Remembering and celebrating single moms on Mother’s Day


MothersDaySingle moms deserve the honor of being acknowledged on Mother’s Day. When you get to know a single mom you begin to realize they are the most determined group of people you will ever meet.

Here are just a few things that is takes to be good single mom

  • Grit
  • Gumption
  • Fortitude
  • Gentleness
  • Dedication
  • Strength
  • Loyalty to your convictions
  • An enormous amount of energy
  • The ability to exist on two and half hours of sleep and still function the next day
  • The ability to go without eating just so your kids will be able to eat
  • Creatively budgeting when there isn’t enough money to make it until the next pay day
  • Creativity (I’m sure it was a single mom who first used the newspaper Sunday comics as wrapping paper for a birthday present. And she probably did it five minutes before the ride to the birthday party arrived!)
  • The ability to forgive beyond reason
  • The ability to share her kids with another “mother” with grace and dignity
  • To be able to laugh, kid around and truly enjoy her kids whether she has them for a day, a week or 24/7
  • The ability to juggle schedules as if she were the CEO of a large company
  • The ability to discipline her kids fairly
  • The ability to disciple her kids in the Word
  • Faith in God to provide for every need
