My Weekend With Mother Musique
I pray that you all had a great weekend. Mine was blessed. I have no complaints. My weekend was blessed. This past weekend my biological, Mother Musique, came in for a visit. It was special because as many of you know August 2013, I was able to finally meet her and a lot of her side of the family at my younger sisters' wedding.
I thank God for the weekend we spent together. We went shopping, ate dinner, and most of all, she got to see my dad, her ex-husband, for the first time in 27 years. My dad's reaction was priceless. We also took Mother Musique to see my grandmother, my dad's mom, and she also went to church.
It was a joy to have my mother in church and hear her say that she was in church with "my son." Mother Musique thoroughly enjoyed the church service and seeing me active in ministry.
However, I was thankful to hear a lot about her background and how she grew up in Alabama. That's a long story for another day.
There is nothing like a bond between mother and child. I feels as if I've known her all my life. We both look alike, we talk alike, and we both have similar ideas on life. Although, we've spent 27 years apart, my mom is very knowledgeable about a lot. She even talked a bit about her military experience. I am thankful because this is allowing me to learn about me.
Did I mention that she accepts the fact that I'm Gay and HIV Positive? We need more parents like my mom that love their children and won't disown them for whatever reason. God Bless,
