Black and Baptist
I think I was meant to be born black and baptist. I watched Whitney Houston's funeral today and I find those preachers speak to me. It doesn't hurt that they are entertaining. I have become opinionated about funerals since I had to plan one first hand and I will say as far as funerals go and though we would expect nothing less it was a great one. I also like that it was a going home ceremony. I should say I like it for her with her strong faith and unwavering belief in Heaven. For me and how it pertains to Ailish when I continue to harbour anger and resentment about her death I wouldn't use it. Perhaps after more healing has occurred (I know you're all thinking it's almost a year all ready, snap out of it!) I will use the phrase and with true belief that Ailish was called Home. That is to be seen. I shall definitely keep you all informed in this possible progression.
