Reader of the Month for June - Jenniffer A.
She sat down and read the entire blog from beginning to end in one sitting and has shared it with her sister (another single mom) and her entire group of Facebook friends. (Big Smooches to her for this!!!)
Since then, we've shared stories and compared notes. She tells me how inspired she is by me, but I'm also inspired by her. Her strength and will are obvious and it makes me realize the impact of why I do this. Although I love getting emails from anyone who has enjoyed the blog, it means even more to be a small part of inspiring someone else and giving them encouragement to get back up off that mat one more time alongside me. We suit up and go into battle again. This hot, feisty, lil single mama and I are gonna be the ones kicking life's ass and not letting it kick ours. I'm grateful to have met her and I'm so glad she found the blog.
Here are her own words about The Single Mom's Dating Diary:
I look forward to grabbing my coffee in the mornings and reading your updates. Its like getting your daily does of 'girl-talk', while sharing the occasional heartbreak that all us single moms often feel we face alone. It's refreshing to read a witty and honest capturing of real life dating in the shoes of a fellow mom. Not the sugar coated spews of a glamorized life, but an honest account by a regular mom, making it day by day in the comical (and sometimes pull-your-hair-out) life of a SingleMom :)
You know I love your blog girlie, Its one of the highlights I look forward to checking into regularly :D
Jenniffer, big smooches to you for reaching out to me and also for your support. It truly means the world to me and validates why I do this crazy thang.
Thank you to all who read, whether it's every single post or whenever you can. I'm grateful to be a small part of your world and I want to lift you up and make you laugh whether you are a single parent, a single person or a married person living vicariously through me. You give me so much and I thank you so much!
The Single Mom
