As Americans we have so much to be thankful for and we take so much for granted, which to me is so sad. I was brought up to say please and thank you and as a Christian I am extremely thankful for all we have, we don't have alot being a single mom on disability and all but I know there are many people out in the world who have so much less, so yes I am thankful for all we do have. And today as friends and families all over celebrate Memorial day, we need to be thankful to all the men and women who risk their lives daily to protect ours and pray for the families who have lost their sons or daughters or mothers or fathers fighting to protect our freedoms that we all love and cherish. Have a Blessed day with you're families and please take time to remember all the ones who gave all.
Every child is a blessing from the Lord and I was so blessed almost 17 years ago with a small baby boy, he was 2 months premature, weighing only 4lbs. and I have been raising him on my own for 14 years. Yes in those 14 years we have had many hard times, but I wouldn't change a thing, except to be blessed with a God sent Christian man to share our lives with, and I am still praying that the Lord will provide that Christian man, all in His timing. Being a single mom has got to be one of the hardest jobs in America. Before my son was born, I got toxemia and it was very bad, both he and I almost lost our lives, but thank the Lord we both survived, but the affects from the toxemia have messed up my body and I'm now on disability, Ive been hospitalized many times, my doctor said that it recked my immune system,it was that severe. I am thankful for all the Lord provides for my son and I everyday. For me being a Christian mom is such a blessing, even though my son doesn't have a earthly father who cares for him, he does have a Heavenly Father who loves him more than I ever could. Yes there are days that being a mom is hard, but I know with the Lords help my son and I will be fine. I hope all of you moms out there have a very Happy Mothers Day. Blessings to you all.
As a single Christian mom I feel that is important to stay involved with church actives. So this last Thursday - Saturday I got to go to a women's retreat.We had alot of fun and learned alot, but boy was I tired when we got back on Saturday. We had a excellent speaker. We were asked if we were crafty to make some crafts for the craft sale, so I made 2 kneenex box covers, one purple and one cranberry, the craft sale was to raise money for Operation Christmas Child, well not alot of crafts sold, including mine but I did give them away as gifts, one to the guest speaker and the other to a dear lady I know. Now I am planning for my sons and my summer vacation to Nevada to see our family. I pray that everyone is getting ready for a busy summer with you're children too. Blessings to all.
