5/21/11 Love of My Life

Love of My Life

In my past blogs, I have written about the trials and tribulations of being a single mother.  Today I want to write about the other feelings behind being a single mother, the joy!   

There are so many moments when I look at my son and I can’t envision my life without him.  I, sometimes, try to remember what my life was like before he was born, and I can’t imagine him not being here.  I sit back and wonder what my days would be like if I wasn’t rushing him to practice or running him to and from school, but above and beyond all the difficult moments, is the joy he brings to my life, every day.  

Sometimes it’s just a simple hug, or a smile, and that’s when I know that there is nothing else that I would rather be doing.  I want to be this boys mother, I want to teach and guide him, I want to prepare him for the world, and I want to nurture him and keep him safe. 

This is the gift that I have been given and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  He is the love of my life.

  1. What a blessing to hear a mother speak that way. You’re a star lady – and I salute you. Go well with you and the lucky object of your affection.
