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!!!

    How u want it? That's the question that needs to an answer. Because my aim is to please you, Baby! Only you, at that! If it makes u happy then it also makes me happy. You're in charge. You specialize in that. Me being in charge, is something I just forced into being. But I been determined to not lose my woman's touch when the time comes. It just gave me an edge, my edge. :-) LOL!!!

    Tyler, there's so many things I enjoy about you. :-) For one, your creativity is out of this world. I wouldn't want to change any of it. Do I right off understand it all? My answer is No! So which means, I give to give you plenty attention. Which I really enjoy doing! :-) You really & truly amaze me. :-) :o!!!! LoL... :P I have the HOTS for you! Why would someone have need to come in & do what u already do so well? However, there is a need for you to be loved the way you deserve to be loved & cared for. Now, that's where I come in at! :-) !!!! Yes!!! And I'm SUPER EXCITED about the idea too! And if words aren't always enough! LET'S SHOW EACH OTHER! :-) Better yet, let's CONTINUE to show each other & take it to another level all at the same time. I don't have no problem with that. I'm willing! LoL... And I been ready! :-) Just as I am! Just as you are. Who worried? Is it you or is it me? Then, who worried? I can never take your place. I need for you to have your place always & forever. You are the best T! Nice T! <--- that sounds like Nasty! LoL... LoL.... :-) Happy Saturday Love of my life. You were missed but I'm happy, glad & thrilled at your presence NOW!!!!!! :o !!!! ...LoL... Kiss & Hugging. I love you, Baby! :-) P.S. and if/when words ain't enough, then I need you to do something about it, act upon it! :-)

    :-) Did I tell you, I like the way you lead? You're a great head! I know I be jumping all up in the middle saying what I wanna say, doing what I wanna do :-) ...LoL... :-) Cause to be loved by you is the best gift from Father, that any female could ask for. At least in my honest opinion. That's how I feel about it & that's how I see it to be. :-) You turn me On! In all actuality, you like to try me to the core. Thing is I trust you TP! It's not to say I don't get mad, hurt, upset, afraid, emotional, sensitive, weak, loud or silent! I trust you're be the one to handle it all with love. Being that u like to give flowers & roses. It's it good to see a flower/rose blossom into being? The after effects are so beautiful & smells so well. That its breath taking! Like WOW! What is it that u like so much about flowers/roses TP? Even roses have thorns, as beautiful as they are. You still must be very careful while handling them. Now even they're neatly placed in a vase & on display, of course they look breath taking. Someone had to do the hard work to get them to that point of being. So others could admire the Masterpiece. :-) It takes work, determination, faith, outlook, belief, understanding, longsuffering, patience, etc... coupled with failure. Lessons learned. The will to still know what you want: The Prize! Thru it all, I've learn to trust in Jesus! :-) And for God to see fit to bless me with your presence TP, that along is more than enough. That's why I be saying, I'm just gonna cry on your shirt. Which are tears of JOY! I know ppl are waiting for me to tell so many horrible stories & or experiences! And there's not to say I haven't had them. They just don't have me, nor my mind, nor my thoughts, nor my life, nor my presence, nor my future, nor my destiny, nor my purpose. Those type of conversations/experiences etc are for you & for you to choose what u would like to do with them & when. If, when! Take me for instance Tyler, I don't sit around focusing on your bad! I focus my attention, time & energy on loving, liking, listening to & paying you attention!!!! That along, is a helpful tips. If by ANY CHANCE, somebody wanna know about me. That's what they can learn from me (little ole me)! :-) I love you T, TP, Tyler, Tyler Perry, Mr Perry, Baby, King, Daddy, My Lover, My Friend, My Heart: u! Thank you! :-)

    TP, are you waiting on me? :-) I had to jump in the shower & get freshen up. How u doing Baby? You know when you had your back turned to me while filming on the set? I was kissing you all over. Did u feel the effect? Did it feel good to you? It felt wonderful to me! Yes! So much so, that it made you turn around & see! Then I'm kissing all over your face & you're caressing me all over. Running your anointed hands thru my hair & stroking my neck, as only you can. :-) Its all good T! I like your touch. SATISFACTORY! IMPRESSIVE! ATTRACTIVE! HIGHER LEVEL, TOO! Do u think it good to have us a P*** installed? I think it'll be a wonderful idea. Will u handle that for me please? Thank you! Because I know u will! Only this is, when you do, do, you go way out there. That I'm always impressed by you. :-) You make me & my heart smile so much more than any bad day! I smile just at the thought of you. You & I are holding conversations with each other, even when we're not in the same room, city, or state, Country for that matter! Your love break through walls, & it shines so brightly that even the blind sees. :-) I'm kissing your eyes & YOU KNOW, I'm kissing my cheeks. When you smile TP, I smile & laugh. You still have such a beautiful smile. I love when u smile. It makes me feel like you're happy, fulfilled, complete, whole. Because you are! We both are! :-)

Crystal told me I need to take her photo off my profile pic, before u or others think its her! LoL.... She ain't got a clue! However, today I will. LoL.. You know Tyler, I put it there cause I was pretty emotional on that New Years Day after the night before. And you know why, too! Now, as for today, I'm like okay. If I say one more thing to you & you act as if you don't hear me. You & I, we gonna have a problem!!! A serious problem, at that! :o !!! Now all games to the side & not playing with me & stop giving me all these test. I should've told u this Wednesday night when it came to mind. Well, I'm telling you now. Now u know. Do u know how the other week u wasn't feeling good or should I say, you were feeling bad? Imagine just how I'm feeling right now?! Do you know or do you even care? I expect you to understand & right now I'm feeling so let down by you. FYI: just so you know. And if words are sometimes not enough! What actions are you willing to take? This is what I wanna know; gotta know. What actions are you willing to take Tyler Perry? (I'm calling your whole name, which is a sign to you that u are in some trouble with me!!!) Another FYI! I must inform u, u can't go without saying something! Better yet, talking to/with me. Do u want me to leave you alone? Yes or No!

    Tyler, I'm thinking a visit would be excellent. And or a phone call at the least. Hmmm.... I guess! I don't know what else to say. I done told u. Now u know. Maybe, you'll act up on it. Please know, I'm not discouraged due to this one day. Cause I would love to have Lover's Day each & every day. Why not!? :-) I have gotten the greatest thrill by chasing/following all up behind u. So, maybe & just maybe, you'll take over from here. If u so choose too! Like Mr & Mrs Pac-Man, Tyler! LoL!!! It's your time. Let me see what you're working with! :-) I'll be waiting! :P ...LoL... :-)

    I have no idea why today of all days I chose to come to this website or even read about you wanting wells put into your yard. But God knew. I have been depressed because I hate Florida. Want to move to Atlanta to persue my music career. Told I'm too old because I am 40. No money to move....but I have a date, a promise, and faith. I am sick because I cannot do what I want to do which is sing because the opportunity here is not open. I visited Atl and fell in love. I do not know how this is going to happen.....I was telling myself this morning just to give up.....but this story of going deeper, keep digging no matter the cost hit me in my heart. I cry as I type and I promise to keep going. For myself, my child, my grand baby.....and my brother I promised before he passed. Hurts like h*** right now because I wanna give up. But I will keep fighting. Thank you for this post. I'm going to get there obecausne way or the other becaus my destiny has to be fulfillef
