Someone Who Has Been There

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post "giving advice" to single mothers.  One of the comments on my post came from Kimberly of Mama's Monologues.

This was her comment:
Love this! I myself was a single mom for almost 6 years before I met my husband & it was by far the HARDEST thing I've ever done. You don't have the other person to fall back on when you need relief. People constantly judge you. There's been a lot of polls and article floating around lately about how single moms are negatively impacting society and it makes me so angry!!! I love your humor in this post...it's been some of the same exact thoughts I've been having myself! :)
I am not now, nor have I ever been, a single mom.  I honestly can't tell you what it really feels like.  Kimberly can.  She has written a couple of touching posts documenting her experience of being a single mom.  I encourage you to read them.  They will give you the chance to see through the eyes of someone who has been there.  While you are there make sure to subscribe because she will be continuing her story and you wouldn't want to miss it.

Seriously do yourself a favor and read her posts: My Biggest Struggles & Part 2

Thank you Kimberly for sharing this beautiful glimpse into the struggles you faced.
