When you come on Cafemom and read the stories of other moms.......

do you ever just feel so lucky??

I complain a lot about money and not having enough time to do anything and after reading stories on here I just think how LUCKY I am to have a wonderful, supportive husband and a great little toddler and a baby on the way. I have the best family (Both my husband and I do). I couldn't imagine going through what some of these women go through on a daily basis. It saddens me to see how awful life can be for some and I wish there was something I could do.

  • Yes I agree. I feel so sorry for some of the ladies on here that seem so sad and have it so hard!

  • sometimes I feel glad that I'm not the only one to feel this way and other times, I'm happy that my life isn't as messed up as some.

  • lol, if I make you see the bright side in your home, that is good. I have never come in here to downplay anyones life or to make anyone feel sorry for me. I try my best to give strength to other women who are in the same situation I was in. I have been a single parent for 7 yrs..because of domestic violence my ex went to jail and got a felony conviction for it. I have no family to rely on at all,,,,heck for the past 7 yrs I have been on my own. I am so grateful for what I do have. You may have more, you may have an amazing family. But my kids and I are pretty awesome. My dd will be a senior this coming year and somehow and someway and by the grace of God we have made it. I am so grateful for what I have. what I salvaged, I hold my children so tight in my heart every single day..and they know they are loved.

  • Absolutely. I AM very lucky. However, I knew that long before I ever visited Cafemom. :)

  • Me too ( feels lucky ) .... I always see other moms upset because they think their SOs are cheating or on drugs..... or that their childs father isnt apart of their kids lives......And even though I complain about my husband is a jerk alot of times... I feel lucky because he works hard so I can stay home with our kids... he is a good father...he doesnt go out and drink and I honestly believe that he would never cheat and I know he would never do drugs or anything like that.
