In Honor of the Single Mother on Mother's Day


This is to honor the single mother on Mother's Day.

Single mothers have one of the hardest jobs in the world.

She has to work hard both in and outside of the home and take care of her children.

She is often reviled by the media and politicians.

She is occasionally characterized as being immoral. She is judged for being single, and she is judged if she has a boyfriend.

Mothers have been judged for working outside the home when their children are young.

But the single mother is often judged if she is not working outside of the home.

There all kinds of reasons a mother is single; her partner may have left her or let her down in some way. Her partner may have passed away.

The single mothers I know work very hard. They juggle jobs and children. They sometimes do not have all that they need. They manage to make do with what little they have.

She is every day caring for her children, going to work, taking buses, and often having little time for herself.

Sometimes, the single mother let's someone else care for her child, a mother or a grandmother, or some other friend.

Her heart breaks at being away from her child, but she is doing what she feels best.

Today is mother's day, I want to honor the single mother.

She has one of the toughest jobs in the world.

She loves her children and gives everything she has.
