Let me tell y'all something. This simple text from my sister made my entire day yesterday. Being a single parent is HARD! I don't always know what I'm doing. I question myself on a regular basis. Sometimes I compare my parenting to the parenting methods of others. I second guess decisions. I get frustrated. At times I want to cry. Sometimes I feel like I'm in it by myself (even though I'm really not).
I could fall into the never ending pit of despair wishing that my child's father was in the picture, but I choose not too. I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I don't get sad when she says she wants both mommy and a daddy in the same home, but I have hope in knowing that God has an amazing man waiting for us in the future. Plus I have an amazing village and that is a blessing.
Not everyone is blessed to have a group of amazing people leading them every step of the way. I thank God for the village He has given me that helps me, prays for me, encourages me, let's me know that I'm not alone, but most importantly they LOVE my baby with all that they have. We are great because we have a great support system. It's a blessing that I do not take for granted.
