I was lucky that I had family close by to help out.
I worked hard, Two jobs for a long time.
Sometimes I felt like a failure
Sometime I thought I couldn't do it anymore
Sometimes I thought nobody understood how tired I was
Sometimes I would wish I had a friend that understood how hard it was to do this by myself
But then, my darling little girl would wrap her arms around me and tell me,
"I love you Momma" and I would be rejuvenated. Ready to take on the world!
Picture of a picture (sorry for the poor quality but it's one of my fav's)
I am really close with my daughter. In fact, I would consider her my best friend. She inspires me, loves me and makes me proud every day.

Today, I woke up got my coffee and logged into Face Book .... And saw this post.
It made me smile. It made me proud. It made me want to think of every single mom I've ever know and nominate them to win. Not just cuz they could win the cutest sign ever... but because it was a chance to recognize them. To let them know that we are proud of them and that they are not alone.
So I thought I would nominate the best single mom I know right now. I want her to win one of these darling Barn Owl Primitive signs that Little Miss Momma is giving away on her blog.
She is a great Momma. She is single and a hard working Real Estate Agent. She put the needs of her darling daughter Sierra first. She struggles like we all do to find a balance between supporting her daughters financial need and giving her quality family time. She makes goal boards with her, She plants vegetables with her, she decorates her room, dances to Miley with her, goes to her Soccer games, picks her up early from after school day care and gives her all kinds of love. She teaches her to be nice to everyone and that everyone has something special inside them. Sierra is a sweet, thoughtful little girl that goes out of her way to make everyone feel special. Sierra like everyone and has a special place in her BIG heart for the underdog.
Teresa and I have drifted apart ... But I still think she is a wonderful Single Momma.
If Teresa won I would select this sign for her. Beach Rules she also lives Buy The Beach
or maybe this one Playroom Rules
Oh wait... maybe this one. Family Rules
I'm sure we all know a fantastic Single Momma. Join me in making someones day.
What great single momma do you know?
