I wrote from my phone so some of my nceptrds are misspelled, but I think you get the concept.
I feel as you do Mr. Perry, my story is a tab bit different, but the exact same concept is there. At the age of three weeks old my mother was gun down, my father immediately after my mother my passed, my father took me to his mother asking if she would help him to raise me, she agreed, sad to say T years later we buried my father, he too was gun down. My mama/grandmother was 54 years my senior and taught me everything up too and icluding what side of the sidewalk to walk on when passing people, I get and understand how it feels to good from talking and learning from someone EVERYDAY, to not hearing that love flow through the phone into your spirit anymore, but you are right a smart person will take that with them for the rest of their lives. You ask what do I give my children, everyday my children after prayer speak a qoute that I specially wrote for them, with it beginning with "I Am A Born Leader," and it ending, "I Am Somebody,"! My daughters and I are going through it right now due to me not pursuing my education, but me late blooming in my educational career is actually a blessing, now don't get wrong I am a true believer in getting educated, however I am an example of what not too do when it comes to handling business in school, when my daughters want something and I tell them with a broken heart, we don't have it, I also remind them that this is the ouycome of not doing what is needed in school in order to get the things that are needed and some of the things you want. My daughters are 13, and one of the things that I tell them is that they have a god giving right too hold everyone including their parents in high expectations, and nothing else is acceptable! Another parenting skill that is above ALL is LOVE, love is the foundation first food, the first water, the first sleep, the first bathe,and the first rearing. Thanks for allowing my to share my story. Yours Truly Syreeta Jones
Mr Perry, Reading your inspirationals have really blessed me. i love and enjoy watching anything Tyler Perry but until i went through your post about what we can give our children, i understand why am hooked.. you see, for some i felt i have failed my kids because i could not provide the right education for them, i now realize that part of the legacy i can give them and most valuable is the knowledge of Jesus and accepting him in their lives, which am glad they have done.I really understand that i have been measuring my success with my children by the world standard, comparing their levels with whatever others especially extended family members and friends are achieving with their kids now.. I refuse to see what the Lord has been doing in the lives of my three boys.. They have dreams but i have my own different dreams for them and have been so unhappy because they are not achievable now.. I want to thank you immensely for helping me to understand the important things and change the way i think... Thank you

Mr. Tyler Perry, Your mom sounds just like my mom. Caring,loving, understanding, patience, most of all a God fearing mother. God call your mother home 2 years ago because He know she had already prepared you for manhood. The qualities she instilled in you are breath taking. You are a God fearing, motivator, spiritual adviser, wise, intelligent, humble, caring, funny, and most of all a child of the King on high. So always look up and see your mother smiling down on you saying how proud she is of her baby. God Bless.
Hello Tyler: Just a quick note to say I love You and Happy Fathers Day. I need you.
This week in my internship I had kids who had been molested and abused. I know you help children and you pray for them. Thank you. God bless you.
I am so inspired and encouraged by the relationship you had with your mother. I desire so much to have that but know it will never be. So I rejoice that you got to experience a mother's love and pray that you will continue to glean from this experience.
You are such a Blessed man of God and I love you very much. May Gods Grace , Mercy and abundant Favor always be upon you.
Thank you so much for your Inspirational messages. This one has touched me because following the breakdown of my 23 year marriage I have returned to my mother's home.....a safe haven. It is where I can also entertain my children and continue to instil in them those loving Christian qualities that I learned from my mum. I am a man of faith but the breakdown has tested me greatly and in all honesty if it wasn't for the loving arms and wisdom of my mother I don't know where I would be. Maybe my being there at 52 years old was part of God's bigger plan because when she got sick recently and had to be hospitalised, God saw it fit to place me there with her at that very time!!! I could have been many miles away! My mother is very special and I love her very much. I am truly sorry that you have lost your mother and i know I wont have mine for too long, but God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts! Its taking a long time for my heart to mend and to be more positive in life, but its nice to come home to my mum. God continue to Bless all of your endeavours. Antonio
Oh my goodness!! You are not only describing your mom, you are speaking of my mom, Nina Wallace. She passed away July 24, 2011. I miss her dearly every day. Not only did she instill faith and a spiritual way of life in her 7 children, she passed this on to countless foster children, friends children, church family. We use to have bible studies in our home. My mom is (was) and awesome cook, she use to cook for dozens of people and some how it always was just like the 2 fish and 5 loaves of broad. She was truly a miracle. I wish I had the time to introduce you to my family, the legacy she left, she left a teacher, an EMT worker, a nurse (my sister that was murdered in 2008), a writer (local author Gloria Taylor-Edwards) I could go on and on how her faith kept us. Thank you Tyler, thank you. I passed your message on to as many people as I could, especially young mothers.
Thank you for allowing God to use you!! I'm a single mom of three and I know God is the only one who is keeping us. It feels good to hear you say what your mom instilled in you and how she prepared you for life. This gives me the courage to continue to teach my children about God because he has the last say in our lives. I also know that God trusted me with my children to raise them for his purpose. That's what parenting is all about....preparing children to survive once you're gone, to become responsible, hardworking adults, and to be the leaders of tomorrow!! My heart goes out to the youth that are parentless; I wish I had a way to parent all of them. I pray God continue to strengthen you to do his will!! Much love for and continued success!!
