Always remember that by being a single mother, you have chosen to live a life that is first dedicated to your children and then to you. You could have had it easy too, but you decided to be there for your children, so be proud of it.
You lady are one courageous one, with the heart and the strength of two parents instead of one. So be proud of yourself and know that you are not single, you are fulfilling two roles and not just one.
Mom, you have a never ending to-do list. But make time for your children and for you to relax and enjoy the moments. You can always do the housework and other chores later, but you can never bring back the moments that your children spend while growing up. So enjoy it all and be there.
Thinking about what went wrong or what could have happened will only make you lose out on precious time and turn your positive strength to negativity. Work with what you have and make the best out of it.
You know that as a single mom, you are everything to your children. So instead of wondering what went wrong and feeling pity, tell yourself that you have it in you to stand up on your own and face the world. And you truly can.
As a single mom you have to play the roles of both a mother as well as a father. This is the most difficult aspect of being a single mom apart from the financial challenges. You have to pamper your precious children as a mother and also scold them like a father when they go wrong.
There are many that will be jealous of your independence and your strength, but when someone compliments you on what a wonderful job you are doing, accept it with an open heart. You truly deserve all the appreciation, so take it with the best of smiles.
A single mom tries when things are hard. She never gives up. She believes in her family, even when things are tough. She knows that above all things… a mother’s love is more than enough.
– Deniece Williams
