Happy Thanksgiving!

I know it has been a long time since I have blogged, and I am sorry. I don't have a computer, so it makes it a little difficult...I am taking donations for one though...ha! Today was a wonderful day spent with my mom, her husband, his daughter, my brother and Jonathan. It was a very good day. My mom is an excellent cook, and I really missed being away from her all those years.

I know I have a lot to be thankful for, and I just wanted to reflect over the past year, I won't blog about it, because it's not worth it. I learned a lot about others, relationships, motherhood, myself and God. Too many questions have been left unanswered, and I'm asking God to give me peace about it. There is still anger and hurt in my life, and I'm trying desperately to let it all go.

To all you single mothers out there, you are amazing. I don't know how you do it. As of tomorrow I will have been a single mother for a year. It is so difficult...so emotional and so draining. How do you balance your lives? There are days when I feel like I'm barely hanging on. There are days when I feel like I've let go...and I'm falling...and failing. If you know a single mother...give her a hug. Ask her if there is anything you can do for her...even it's just watching her children for and hour so she can go get a haircut. The littlest things make the biggest impact. Trust me. Actually, it's not just single mothers...if you know a single mother or father...I have met a lot of really great single dads who are just as worn out...!

A big thank you to all who have made this year a little better for me...
