I just read through the "Hardest part of being a single Mom" and my heart goes out to everyone who is a single parent and posted replies as I had myself. But I read one post from someone who said, the "BEST PART" of being a single Mom .... and I was thinking that even in the darkest moments of our "single motherhood" we can see the JOYS of being a single parent. My boys are soon to be 15 and 12 and I've been a single Mom most of their lives, but was actually divorced 4 years ago. We were part of an abusive relationship and being away from that life now, with the help of the LORD, I can see so many parts of our lives that I would never take back. The best part of being a single mother to me, is the close relationship that I have with them. Because it's just you and your child or children, they only have you to depend on and trust and talk too. Don't take that for granted!! Love to hear your responses.
