Single parenthood came as a bit of a shocker to me when their Dad and I split up. I thought I was already “doing everything” so it wouldn’t feel all that different, but I discovered that there’s no way to be completely prepared for parenting alone.
What I have found is that there’s a lot of love, hilarity and life lessons to glean from single motherhood. That old adage about what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger? Oh yes, friends, that quote and so many more speak to me even more keenly in my role as a single mama.
So while I could go on and on about my experiences in the past year, I think these movie quotes say it all. Can I get an amen?
