERY day. I couldn’t go two days without hearing her voice, hearing her laugh, or hearing her stories. She was the best!  Ever since I was born we had such a bond. So needless to say, getting through these holidays that she loved so much is beyond difficult. So to get from Thanksgiving to December 8, which is the day she died in 2009, to Christmas, then to the New Years and to her Birthday, which was on February 12th, to Mother’s Day in May, can be rough. I simply try to float through this time of year the best way that I can. I think about her every day! She would have been 67 this year. ONLY 67. Life is so precious and but a moment.

I said all of that, so you know what kind of headspace I’m in.  “It’s a little grey,” but I didn’t want another day to pass without me telling you how much I appreciate all of you. My God in heaven, my shows on TBS moved to a new night. It was Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and an advertising campaign that was nowhere near as aggressive as the launch of House of Payne and still 3.4 million people watched For Better or Worse last Friday.  WHAT!!! That’s INCREDIBLE!!!  Thank you so much.  The show is only on every Friday until the end of December. So if you haven’t seen it, please check it out this Friday. If you have seen it, keep watching.  In the next few weeks this show is going to take you on a rollercoaster ride that you won’t believe. Now that all the characters have been established, we can get into a story that is going to challenge trust in every sense of the word, you’ll see. And it’s not what you think:-)

I also want to thank you for sending A Madea Christmas to the top of the DVD sales charts this past week. What a blessing that is!  It is miraculous that I have been allowed to live my dream and even more of a blessing that you all stand with me constantly.

You have no idea what your support has meant to me, my family and the hundreds of employees that work at Tyler Perry Studios.  My prayer is that for everything that you have done for me and mine, that it comes back to you.

God bless, thank you - I’ll talk to you soon,

    Good afternoon Mr.Perry coming from Michigan hope all continues to be well with you and yours.I thank you for the email you posted and i just want to say that everything is going to be all right. I know what it's like to loose a parent (even though it aint nobody like mom) I still know how it feels to loose a parent. I miss my dad so much it made three years that my dad passed. I saw my dad everyday even though he was no longer with my mom but he was always around. What makes me feel better even though they are not with us down here is that they are up in Heaven and that makes my soul be at peace.You will get through this Mr. Perry and as you know God never puts no more on us than we can bear.Continue to let God use you because with what God and your dear mother has installed in you will never fail.God is well pleased with you Mr.Perry never forget that . It is a Great Day coming and we will see our parents again and they will greet us with the biggest smiles and longest hugs. This earth here is just a passing through Heaven is our home so I can not stress to you enough that you will see mom. Until then I pray that God comforts you and keeps you in perfect peace. May He continue to bless and keep you and yours.Happy Holidays

    Tyler, I pray God's peace and comfort all about you in Jesus Name. I pray that daddy will bring you sweet joy in this season. For the joy of the Lord is your strength. I am aware of what it is like to lose someone close to you as I have lost a few in a years time but I know that God is a keeper. Be encouraged and know that Momma Maxine is looking down on you, with a great big smile. I pray that now, through Dec. 8 and from this day forward that God will began to fill every empty place, in Jesus Name. I bind every weapon that has been formed against you in this season as well; for no weapon that is formed shall prosper. In Jesus Name, Amen

    Tyler, my heart and prayer go out to you. I may not know what you are feeling, I pray God will make away for your heart to feel his joy and love again. I know that no one can ever take the place of you Mom. God will and has away to feel the love of your Mom again in your heart. Oneday it won't be sadness when you think about her it will be something silly you did to make her laugh, so with this in mind know people care. He is a way maker. You have a very blessed day.
