Parenting is a struggle, regardless of the household dynamic. Life has it's way of throwing things into the mix that makes you work harder sometimes, financial issues, health problems, or just not enough time in the day. But, we make it through. I made it through just like many others.
As life continues, I hope and pray that my children will share the things that they have learned with others, that they become a part of someone else's village to extend love and support just as they have received. My time of full time parenting is almost over, but you know what.....I've enjoyed this journey and look forward to the vacation ahead.
