What does it feel like when your son tells you he's gay?
Your heart starts racing and you can't catch your breath
Tears spring to your eyes...and you can't stop them
All current hopes and dreams disappear in the blink of an eye
Everything runs in slow motion
You want him to take the words and stuff them back in his mouth so the future doesn't have to be altered...but the words hang in the air....so you embrace them and him.
Everything is different and everything is the same
You love and accept and cry a bit and love and fight for and learn about and love and breathe and hold on tight........ and New hopes and dreams are made....and you find peace.
The Future is a fickle thing. Plans change. Life happens. People leave you. The family expands and grows and looks different than you ever thought it would.
Here's what I know for sure, God loves us all. He knows what we are going through. God's love is eternal and so are the truths found in His gospel. Our job is to love and find joy!
1 Nephi 11:17
..."I know that he loveth his children, nevertheless, I do not know the meaning of all things."
