The Elephant in the Room

Hi there, red wine is my calming place to find peace and my celebratory moments for getting through some of life’s toughest struggles. As a single mom, I had a glass of wine when my daughter turned 18 because that was the year she graduated from high school. We both had fulfilled a tremendous accomplishment in our lives. Then another glass, when she turned 21, because of my new found freedom, I was getting my life back!

Let me digress for a moment, the journey was long and difficult at times. I reflect back to when I found out I would be parenting by myself. I was about 3 or 4 months pregnant and I told myself, you can do this with God and my family by my side. Every mother’s journey is different in how they came to be single parenting, but I never forget the choice I made along the way to single parenting.

Ultimately, I chose the father and therefore because of my choice came the circumstances of that choice, good and bad. So even though I can’t go back and undo all of the bad decisions, as I look back on how much I have gained and how far I have come, that glass of Red Wine along with my favorite pair of heels are the rewards for the good choices out weighing the bad ones. Celebrate mom and keep pressing forward!

Mom, remembering your choices you cannot undo, what better decisions can be made that will get you to your victories ?
