No one ever told me that life would be easy.
I wasn’t born with any silver spoons, nor did I have a head start in life.
My mother was a single mom and she did her best, but we were never rich.
I watched my mom struggle to raise us, me and my 4 siblings.
I think of all the nights she must of stayed up crying, thinking of how she would make ends meet to take care of us.
There is something so special about a mother and the love she gives. She could be exhausted from life, with little left to give herself and she still finds love in her heart to give.
Now that I am going through my situation and dealing with the struggle of single mom life, I understand her strength.
There have been several days in the last few months that I have sat back and I have wondered how do I get through this?
Everytime, I look to my mother and other single moms that I know and I see that it’s not easy but it gets done.
Yes I am tired but I still have to get up and take care of my family.
Yes I am confused as to why and want to know which way to go, but I still must go.
There are times that moms want to break down and do just that, but they find a way to pull through.
Mom’s are Super Heroes!!
Our greatest strength is that we don’t give up, no matter what life throws at us.
So I don’t know how my mom made it, raising five kids alone, but she made it, and did it with grace.
So if you are a mother just know that I salute you!
Nobody deserves more praise than a mother.
So as you go through the day take time to thank your mother or pat yourself on the back.
I know that it’s not easy but I also know it gets better later.
Your children will appreciate all you do one day, well I certainly do appreciate mines.
Thank you all for reading and remember to appreciate mother’s. Without their sacrifices where would we all be??
Have a great day!!
