Being a single mother

Being a single mother is extremely hard, most days I just want to stay in bed and watch Netflix or sleep. But when you have kids you have a responsibility and your life is about more than yourself, you have little ones that rely on  you everyday.

Some days are harder than others, most days I get overwhelmed and want to give up and honestly I would of given up by now ,especially with the loss of my future husband.

But the love I have for my children mean more to me than my own selfishness, I want my kids to be happy and to have everything they want and need. Whereas, I have to work my butt off to provide for my kids, but that’s what I want for my children, to also see that if you really want something and if you put your heart into something enough, you can  have anything you want.

I would do anything for my children, I want them to grow up and realize no matter what and no matter how hard life gets or weighs on you, you CAN get back up and keep going! That yes! Life can have its ups and down, and no matter what life throws at you, the world keeps turning and you are here for a reason!  So keep going my children, life gets better and God will bless you tremendously.

Being a single mother will sometimes bombard you with life challenges that would make dealing with much easier if you weren’t single. Such as errands, disciplining the kids, tending to the baby while soaking in the tub, or knowing the house is protected simply because he is present. Sometimes we as women must learn to be comfortable when there is no man in the house.
