Life is not always fair for some. And one of those who get dealt a not so good hand at times is the, single parent.
There may be a reason or an excuse why one parent can not, will not take on their roll as a parent seriously or maybe because of a death. But either or, someone ends up being a single parent.
As a child I recall which parent played the good cop and which played the bad cop. Well what does a single parent do in that case? What an emotional struggle for that one parent who never rests from any title that is given usually to a set of parents, now takes on ALL titles with hopes that they are tough enough or leaniant enough at the right time for the child(ren).
There is no slushing off or getting free time as much as a set of parents can.
I was not a single parent but know of a few and my hats go off to you, and prayers as well as great vibes are sent out to each of you.
You will be rewarded.
“It’s like riding a bike, you never forget.”
I don’t believe that quote anymore, as I age.
There is many things I don’t recall how to do or what I did to achieve a positive outcome. Timing is every thing, it helps us forget and helps us remember. I ask a lot of questions of friends and family (Mom use to call me a, Question Box) and a lot of the time, the answer is, “I don’t remember.”
And what about the younger generation? Who think they know everything. I think I have forgotten more than they know, I just don’t recall half of what I know.
Memories are an important part of my life, I don’t live in the past, but I don’t want to forget it either. Because Mom had dementia and I do recall her frustration when she could not recall something. So, I will keep talking, asking questions and probing for answers. I love google!!..lol…
Keep sharp, be that 2 year old who constantly ask questions. You never know what you could learn, if you listen. But that is another subject, eh?. 😉
