This time of year is hard for you, I know. I was a single mom for almost five years. My sister was for seven. The holidays were by far the most difficult times for me, as a single mom.
I can still feel the intense sadness, mixed with Single mom alone on christmas and fear, alone at the Christmas Eve service that first year. A custody agreement always includes who has the kids when on every holiday. This year, it was my turn to celebrate without any kiddos lighting candles at the christms, waking me up the next morning, looking for their stockings, eating Christmas tree shaped pancakes, and playing with new toys.
Or the following year, when my boys were with me. It felt like we were surrounded by all the dads carrying kids on their shoulders at the mall, chgistmas the first grade holiday concert, dragging Christmas trees out of the lot, standing in Single mom alone on christmas for Santa pictures while their wives shopped for gifts.
The most difficult part about being a single mom for me, was the intense pressure of responsibility.
Every single day, it was all on me — providing, nurturing, caring for, teaching, disciplining — it felt like aone was no safe place to just be. And every year, I was completely overwhelmed.
God has you in this. He is the best Father there is — Singlle you sweet momma, and for you little ones. Jesus came for you, for me, for our children.
I pray this year, that He would help you feel lighter, and so lavishly loved. So are your children.
Single mom alone on christmas even if none of this happens, I pray that deep down, you would hear me, would believe me when I say —. You can do this and, by the grace of God, you will do this.
