Diary of a Mad Black Woman

Today, December 10, 2010, My daughter had ordered two movies from Netflix - "Madea's Family Reunion" and "Diary of a Mad Black Woman."

I'm glad I watched  "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" all by myself, because when Helen's cousin entered the church, I began bawling like a big baby. I cried for the next half hour - not really watching the rest of the movie.  (Spoiler warning) - She reminded me so much of Lila - who also had a daughter and son about those ages when she died - and then to see this woman walk through those doors - grabbing hold of the Spirit with all her heart -  I had no idea I had all that grief still inside me.  How I wish that Lila had been able to do that.

OMG. My mom bought me "Madea Goes To Jail" because she said I remind her of Madea so much. And sadly, while watching that movie, I did see some of myself in her.

LOL - I'd never heard of the movies until my daughter got them a week ago. I decided I love Madea. Now I'll have to see that one, too.

There's TWO versions. A musical one, and a movie one. I enjoyed both, but the movie one is definitely more funny.

You have to watch the Dr. Phil Part. Here, I'll link you. This, unfortunately, is where my mom was all "THIS IS YOU. YOU ARE MADEA".
