The strength of a single mom....

As a single moms, we wipe snotty noses, clean dirty diapers, kiss scrapped knees, keep the clothes clean, feed hungry mouths, and learn to be self reliant.

We learn how to change light bulbs, fix creeky things, kill nasty bugs and protect our family from the things that go bump in the night....

Why do we do all of these things? Because that's our job, it's who we are and we do it out of love.....

We learn to be fiercely independent and we can build up walls that some can't tear down...and some days are lonelier than others and we make mistakes, and we use caution allowing others in our life..

Yes, we are independent and that's because we have to be, we have the courage to continue on each day because of the smiling wonders that are a part of our life...

Those are my strengths, and these are your strengths as well! Today might have been "just one of those days" for me, but tomorrow morning I'm going to wake up and will do life all over again! And hopefully tomorrow, I'll learn from my mistakes of today and be a better person and a better mom for it.

That's the strength of a single mom.....

That sums it up perfectly. I was having a rough day yesterday then my two year old tucked me in gave me a kiss and sang me a lullaby. That is exactly why I do it all. That amazing little person.
