Mom I am gay and I have wanted to tell you for years …, those simple words, I wish I had been able to say to my mother before she died. I have never had the courage or found the right time like Jeremy or Jordan just did. I congratulate them for being able to say those words. If you had not read their stories stop by and wish them well. It is such a hard thing to do but hope fully so liberating to you both. On this mothers day I want to wish the best for your mothers also who appear to so accepting of you both.
Jeremy and Jordon are relatively new bloggers also, but we have a new AJ blogging also, he just started yesterday. His blog is coming out on the net and this AJ is a twin, that seems to be a bit of a new trend around here, but he is looking for a few friends to chat with and some readers. So please give him a look also, he is easy to chat with and he seems like a nice guy
My mother though, was not of similar mind of Jeremy or Jordan’s mothers, when it came to gay people as I know she had other beliefs. But today I thought I would tell her, I hope she is reading this post in heaven. Mom taught me a lot in life, she was Italian so she taught me to cook, she also taught me the value of money and how to save it, she also taught me that it is important to give back to others in life and she taught me her faith. She wasn’t perfect but she was my mother who in her own way cared about me and tried to be a good parent. They are not perfect parents; it just takes so many years to understand that about them.
Tomorrow I will go her grave and put some flowers there so if your mom is alive give her a hug tomorrow. My mom died from small cell cancer mostly associated with cigarette smoking I am led to believe in 2001 yet it seems like she was just here.
My mother loved her gardens. Whether it was her garden of family and friends or her gardens of flowers and plants, my mom nourished each with such love and care. Her garden of family and friends were important to her. My siblings and I reflect her in so many ways. We all share her love of learning, adventure, caring for others, cooking and gardening. Friends, our mother taught us, were to be respected and cherished for friends are as precious as rain is to a garden.
So i hope tomorrow is a good Mother's day for all and don't forget to give your mother a hug or a call, even if she has disappointed you lately, see beyond that if you can. Now my friends maybe you may understand bit better why i see you all as precious to me.
take care and be safe
