prayer for a single mother

This is for you single mothers......It helps to know Im not alone....have a good weekend.

Dear God, she seems to bear the weight of the world on her shoulders, but to carry it more lightly than I think I would. I see her balancing work and home, money and no money, friends who no longer make time to see her, and I send up a prayer for her.
Her old friends have moved on with their lives, and in truth, she doesn't have much in common with them anymore. She is lonely, loving God. She would like company but doesn't want to make time for new relationships because her waking hours are already full: she is a mother. She walks when gas is too expensive for the car and forgoes new clothes so her child can have shoes.
This is not how her life started out, but circumstances changed from her life of privilege to this life she embraces so fully. Her life is difficult and she seems so tired much of the time, but I am inspired by the love she has for her child.
Give her the strength to put in long hours each day; the courage to face those who dismiss her with blaming and knowing nods; the ability to maintain her loving life at home; and the deepest knowledge in her heart that you love her.

I love this. I was almost moved to tears.

I am proud to be a Mommy to my beautiful daughter. But sometimes she drives me crazy! And the minute, I need to leave her with my Mom, b/c school is out and I cannot afford alternate childcare, I miss her soooooooooooo much. So much, I don't know what to do with myself. Go figure.
