Nights like this I wonder does a single mom know how to embrace balance? I’m reminded as to how we forget to take care of ourselves because our children need a bath and a story, so how dare we deny them of the basics….we don’t, we put our needs to the side. I’m sure that every single mom can relate to my dilemmas.
I should be sleep my alarm is set for 4:30 am but its 10pm and getting eight hours of sleep is officially not going to happen. I wonder how many of you single moms are up right now thinking or working on how you can become better or simply gathering your thoughts so you can endure tomorrow. This is private time to reflect and not by choice but when the day has sat on your shoulders you must find a way to release so you can sleep.
I’m a single mother and I work harder than I play, I encourage myself to get up and get it done and I appreciate any help along the way. I sincerely think about my contribution (Jaxon) to this world and how he will conduct himself when I’m no longer around and that keeps me on my toes, but tonight I confess that I’m tired. I confess that I would like to sleep in but I can’t. Instead I will go to sleep, get up in the morning, take a deep breath, put one foot in front of the other and make it happen.
I’m thankful that I have some positive things to experience in the near future. I’m thankful that I have to opportunity to express myself. I’m thankful that I can admit that being a single mom isn’t easy.
