For Colored Girls

First off, I want to say thanks to all of you who sent me thousands of encouraging emails and notes after THE OPRAH SHOW aired a few weeks ago. You will never know how much it meant to me to have that kind of support from all of you. Just know, I thank you and appreciate you so much.

Starting today, I'm going away for a while for some long needed and overdue rest. I have realized in these 41 years that if I don't stop and take care of myself no one else will, so I'm doing just that. Thinking of myself first has never come easy, but it's about time that I do for a while. Just know that I'm fine. I just need some revival time.

Before I go, I just wanted to send this email reminding you that FOR COLORED GIRLS opens tomorrow, Friday, November 5th. I sure hope you intend to get out and see it this weekend. It is a fascinating film that I know you're going to love. I think I'm going to try and sneak in a few theaters to hear some live reactions. And know for sure that I'll be near my message board and Facebook page to see what you thought.

Also, Essence did a two-cover collector's item for their December issue. Never before have this many women of color been in a film, and that alone is worth celebrating. I'm so proud of them! Wait until you see the work they put down...WOW! Thanks Essence. It's so great when we celebrate our own. Also, the soundtrack is out and I must say I love it. I love good music.

And by the way, you don't have to be a colored girl to enjoy this film. It is for everyone.

Talk soon.

Be blessed,

Tyler Perry

Then she went recalling me into my memories. And herr god ma said " Tell her I still remember that ride." Perry, I'm so happy! Wonderful memories drives me into your arms. Good day

    Years ago I wanted ro go into business with my best friend,cause I wanted my own laundry mat . I didn't know back then washing machines had hot water. We had no dryer. Nothing but clothes lines. The clothes didn't smell fresh, perry! Years later, I finally owned my own washing machine and dryer. Perry, My hands started hurting after I been scrubbing clothes with my poor hands but I was happy. I scrubbed them in hot water. I washed my little brother work shirt with my hands one night and my hands ached but it sure felt good when my lil bro said" thanks sis". I hung his shirt up in front of the central air. Central air! My first time feeling central air , it was the most amazing creation I known made by man. Ha! :-) Aww, Let me go before I talk your ears off.lol. good night

    My son at school last year was painting a picture of himself but he never finished. I think that God silently gave him a picture of you being his father. Hey, I don't know! :-) I showed it to other people and I ask them " Who does this look like?" . They all rely "Is it Tyler Perry?"

    I'm smiling a little bit,just a little okay. No I'm laughing. Jehovah is so good in Jesus name and the Holy Spirit. So, what's cooking? I'm cooking smoke neckbones and college greens ( in my Madea voice) ,frying some chicken wings, then mashed potatoes for the other side. To drink is cool aid. The real cool aid. You know, my grandma you to buy that cheap cool aid but I always wanted the man with the big smile. Now I have him. He's all I drink. My favorite cool aid is cherry flavor. I buy 20 pounds of sugar and rice. I love you Baby. Have a great day and Smile

    I get happy then sad . What else do I need to know . I ask for stuff like this when I was younger ,more patient,more powerful. It was a great time to date a man far away. My voice was heavy and fresh. Who needs my help? I would ask. God had me freeing other people. I was modeling,dancing,and fighting for human rights. If this a joke+??? I want God to make laugh so hard right now and telll me Good Job. I'm ready to open my apple and take the seed out so I can plant it.
