Working on a ‘solid‘ prayer…

On a prayer their morning starts,
Seeking wisdom, guidance and Divine light
dedicated single working moms (and dads)
Silently and solidly running their households far from the rich and famous,
No nannies, chauffeurs or personal assistants,
just children, and a few of the neighborhood ones too, fishes in a bowl and the family dog whose name gets mixed in the lot when a frantic parent names out every child’s (and dog’s) name simply because they momentarily forgot the one child they were trying to address
dedicated single working moms (and dads)
For the sacrifices in both time and effort, here is an appreciation ‘hug’

Found in a few simple words, given to honor you and to let you know how valuable you are:

“Single working moms (and dads) are teaching their kids a solid work ethic;
You’re teaching them that we don’t just have things handed to us, and we have to work for the things we want.” –Unknown

*****************************

Everyday find something new to pray for…
… All single parents living a life of sacrifice and with the intention to raise their children with a solid work ethic by being the role model for their children.

Has your community been affected with many ‘solid’ single working parents and how are they reaching out to support these parents?

      Parenting is never an easy job and to do it well and on your own is a mighty task–

    Great post, Sunshine. Single mothers and their hectic life deserve a tribute and a helping hand. In our community they made everything more easy for single working moms in the first place, like unpaid or low prices creches for the children, adapted workingtimes a.s.o., but now we changed the parliament, everything has changed and mainly the life of a single mother has become very tough. Deep respect to all of them 🙂

      Hmm, wonder if your parliament needs more single parents working on staff so they can implement changes in their favor?
      It’s a tough road for sure and any support for them I am sure helps.
      Glad you shared the problems your country is having…it seems to be a worldwide epidemic, unfortunately.
