Thank GOD! This is the blog I wrote on my flight home from my Birthday Celebration. With cell phone use prohibited onboard the aircraft, I'm forced to entertain myself. I watched Borat a little while ago on my laptop HIGH 5!! Lol
Now I sit listening to my ipod and thinking about how blessed I am. I have an amazing family, one who accepts and respects me for the person God put me on this earth to be. Many things my family may not understand about me yet they continue to love me. I recently saw a wonderful play with my mother called 'A Day In The Life' *The play is about a day in the life of a Black Gay Man.* and there was one part that stuck in my mind because it made so much sense. There is a scene where one brotha lost his position in the church because they found out he was gay. He told the bishop that he has prayed and prayed to not be gay and that he is accepting himself for who he is. He says that prayer won't change the impossible but that doesn't mean it doesn't work. He follows with an example by saying he can pray everyday for the rest of his life to be a White man and he knows it won't happen but that doesn't mean that prayer doesn't work. My mom found that very interesting as she continues to learn the homosexual side of my life and so she will be able to defeat the many stereotypes that have been cast on the gay community. Thank GOD I have an educated mother, one who is willing to learn and read to better understand that which she doesn't know. As i was writing this blog i received an email from my mother. This is it.......
" B Free,
Being your mother is one of the greatest gifts in my life. It has been inspirational, and full of surprises. more than anything it has been personally you... you in what ever package, condition you present or represent. I am just blessed to be a vital and vibrant part of you and who you are. You can be a little crazy at times and that is a little scary because that is when people say you are most like me.
I will love you always and in all ways- Every day of your life and as long as I am breathing. And when that time comes and I am no longer breathing, I shall then become your guardian angel and will watch over you and protect you from dark days, evil people and those with out your best interest at hand. Have a very Happy Birthday.
I Love you enormously,
Your Fine mother "
Oh so greatful, so blessed, so myself! Stay tuned......
