Father’s Day is not a celebrated holiday for most single mothers. There are more than enough absent fathers who have no regard for the lives of their children or consideration to help the mother of their children. As a single mom, I understand that Father’s Day is just another day. We celebrate our fathers and grandfathers, but the celebration comes to a halt when the father of our children is mentioned. I can admit that when my ex-husband and I separated, I was adamant that I would not do anything special for him. I was angry and bitter, and I could not understand the circumstances that had caused me to be a single mother.
So, this year I thought I would be creative and add a little spice to this Father’s Day celebration … recognizing the single mothers! Yes, you! You are doing the job of Mommy and Daddy, and you deserve a special celebration for your hard work and the unwavering love you continuously give to your child(ren). As Father’s Day approaches, I want to bless you with a poem because you are among the strongest group of women I know. On Sunday, June 18th, and every day, I am cheering you on! Be blessed, and kudos to you for a job well done.
