There are many single mom’s raising children on their own today. They work hard and dedicate themselves to their families. I applaud their efforts to give the best home for their dear children.
Recently, I met a mother with a nine year old son who has inspired me with her love.
She works as a waitress nights and weekends and devotes her time to her son and home.
She tries to be everywhere for him. She gets him ready in the morning for school, meets him at the bus, helps him with school work and sets up his dinner as she prepares for her night job. She dresses for her job, has a sitter watch her son and prepares for a long night of waiting tables until 11p.m.She gets home with little time for herself, goes to sleep for the night and begins the same routine the next day. She never complains. She is so happy to have work and her beautiful son in her life.
When I met her son, he was so well behaved and talk about how lucky he was to have his mother. He drew me a picture of her. She had lines around her head. When I asked her what that meant , she said his mom is like an angel, with a halo around her head.
Such a beautiful love story of mother and son. I thought that they may not have a lot of things in their life but they have what matters, a great love and devotion for each other.
They have the greatest abundance of joy in their lives.
I am sure there are many single mom’s with the same story. I applaud their devotion and love for family.
The recent events that have tragically wounded Orlando, Florida are shocking.The hatred towards American’s. The pure lack of humanity leads me to ask so many questions. How does a man’s heart turn to stone? How does one reach a dark place where human life does not matter? He must have been an innocent child once! How can one turn so evil over a lifetime ? Yet, he did the unthinkable, shooting 50 beautiful human beings in a most callous and evil way.
As a mother who lives in a family of love, I cannot comprehend such an evil deed.
Mothers,fathers and family members it is more important than ever to promote love as the antidote to such darkness. Let us work very hard to teach our children that love is indeed the answer to a more compassionate world.
Our influence on our family to respect and care for one another is the greatest contribution we can make to our society.
Let us teach tolerance to our children. Let us begin with great respect for family members and all cultures. The horror that we are witnessing on TV is our call to action.
Yes, we can turn the tide by raising children who are loving and empathetic to others. We must not tolerate what we see on TV. We must look around us and speak to authorities if we see something that is dangerous in our day to day world.
See something, say something must be our mantra.
As busy as all families are today, we must make time and plant the seeds of kindness into our child’s life. We have a moral obligation to raise our children with goodness.
All good must begin at home. That is why a parent has a huge responsibility when raising a family. Get back to the simple code of moral conduct. Our world is grasping for
this light. We have a great influence on our children.
Let us use our power to bring tolerance, kindness and love back into our world!!!
The time is now!!!!
