True Story!

A few years ago I was getting these really insane water bills. I mean HIGH! So I decided to dig some wells in my yard to have water for my landscape. I live alone, so I know it had to be from watering the grass. So I hired a company to come out and dig these wells. The foreman and I walked all around my yard and as we were walking he was putting down flags. I asked what the flags were for. He said, "The flags represent good places to dig for water." I asked, "Why do you have so many flags?" He said, "I'm not sure if any of these places will produce water." I said, "Hold up, you mean if you dig all these spots and don't hit water I still have to pay you?" He said, "Yes, that's how it goes." I said, "Ok, fine." Needless to say, he dug three wells and never hit water. I said, "Just stop."

I got a few more extreme water bills and called him back. He said, "Are you sure?" I said, "Yes, keep drilling until you hit water." The next well he dug he was down 500 feet and still didn't hit any water. He asked if I wanted him to stop. I said, "Go deeper." He dug down another 200 feet and still nothing. I said, "Go deeper." He drilled another 200 feet and he hit rock. I said, "Blast it, cut it, do whatever you have to do but keep digging." After fighting the rock and breaking his drill and getting a new one we got a little deeper. He said, "We are at 1,200 feet, why do you want me to keep going?" I said, "Cause I'm tired of these water bills and I'm going to do something about it." He said, "But this is really deep." I asked him if he had hit water yet. He said "no," so I told him to go deeper. "But you don't understand," he said. "We don't usually drill this deep, this is going to be expensive." I told him that, "Sometimes you have to go deeper to get what you are after, no matter what the cost." He started the machine and went down another four inches and hit a river of water. Just a few inches separated me from getting my breakthrough. That was five years ago and that well has never run dry.

In 2013 I want you to apply that to your life in all ways. Sometimes you will spend time on a thing and it will produce no water. Don't be afraid to move on to another spot. YOU CAN'T HAVE FEAR. I don't care how much time you put into it. If the well is dry MOVE ON! Nothing lives where there is no living water. Be it a relationship, a job, a business, don't be afraid to move to another spot.

Now, on the other hand, if you are digging your well and you are sure that it is not only where you want to be but where God wants you to be, then keep digging in that same spot. Don't stop digging until you hit a river of blessings. Don't stop praying until you live in the change you've been waiting for. Don't stop pushing until you deliver your breakthrough. Yes, it will get difficult. Yes, you may hit rock. Yes, there will be a cost. But when you get to what God is trying to get you to, YOU WILL RECOVER IT ALL!  One of my favorite scriptures says that. "PURSUE AND YOU SHALL RECOVER IT ALL!"

Some people give up when they are only inches away!!

Happy New Year.

DDDDIIGGGGGG! People DIG!!!

    And of course, over these years, I done watched u, heard u, agree & disagree with you. All that! But one things been for certain. I have never wanted anyone to have you. As if u was suppose to knock on my door & just know who I was or something. :-) LoL... LoL... I can't explain it. What I can say is, I been liking u Dude. I just considered myself perfect for you! And yet in still, I had been afraid to dare approach u. All this time, when I would say, "Save the best for last!" That was referring to you & I! So, when I heard u where there on NYEve, I could not allow another moment/opportunity to pass. While T sitting there looking all serious & stuff. LoL... Could u have even imagine that someone, meaning myself was crazy about you? That's all you need to know. LoL... :-) And that's why I be saying, "Don't come to me like that." But I can say, I still have enjoyed every minute. Just being able to finally chat & communion with you have been so great & wonderful. You're such an outstanding person. And I just love u. And if it means I've made a fool of myself. I'll say, its been worth it all. Because I see you as worthy. :-) Have a good night T! And thank you so so so much. I love you! :-)

    What's on your mind tonight? I'm feeling pretty free, right about now. Let me share this with you. When I think of you & TPS, I think of TPS as your baby/children/kids. Not the people! What I mean by that is, me, being a mother. Which means I have two sons. If something comes up, guess who they call? Me! And I do what I do. Same for you, just on a different level. Sometimes when it was hard on me. I would think about you! Having to be responsible for multiple people & multiple families. And I don't see that as small. Not at all! Actually its perhaps, a huge responsibility. Like mother hasn't always been as easy as it is now. I've cried a many of years. Days wouldn't have been enough. So, that's why I chose to use years instead. I would look at u & see my sons. And what they could become in their future. Through it all. I really don't like the things that u have had to encounter & endure. But I'm so glad u survived & that you are alive & well. Wise, too! Open! Loving & Caring! And such a great listener. And you are fun. That's really amazing, too, T! Please believe, I be having some smart stuff to say. But the truth of the matter is, if any would have scooped you up. I really would be hurt. Like u can't even imagine. There ain't need for me to lie about it. I used to be sitting back acting as if God was just gonna bring u directly to me. Each time I saw u with somebody my heart was like OH!!!! :-) LoL... Over these past 3-4yrs, when getting your emails, I would be acting like it was a check or something. Just wanting to hear what u had to say. I been sweet on you T, for 8yrs. Thinking you are the bomb. :-) ...LoL... :-) That's funny isn't it?! :o !!!!

    FYI, too! And when Jesus was tempted, he was only being tempted by what was ALREADY His in the first place. I'll leave u with that. :-) I love you, T!

