The Best Christmas Present

When I came home from work today, right as I walked in the door, my mom gave me a hug. I could tell she had been crying. She then proceeded to tell me that she had read the first half of In Quiet Desperation by the Matis's and Ty Mansfield.
First off, can I just say that the guy on the cover looks like he could be really hot? For some reason the picture reminds me of Cyclops from X-men, which makes me think of James Marsden. Mmm...
Now I haven't read this book yet, but my friend had said that it had helped his parents accept his homosexuality, so I was quite happy to hear that my mother had bought it.
This entire Christmas break, my stay at my parents' has been essentially one argument after another with my parents. Every day my sexuality had to come up, and our disagreements led to an overwhelmingly un-merry Christmas.
I received a few little presents out there, but the best Christmas present I've received this year is the hope radiating from the hug my mother gave me today.
