Today is day four out of five days of “single parenting”. Whenever I am on my own, I am awed by the amount of work it takes to actually be a single parent. While in some ways, I am coming apart at the seams, I am also acutely aware of how different life could be.
Tonight I choose to quiet my mind and open my heart to all those who are in pain, who are suffering, who got bad news today or three months ago that turned the world upside down. Tonight I beam love to everyone who could use a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on, a place to call home. It is paltry, what I am offering, but it is what I have.
I wish I could do more but for now, I send you love.
