And now we are all vegging out watching Lady Gaga
So I've decided to post the "unthankful" things I'm thankful for in my life.
Being a Single Mom
Being a single mom is not easy (duh). I've been blessed these past eleven years of single parenting. My frustrations and tears are many, but the accomplishments and joys far outweigh the hard times. Of course this is not the way I wanted to raise my child, but that's ok. We've made the best of it.
The closest family I have is about 300 miles away. My mom and step-dad, siblings, and niece live in South Carolina (which is where I am for Thanksgiving). It has been seven years since they moved to South Carolina. I have become more independent and also value family relationships so much more. And, I love being an aunt!
