DEAR MOTHER

I would like to send this to all the mothers around the world because you   deserve thanks!

Dear Mother,

I love and cherish  you  for all you’ve done for me.

Thank you for keeping me safe and giving me a feeling of being free.

Although, I made mistakes that could have led me into a lot of trouble.

Because of your love and guidance, God has decided to bless my life with double.

I never knew how much I should appreciate you until I raised my own children.

And how you wore all those hats playing chef, doctor, teacher, mother and friend.

Mother Son

Even when I didn’t understand everything you said it would become clear for a good chase.

Now that I understand, I salute you and know that you could never be replaced.

By the way, I apologize for the times I didn’t listen to your wisdom you took time to share.

All along you were trying to protect me and help me see my way because you truly care.  

 A Rose for Moma

While observing commercialized businesses celebrate Mother’s Day yearly.

It gives me a chance to remember your hard work so I honour you dearly.

I know we can’t ever repay you for your time and effort given like an angel from above.

But through my appreciation and gratitude as your son I would like to say thanks for all your love.

So since I realize how much you care and have my back with great merit.

Now I can live a long healthy life just as you taught me always giving you and God all the credit.

 Thank You Moma

Thank You Mother!

Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your

Love to  my mother Rose!

Single Parents are things wearing you down?

While being a single parent, I raised my children full-time, worked full-time, enrolled in college, did volunteer work for a charity organization and helped out at church. Oh, of course, don’t forget about pay all the bills. I cut that schedule in half because it was wearing me out. After raising my children and see them graduate from college, “I thought my work on earth had ended”. I was tired and ready to take a permanent nap.

 Graduation

Since, my ex-wife didn’t help me; I realized early on that I was on my own. That was painful but I managed to handle my responsibilities and move on with my children to raise.  She only showed me what she weren’t willing to do like raise kids. Her leaving us made it possible for me to raise my children in peace and with fewer distractions.

Read More

Also, I could read books and learn how to help my children without her always complaining about me going about things based on education and spiritual intuition. It also eliminated unnecessary arguments and helped me with my mission to  raise healthy children. I’m not saying marriage is bad. I’m only saying have the right partner. And be willing to do your part as single-parent.

 Single Parent Juggle

Obviously it’s not healthy to take on too much and try to juggle more than you can handle. It’s wise to ask for the help you need. My family was good for babysitting when my children were small. But as they reached 8 and 9, I took my children everywhere I went. My alone time was after the children had gone to sleep.

Children and family members must be sensitive of your needs and respect you as a single parent because there are some drawback moments that put you on edge.

My friends never knew how on earth I seem to manage all the things I did. As much as I love my children. I didn’t realize how much raising kids had aged me and became somewhat uncomfortable at times.

Aging

The more you learn and the smarter you become. You will find ways to slow down aging. The key is to avoid things that create stress and depression from occurring.

Read all you can and listen to what children are saying. Also, listen for what they don’t say. You have to read between the lines to understand how to communicate well with them. This way you can have peace of mind and prevent unnecessary stress.

You deserve to live long and strong while raising your children. Just because you are a single parent doesn’t mean you need a partner. You just need to be wise and know your boundaries brothers and sisters. And don’t allow kids or people to wear you out and use you. People don’t know how you really feel behind the hard work and smile.

Live A Little

Therefore, every chance you get, spend quality time with yourself and treat yourself to a great time out on the town alone or with someone you enjoy. Before you know it they will be gone unto another life with the person they call important. Meanwhile, have balance and enjoy what you call important.Spend Time Having Fun

God bless you so keep reading and listening to your intuition.

Grandmothers and mothers need love too!

Grandmothers

 

Are you a mother or grandmother who does everything for your children and grandchildren?

Does everyone in your family depend on you to do everything?

By the way, grandmothers have been single parents for quite some time now.

In the U.S. children living with grandparents has risen since 2005 FROM 4.7/M TO 5.4/M BY 2010

Grandparents are made up of grandparents and grandchildren households.

Back in the day grandmothers did everything. They cook for the family, dress the kids, wash clothes, took us to church, and fix the sink if necessary.

NOTE: Don’t try to do everything by yourself grandmother.

  • Allow family members to serve you.
  • Know when to pull back and take a break
  • Go on vacation
  • Enjoy yourself every chance you get

 QUOTE: When our grandmothers live long & strong lives we all have someone to teach us how to live!

Grandmothers and mothers are important!

HOUSE BURNED DOWN

Have you ever needed to be rescued? Well my family did. Who could be better than a grandmother or a mother? My family knows and so can yours. The first chapter in my book titled “The Blueprint For Survival As A Single Parent”, talks about how important grandmothers are to a family. Also, why they should be honoured and loved for their parental bravery.

When my mother was pregnant with me our house burned down. She ran in one night and saved my father and siblings from burning in the fire while they were sleep.

She became our hero and everyone gives her credit for rescuing her family. Today my mother is 81 years old and is still the hero in our family since that day.
