Dear Single Mom,
I want you to know I notice you. I have now for a while. How did I miss seeing you before?
As I watch you I am blown away. I am in awe of all you shoulder, all you bear. Quietly. Without fanfare. Your tireless, selfless work. Your shoulders sagging a bit under all the responsibility. I don’t know how you do it. With no shoulder to cry on at the end of a long day. Who do you talk to when things are really hard?
I have left you out and I want to say I’m sorry. All the mom meetings, Bible studies, play dates, and “couple’s nights” you felt out of place or couldn’t attend because you were at work. My heart hurts to know I have done you wrong.
I want to know you. I want to include you. I want to cheer you on. I want to offer my shoulder when you need to cry.
I promise not to put you into a box or a “single mom” category. I don’t know your story, and I don’t need to. I just know you are amazing. You are beautiful. And I want to hear your heart.
And know that I see you and so does He.
Come to the table, pull up a chair and let’s start the conversation….
