Default Thank you

Thank you for posting this response from Shirley, Brit. While my mother and I certainly do not have a strong connection, I know she has only wanted the best (in her eyes) for me--even if that comes in the form of trying to pray my gay away. So, from Shirley's response to the pain her daughter has inflicted, I will try to be more mindful of my treatment of my own mother and will try to treat her a little bit better and with a little more care and respect even if we are worlds apart on so many levels.

Thank you for the reminder.

Two hands together from the Smoky Mountains,
Steph

Peace to all...
