Another Fathers Day has come and gone. I raised two Daughters completely on my own and I have to admit that this “holiday” is the closest to my heart. I wouldn’t change it for the world! I also am fortunate enough to receive thanks and gifts on Mothers Day which is very cool but Fathers Day has all the meaning for me. Through the years I’ve always frowned when someone mentions about single Moms and the challenges they face. With my situation I always wanted to shout out “HEY…what about single Dads?!” I totally understand but often wondered why it’s so uncommon that we don’t discuss single “parents” and not specific gender. But I now sound like I need the world to be politically correct and there’s nothing I dislike more so I’ll stop right there! To be fair I also wonder why we don’t honor single Moms on Fathers Day? Many Moms have to play the role of single Dad as well. So fair is fair and I salute the single Moms on Fathers Day as well. To ALL single Parents…it isn’t easy. I know!!! I salute you all and if you’re just going through this with young children all I can tell you is you will sacrifice many things personally for the sake of the kids. As mine are grown now believe me when I say that even those years I pulled my hair out, sacrificed a social life and so much more…it is SO worth it in the long run. So, if you are raising kids on your own, no matter if you’re a Mom OR Dad just know that I salute you on both Mothers AND Fathers Day. I hope you had a wonderful day! I certainly did!
