Life as a single mom, giving back and serving others!
Being a single mom can be a challenge. Some days are laid back and some can be stressful it all depends on the day. No matter how many things you have going on in your life, you always try your best to do it all. Ever since I became a single mom, life has not been all peaches and cream, but it’s not any worse either. I have been taking care of my two children by myself for over 4 years and it has been an unpredictable journey. This journey has been such a learning experience and opportunity for growth. I have learned the following things:
- It takes a village to raise children.
- Even at my lowest points,I am loved dearly by my family.
- Being a mom is the best thing in life.
- Help people as much as possible because you never know what someone is going through or has been through in life.
While working at Helping Mamas, I have been able to give back and serve mothers and children in need,the greatest experience in life. I am so happy I was given this opportunity to be a part of Helping Mamas because I figured out my passion career-wise, which is serving the community. This is something I struggled with for many years especially after all the challenges I faced in life. I learned that sometimes you must go through things in life to put the puzzle together.
Based on my own personal experiences, I know what these mothers are going through and even though we all have different stories we can still relate in some ways. I know for sure we have one thing in common and that’s being the best mother we can be to our children.
Lastly, we as single moms, are not alone in this world and there are genuine people out here to support us!
