I’m a great Mom because I have survive. Parenting alone can be overwhelming, trying, and lonely but I make it look fun and adventurous. The greatest gift I have given myself is to focus on one day at a time. For so many years I would worry about tomorrow, the next week, and the next week, and the next week after that. I was literally mentally drowning and emotionally killing myself. Life is hard enough so why worry about the troubles ahead, just focus on the worries of that day! I have survived two separations from my husband, varies disappointments, and hardships but I have NEVER stop being a great mom for my boys. They are my reason I choose to keep pushing and striving to be a better me. I’m a great Mom because I am a survivor!
