My friend gave me a book that really lifted my spirits. It's called "The Greatest Love...Being an Extraordinary Mom," by Loren Slocum. If you ever lose faith in yourself as a single mother, this is a great book to read. The author's not a single mother, but she really gets at what it means to be a great mom and still maintain your own life - which, as we all know, can be so difficult as a single mother.
I'm going back to Target to get copies for my friends in similar positions. Anyway, I just wanted to share with you because the book really inspired me!
