Since I was a little girl, I've loved three things reading, writing and photography.  I started blogding to explore these three activities by telling stories about myself.  However, I also have a passion for single mothers.  I've been one myself for the past 19 years.  There have been times when I was grateful for someone who gave an encouraging  word or who told me a story about their life.  It made me feel like I wasn't alone.  That is not a feeling that comes by easily for a single mom.  Often times we are overwhelmed and we feel hopeless. We wonder if we are messing up our kids because we don't know what we are doing.

And it wasn't always about money -- a home, food or clothes -- although many times it was.  Oftentimes, all you wanted was for someone to listen without giving their opinions or to cry on someone's shoulder without being judged.  By blogging,  I hope that sharing my everyday experience will give a single mom an idea or make her laugh, even for a moment.  Maybe there is something that will lead you to that job you are seeking or that resource that can provide much needed help.

This is why I blog. Maybe, just maybe, someone will learn something to make life just a little less challenging.  Go ahead, Make it Yours!
