Love it

Two years ago I separated from my husband and I was eight months pregnant with my fourth child (our third together). Almost a year ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. Those two events alone have changed my life.

I am finding myself again. Realizing what makes me happy. And determined to never let anyone’s essence replace my own. I will never sacrifice who I am to please another or just to keep the peace. That means I am re-discovering who I am at this stage in my life.

I never thought I would be a single mom again - let alone a single parent to four children ages 2, 4, 5 and 18, but - I supposed - in the end the change is good. I am growing, learning, exploring and experiencing life one day at a time.

Hopefully, one day in the near future, I will also begin to enjoy life and look forward to what the future holds.

    • happyGod bless you my friend you‘re not the first nor will you be the last to have to go through life raising your children alone without the father present in the home. I did it with my two daughter from the ages of 7 & 11 and they are now 25 & 28 and both doing very well for themselves all praise be to God for it was He who kept me strong and helped me through the midst of it all. Its never easy going it alone in parenthood, but you can and you shall make it! It is so unfortunate that some men just don’t care about the outcome of their childrens well-being in divorce and they go on living their private lives and seeming to not have a care in the world. I for one was NEVER about the child support from my ex husband, I wanted him to be an active physical part of our kids lives but he had a different agenda that is partly why we ended up in divorce but God. So my friend keep your head to the sky and draw your strength from our Lord, you shall make it.happy

    • We are here for you, to encourage you when you need it, and surely to offer advice, as Neicy pointed out, there are many single parent households without the father being involved. I for one have found it 100 times easier without the dad trying to undermine me at every turn, my kids are awesome and I get to take all the credit.  

      Enjoy your journey as you rediscover yourself!
