Thank You!

Hey there,

I know it has been a while, sorry. From Christmas to Feb. 12th is a difficult time for me to move through, seeing as my mother loved the holidays. Also, Feb. 12th is her birthday, she would have been 66 this year. The greatest comfort I have is that there isn't one more thing that I could have given or done for her on her birthday. Even before she died, I was running out of ideas. I cannot tell you what a good feeling it is to know that I did all I could. I rest well in that.

A few things I must say to you. First off, thanks for making FOR COLORED GIRLS the number one DVD last week, almost a million sold. How great! We do so appreciate it. Also, I want to say thanks for the 19 NAACP image award nominations, these women so deserve the acknowledgment. The performances in this film cannot be beat. I have to tell you, after doing such a heavy movie I ran to Madea. I mean ran. I NEEDED a LAUGH. I hope you saw the teaser trailer by now. Madea on Maury how silly is that? LOL...thinking about it. I can't wait for you to see it. With so much going on in the world, I tell you if I didn't laugh and pray, I would want to lie down and give up. I can't wait for you to laugh with me on this one.

You may have heard about this story back in December. I didn't talk about it then, but this is what happened. I was lying in bed watching the local news here in town and I saw a story about an 88-year-old woman whose house had burned down a week before Christmas. What blew my mind about this woman is that she was not only almost 90, but she was raising seven great grandchildren. Now look here, I know some grandmothers at 40, who wouldn't raise one grandchild, let alone 7. LOL. Anyway, I was just moved by what she said on the news, she wasn't worried about anything other than being able to keep her "babies", as she called them, together. Her love for those kids was apparent. Also, what was apparent from the story is she didn't have any insurance to rebuild the house; I called the fire chief that was raising money for her, I told him that I would pay to rebuild the home for her and the kids. In the meantime, I would rent and furnish a home and pay all the utilities for her, so she could keep her family together and have a great Christmas. Well, it has been a few months, the new house is underway and the family is very happy.

I said all of that to say this to you, on behalf of her, and the hundreds of people who work for me here at the studio, on behalf of all of the people of Haiti that we have given to, on behalf of all of the wells dug in Haiti and in Africa so there could be fresh water, on behalf of the families that are fed and put through school and all of the homeless people that are being fed, thank you! Just know, when you buy a DVD of mine or go to a movie or see a play, you sow into good soil, and good people benefit.

Be Blessed,

    Hello Mr Tyler, just thinking about your CNN Interview with Piers Morgan about your Childhood & growing up with a Father who beat you up. You told Mr Piers Morgan you forgave your Father in your Twenties. But I would like to advise you as someone who looks up to you as my Hero & Inspiration to not only forgive your Father but I want you to go an Extra mile to love your Father,bond with your Dad in his old age & be his good friend. Mr Tyler I know your Late Mother would be very proud of you for loving,bond & being good Friends with your Father. By God's Grace you too will be a Father & Dad too to your unborn Children. I believe if you show your Father love & be his friend it will impact positively on you in your relationship with your Children as friends & in bonding with unborn Children in Future. We sin & hurt God so many times but God forgives us and still loves us. I see your Dad as a man who grew up without love & didnt know how to show love to you his Son. PleaseI believe you should not only forgive your Dad but also show him love,bond with your Dad & be his good Friend. Mr Tyler by God's Grace youtoo will be a Father to your own Children too. Take out time from your busy schedule to spend time with your Father on a regular Basis for Breakfast,Lunch or Dinner which ever is ok for both of you . Find out what your Dad likes to do & join him in doing it . The Bible said Honour thy Father & Mother that it maybe well with You. The Bible didn't say Honour a good Father & dishonour a Bad Father. So Mr Tyler give your Dad the Honour of attending your Movie Premiers & screenings & walking the Red Carpet with you and be proud having y you. He is your Father,you only have 1 Father. Honour your Father by going on a Vacation with him,because in future u too will have take your Children on Family Vacations,which will help you to bond & have a healthy Friendship & relationship with your kids. I believe if you show your Father love & be his friend it will impact positively on you in your relationship with your Children as friends & in bonding with unborn Children in Future. Please Mr Tyler I know your Late Mother would be very proud of you for loving,bond & being good Friends with your Father.

    I was happy to read the story about you providing a home for the woman and her great grandchildren, I read the story in the paper and thought it was very sad. Now I feel relieved after reading that you helped them .
