Being a mother is no easy task. You juggle a lot of activities and you wear a lot of hats, walk in a lot of shoes and try to keep your head on top of the water at the of the day to catch a breath for yourself. This is especially harder if you are a single mother. Also, being a single mother to a teenage boy doesn’t help very much either, does it? It is a pulling moment type of situation every single day, to be completely honest with you.
Of course, as no one is perfect, nor am I. I might not have put in 110% towards being the best mother every day. And I don’t even know if that’s even possible. Society has a way of adding unnecessary pressure towards women and mothers and make them feel guilty if they don’t come perfect at the end of every day.
However, the best reward is the love my son and I have for each other. I am proud of the person he is becoming and I know he always has his best intentions at heart. I hope one day he will understand how much love I have for him!
