I've been reading this thread but never posted, I guess. I am a single mom with three kiddos (my younger two are adopted), and I'm coming up on the fifteenth anniversary of my divorce. This is not exactly how I pictured my life would be.
I stay pretty busy most of the time, not dating
and I'm okay with that, but when it hits, it hits hard. I was caught off-guard this Christmas, looking up ideas for family portraits on pinterest, when I noticed that all the pictures had something in common. A dad. I just started sobbing, and I had to call my best friend to vent.
She's awesome, though, and I love her support. She offers me her husband for snake killing and taking my son fishing.
I am reading a really good book called My Single Mom Life by Angela Thomas, and I guess that's what got me thinking of all these things. It's from a Christian perspective, so if you're of that persuasion, I highly recommend it. Anyway, that's my holiday rant. Not on the ledge, but I creep out every now and then.
May all of you have a very happy new year!
