Power is your second name
I admire you. I truly do. You are not only a Mom but also a Dad. Can you imagine how powerful you are? You do everything by yourself. And I know it’s a big challenge for you. I have a lovely husband who is helping me. He is doing a shopping, cooking and spending a lot of time with our son. And still, I feel sometimes like a shit. I cry a lot. I’m not sure if I’m a good Mom to my little boy. I failed so many times. But I have a supportive second half. And you? You need to struggle with all that shit by yourself.
Obviously, I do not describe here a Moms who abandoned their kids or neglect them. I talk about all single Moms who do everything to make their child happy. Very often you work on two or even three shifts. You don’t buy new clothes for yourself because your kids need a new pair of shoes so often that’s even hard to count. You just only want to raise your child to be a good person.
You are a role model
I don’t know if it’s means anything to you but I admire every bit of your strength. You are a role model to me. You should be proud of yourself. Being Mom is a hard job and you do it so well. You work hard to make sure your kids have everything they need. Paying all bill on your own need to be a huge pain. I almost can fill it. But still, you are able to provide a home, a safe place to live. You are so amazing. Remember it when you will have your worst days.
You are an inspiration
I know I will never understand what it is like to be you. But for almost 20 years I saw my Mom- single mom of three. And I know how hard it is. I know that you are hiding to cry out all your stress. I know you doubt if you are a good Mom. And I can tell you that you are even more than ‘only’ a good one. You are everything that your kids want. You are their light through the dark. You are an inspiration and the bravest person they know.
One day they will understand how much you did for them. In some way, you gave up too much of yourself for your kids. Only real Mom can do that. And you are one of them. Don’t forget that you are one of the superheroes.
