I have thought about writing this post for a while, especially during Valentine’s month 🙂
Because boy, was the pressure on during Feb! My girls, God Bless them, are so ready for me to start dating. And remarry! #Jesustakethewheel
And they have given it some very serious thought. They had a serious list of reasons why they thought this would be a good idea. One of my favourites being, ‘so that you can have some help’. Like I live alone!
I appreciate their concern for me, and that they are looking at the right reasons – for the most part – for me to explore a relationship. I think they worry that I may be lonely or that I will always be single. What warms my heart is that they are okay. They understand that my relationship with their Dad has a different context now, and they are okay with that.
They feel safe and secure enough to be this open with me, and make their ‘concerns’ known.
It also reminds me of how important love is. For all of us, especially single-Moms.
So, to the magic-making-single Mom’s out there, let’s keep reminding ourselves that we deserve that love too.
Now – all that’s left is for me to pluck up some courage!
