I’ve spent the majority of my children’s lives as a single mom. Sometimes there are amazing perks. No one complains if I don’t want to cook and we have cereal for dinner. No one argues with me about discipline methods, the importance of healthy eating or that I believe children should be respected. On the other hand, there is also no second income or person to hand the children off to when I am at my wit’s end.
It takes an unbelievable amount of strength to do this seven days a week. When you need to find that strength inside yourself, are looking for inspiration or simply need to smile these quotes will help you get through the tough times.
