I know that last Sunday was Mother's Day, and by all means I thought I did a pretty good job - my mom seemed pretty happy. But that was last Sunday. Just a week later, my Mother's Day gift is looking a bit shabby. Thanks a lot, Dwyane Wade. He just bought his mom a church.
Having gone from prisoner and drug addict to clean and sober, Dwyane's mom Jolinda is a success story. And having turned around her life, she tried to help others, starting a ministry. And now she's got her own - - Temple of Praise.
"I respect my mother so much, from the life that she used to live and to see her today in the life that she lives. I'm so proud of her,'' Dwyane Wade told The Associated Press before the service. "Everybody thinks I'm the miraculous story in the family. I think she is. I think what I've done means I've been very blessed, but she's been more than blessed. She's been anointed.''I know Dwyane was a week late with the gift, but I think we can forgive him. In a society that often does the opposite he's treated his mother with love and respect. And he's given her a gift that can be returned over and over.
So Dwyane's gone out and done a good thing...kudos to him. At this point the only real question left is was Star Jones with him?
