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.
