thankFULL

Thanksgiving visit with my father and stepmother was fun. My father is a bit curmudgeonly, but pleasant enough. My stepmother is great fun and a wonderful woman who prepared a fabulous meal.

There was some delightful irony in the other invited guests! I'm not out to my dad and stepmom, but I think she suspects. Nonetheless, they invited some neighbors from down the street, a lesbian couple! to share Thanksgiving dinner. They were great fun as well, and we had good food and lots of laughs. The older neighborhood where they live is a becoming a bit of a gayborhood! Fine by me.

I spent the night and went shopping with my stepmother on Friday, but NOT to the mall. She wanted to buy some things for me for my new digs. Very thoughtful! She's like that. Except for her taste in husbands, I can't fault her.

I DONT KNOW WHAT " KIND" OF ADDICT. SO I CANT COMMENT ON THAT [ AS LONG AS YOUR NOT HURTING YOURSELF OR OTHERS IT CAN BE OK].

for so many years i have prayed that it wasn't so

HUH? DUDE!!!!!!!!! LIGHTEN UP ON YOURSELF./ YOUR VERY WISE TO SAY YOU " MUST DISCOVER" WHO YOU ARE. BUT THAT COMES FROM WITHIN . . IF YOU ARE GAY THAT S COOL CAUSE YA KNOW YOUR CHOICES SEXUALLY , [ AND LIFE IS ABOUT CHOICES] AND IF OTHERS DONT LIKE IT SCREW EM! TIS YOUR LIFE NOT THEIRS...
how wonderfully powerful you must be to address these issues, and still feel you want to contribute to your own well being and others. .. GO JOE!!! you DA MAN ..
forget the DOGMA and the other nonsense. Christ loved ALL people . it’s the PEOPLE who hated Christ. [ gee maybe that's why the idiots KILLED him???]
keep on your path
it will give you knowledge
and KNOWLEDGE is the DIVINE LUMINOUS WISDOM that DISPELS all the DARKNESS[ i.e ignorance as taught by the seething mass’s of a collective consciousness that calls itself Christianity]. its NOT CHRIST they are talking about . its their own fear of this illusion we call reality. ..
gee that was a LOT of info huh Joe????
thanks for sharing :)

I suspect that your step-mom will have no problem with you when she finds out for sure. She sounds like a delightfully fun and gracious woman.

Your step-mom sounds really cool. Of course, we can't all be perfect.
