Be Content With What You CAN Do
It is easy as a single parent to get overwhelmed at the parenting task before you. One of the things to do when this happens is to focus on all the things that you can do as a single parent. One of those things is finding a mentor. This is someone who you can lean on even set up a weekly coffee/ lunch time to have someone to bounce of parenting ideas with. This must be a woman that you trust and someone who is very Godly, so that you know you are going to be getting wise godly counsel. The next area that you can look for support is family. Many family members would be more then willing to watch the kids, while mom spends a little bit of sanity time by herself, even if it is grocery shopping.
Finally and most importantly the person who you can lean on most for comfort and support is our Heavenly Father. It is amazing that the One who can give is the most comfort is often the One we go to last. Daily choose to give your situation and your children to God. Make it a daily absolute that you are finding time to spend in prayer and in scripture! Remember He knows about our circumstances, feels our pain and loves our children even more then we do!