    Good Morning T! :-) I'm here, And I tryin' to see where I wanna start. First of all, I'm so so so happy to have Tyler Perry's Madea Gets A Job :-) !!!!!! I remember you tell us about it 2mos in advance. And I wanted to there every 4 nights. I end up going to the 1st 2 nights. By time the concert had come I had moved down closer & was dancing with u all like...lol! The next night, I said, "forget that! I'm wearing jeans!" Well of course, you know Friday it was like a club in there packed, packed, packed! I still enjoyed myself. Both night I had to drive back to Dallas with a longing that hasn't stopped! Like Oh My God is it real! Oh My God is it real! LoL :-) LoL... :-) And let's not even mention June. Which each time I'm overjoyed just to see you & your presence being in the place. Yet, it only caused all my emotions to go wild, meaning every which way. In June, I was like, ok, he's busy & can't be here. But deep down inside I was looking for you. Didn't see u outside, nowhere. (Not even knowing what I would say if I did! LoL... :-) ...LoL) So, I finally get to my seat, & when u came out! Yes, I was happy & upset, like what am I going to do!!!!! So, by New Year's Eve! I couldn't take that no more! I have got to do something!!! :-) LoL... Well, we all know how that night went. Well, I'm the one who had to experience how it went, myself!!! I'm like OMG, for real for real for real for real! Ok, so where do we go from here, Tyler? And where are we headed? There is still one thing required of you, too! That has not changed! It's key Tyler! Just know, in the meantime & meanwhile, I'm just enjoying myself, oh & you, too! ...LoL... :-) It's one of them: we did it for love things! Ok, enjoy your day. What 'we' gonna do? And FYI: If it was left up to ME! You woulda already had me untied. Yes, I said, "you!" Cause that the standard/goal I set for myself. I just didn't know, at the time, it would be you. And if u don't do the key then.... I don't know what to tell you, Tyler! While u sitting round here playing locate your love & stuff. Like a sista ain't looking u dead in your face. I'll say it again, I'm enjoying every minute of it. :-) Due Time! :-)

    ...I don't do celebrity crushes. That's what I meant when I was said, Tyler people don't impress me like that. Now, you on the other hand have gained my attention in a way that even I'm impressed & I be feeling CRAZY! Whether u know it or not!!! :-) I just like you! :-) For some reason. I could also tell you about yourself. You of all people know that I'm not all nice. I really am nice but that's not for just any ole somebody to see. I also get mad, I also go off. It's something about you that tells me I can keep it real with you & like & love you at the same time. I can't explain it. I just feel that way about you. I do not feel that way about anyone else. Yet in still, you got a smart a$$ mouth. And you talk cash s**** I have never been afraid of Madea, as I told u before. It's been the person behind Madea that just does something to me. Then you have such a gentleman, caring, loving, thoughtful, kind, patience part/side of you. Also, you're so real. Then so pulled back. We have more in common than I think you or I know and or understand, at this time. And still w/ all that being said. I'm attracted to you! It's deep. Yet and still I tremble at the very thought of your presence/being. To me, you are this great person that's so dear to me. I don't know any of words to say to you other than I love you! When I know its not my place as the woman to love. It's the man's place to love the woman. This is what u must understand; I'm not throwing myself on you. I am making my self seen. In closing, let me tell you, your inner self is so amazing. To me, you're so strong, brave,courageous, tough, you Tyler are 1 amazing guy. And if you must set a standard for me make sure its, the standard of Sheneith being herself. I trust after this chat that's exactly how & what you will do for me. Tyler,you had to get over your fear. And just so you know I have been working on getting over the fear of you. I really kind of look at it as much respect. Even though I can admit, I been afraid. Okay, I'll ttyl. :-) Now & Later! Have a good night. Yes, I could talk to you about faith. In doing so, how would you really know the parts of me that I need you to see? :-) Alright! Have a good night I'm ready for my Double Double. :-) LoL... :-) Ok, I love you! Alright. Talk with you later on today. Peace, love & Happiness 2013! :-)

    I'm back Tyler, :-) Now where were we? Is the concert on the DVD, Tyler? So, how are you & how are you feeling? Everything ok with you? As for me, I'm EXCITED! SO SO SO EXCITED! In the morning we get to see you in action. Doing what you do. Both you & Madea!!! That's really not fair that Joe don't have his own show & or movie. While everybody talking about Madea! Joe needs some more action. He isssssss... I can't say! We love you Tyler! I saw Oprah getting her feet done just a little while ago. You heard me say, "I'm next, right?" Yes! :-) Thank you! Tyler, what is that you, yourself would like to do? Meaning when you get that special someone with you? Do you know how to treat your woman? No, seriously! What are you like? Outside of all the job/work duties, studios, etc... What is Tyler like? The person Tyler? I personally believe you to be pretty serious. And of course you like to laugh and or make others laugh. You do that well. How do you see yourself with a woman around you everyday? You woman!? How will you treat her? Would u allow others into you all's relationship or will you keeo it off limits? These are some of the things I will like to know about you. Am I asking you too many questions? No, there is no such thing as too many questions. How have you kept all the females off you all this time, Tyler? To me, I see you as perfect. What is perfect. Not as you don't do any wrong or anything. You're just perfect in your own way. Ok, how would u like for me to treat you? What is it u want out of your woman for yourself. Just for your self!!! Do u hear the words that's coming out of my mouth? Let me re-word something I have mentioned to you before. Tyler, for some reason or another I like u, I'm attracted to you, I feel I need u, I actually want you & can't stop thinking about you. Just know I don't need u stepping to me with all those titles though. I believe moreso, because I am a mother to sons & with sons. I'm me! And that's enough. It's actually more than enough. :-) I can respect you to the upmost to be exact. However, the quickest way to pies me off is to act like I want you for something outside of yourself! I don't care how much money any person have. I care about how a man will love, care, protect, provide, guide, guard & treat me as a person.
