A night for,sharing
(Blogging from iPad bare with me)
Last night it was my turn to stay with Mommy as well as I
Was doing a presentation to the confirmation class
Of st. Joseph ,
It was one of the most inspirational talks I have given
Thanks to the Big Man.
It is the first time I add that my daughter is gay.
I explain that my only job in this world is to love my gypsy baby
With acceptance and love. She is Gods child and was given to
Me to raise her, be her mom and I will continue to do that ,
Continue to fight for her rights and equalism.
I know I impacted this group as God filled me with thoughts and ideas
That flooded out of me.
Even though I made a pact with God that each time asked,
I would say yes to speaking, it still makes me a little nervous.
Yet, just like most of us when the time comes you try and find
A way out of it but once you do it you are so happy you did..
For instance, on my drive up here, I am listening
To my favorite Oprah on OWN
She is speak ring to dr. Elizabeth someone or other.
She begins speaking of what heaven may be like.
She imagines it as that trip you have booked, you don't really
Feel like going but it's booked and you gotta do it.
Yet once you get there you are filled with happiness and so glad
You came and never want to go back.
What a beautiful analogy of heaven.
I share this and one young girl thanked me.
Said she knew exactly what I meant and is less afraid of dying now.
This group,of teens were great one asked to speak to me privately
Asked that I give my jesi a big hug and thank her
For making younger gay roads a little easier.
