Sister - for you

So I've been in a funk. I've been struggling.

This we know.

Well, I saw the shrink recently. Gave me some news that - well, I'm not ready to share yet. If you want to know, you're gonna hafta wait for my book to come out or I am ready to divulge here.
Whichever comes first. Ha. You like that? I am already shamelessly plugging a book thats not even close, wait. It is close to being published.

Just gotta find a publisher.

Gotta find an agent.

Gotta stay on track. Sorry.

Anyhow, this news has rocked me at my core. I just...don't even know what to say. I don't. Which, as you should know (if you are a regular reader), is a weird thing for me. I always got to say something about anything.

But as I am struggling, I want you to know. I am still fighting the fight. I ain't gonna give up. I will not be a statistic. Why? Cause I am a ninja.

True story.

I'm holding on to Jesus. Holding on to my kids. Holding on to my husband. All the while? I am kicking butt.

Recently, I saw The Color Purple again. Awesome, awesome, awesome movie. Each time I see it, something hits me differently. Good movies do that ya know.

And what does that hafta do with For you Friday? Well, I just want you to remember this:

I wanted to sing this to y'all (cause I can sing...wait. No, I can...SANG); but my kids destroyed my t-shirt and I changed into my nightie. I am too lazy to change into another so there goes the wonder of youtube.

Shame I know. Y'all miss out on my awesome croaking singing. But there will be a next time, right?

Oh, wait. Just in case you had trouble understanding her; here are the words:

Woh woh ..........
Uhm uhm ..........
Uhm uhm ..........

you've been on my mind
oh, Sister, we're two of a kind
So sister,
I'm keepin' my eyes on you

I betcha think
I don't know nothin'
But singin' the blues
Oh sister, have I got news for you
I'm somethin'
I hope you think
that you're somethin' too

Oh, Scufflin',
I been up that lonesome road
And I seen a lot of suns goin' down
Oh, but trust me
No low life's gonna run me around

So let me tell you somethin' sister
Remember your name
No twister,
gonna steal your stuff away
My sister
We sho' ain't got a whole lot of time

So shake your shimmy,
'Cause honey the 'shug
is feelin' fine

And just in case you don't know - 'shug is the name of the character singing. And lastly, it would not be an imperfectmomma post if it didn't bring at least a little bit of the funny.

Yeah.....I put hashtags on facebook all the stinkin time. Don't act like you don't


  1. No matter what your battle I have no doubt you can beat it. You are an inspiration and I adore you

  2. Oh sweetie, I am sending you love & hugs. You can fight this new zombie because you are a ninja. You inspire me daily. Your song choice is perfect for this post.

  3. I love your resolve. Keep kicking ass.

    Also, I never use hashtags on FB, I rarely use them on twitter.


people who think I'm awesome say...
