I had accepted it myself, but would they?

Have all those years of church finally gotten to their brain?

How would I tell them?

What could I do?

I knew that the only thing I needed to do was be true.

I walked into her room, clamy, shaking.

"Have a minute mom?"

Then I said it, those two little words.

"I'm gay."

My heart was pounding, I was sweating through my shirt.

She said nothing.

She cried.

But she surprised me that day.

See, I was sure she would through that book at me and send me to be "fixed"

but instead she held me and said that to her I was still perfect.

You are a very lucky girl to

You are a very lucky girl to have been blessed with such a mother. I hope your chosen lifestyle can help her adapt to a world changing in many ways. The tiny seed of acceptance within her will grow and touch many others if she keeps love as her guiding light. Blessings, I am glad to see you have learned of your writing skill and are nurturing it.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
