Dear Single Mom:
Being a single mom can be the best thing in the world! I know it doesn't always seem like it.
Single moms have long had a stigma around them. I can't count the number of times I heard, "awww, you're a single mom." Then I got a hug or a look of pity. But I always actually thought that was B.S.
I believe this: Single moms are rock stars! The real truth is that you are fantastic! amazing! wonderful! The longer you're a single mom, the better it can get. Your kids don't need an immaculate house or a perfectly cooked dinner. What they need is you, with a smile on your face, lovin' on them every chance you can get.
You're doing the hardest job ever and you're making it look easy. You're keeping the lights on, the clothes clean, making breakfast, lunch and dinner, buying groceries, cleaning the house, helping with the homework, doing great at your job. Look at all you do!! You're amazing!
My wish for you is that you realize how great you are, how great your kids are, what the lessons are you're meant to get from being a single mom. Then, keep doing what you're doing! While you're at it, roll up your sleeves and get busy creating your dream life (or expanding the dream life you're living).
The best is yet to come!
