Grateful

Eyes heavy questioning my ability to succeed and provide for my family.

Internal conflict, forced too often to choose one over the other.

Grateful to be surround by those who see the good tomorrow, and not only the absence of it today.

Another Day

Another day has come and gone.

Another day with unexpected (as in you can’t write this stuff) issues.

Daunting as it may be, I’m looking forward to putting the pieces back together. Perhaps then rest will come.

All the single __________

Kristi is gone at her annual Woven retreat for adoptive and foster mothers. At least that is what I think it is. I’ve been the primary care giver for our four children since about 2:00pm yesterday or roughly the last 31 hours. With another 15-18 hour ahead of me I think I’m quite qualified to make a mass sweeping generalization.

Single parenthood is exhausting.

This isn’t about me though. I’d rather take a step back and acknowledge the hard working individuals who are raising families on their own, whether by choice, circumstance, or events out of their control. I humbly applaud your work in giving love, care, discipline, and support to your kids while likely receiving very little back for your self. You are amazing, and I hope those around you can see it. Keep up the incredible work.
