“Where is Daddy?” she inquired of her mother. Her mother told her that her father had relocated to work in the province. Her mother persuaded her “Don’t worry. Mom is here for you, kid.”
Since the child was about five years old, the single mother has raised the child on her own. Every day is a new blessing and a new day of survival for both of them. She gets up at 4:30 a.m. to prepare breakfast and lunch. She rushes to get the child to school and then heads to work from dawn to dusk. These two beautiful lives and souls are one, and they share endurance and joy.
During the challenging circle, the mother was working, pursuing a master’s degree, and solely raising the child. After all, she was capable of dealing with anything.
To all the women out there in the world who are suffering and struggling to raise their kids solo, you are the strongest woman ever. You’ve got to train your mind that you can make it better for your kid and yourself. Tomorrow is going to be a great day. The only thing that matters most is that you fill your mind with positivity and learn to be comfortable in the uncomfortable.
