Absolutely Rachel, and darn proud of it too! Mine is off to college, but From one single mom to another, you are amazing!
Aw, thanks, Tanya! wow! looking at your profile pic I thought no way could you have one off to college -- you look so young like you are fresh out of college yourself!
BTW...all of these things you SHOULD be comfortable doing with someone else in your life. After all, he/she is supposed to accept your for all God has created you to be, flaws and all! That's right, milk chugging, chocolate hoarding, adventuresome me (with a serious addiction to frozen yogurt)
Here's mine: my single status has allowed me to help my sister & kiddos in ways I couldn't have if married. And I've got a bag of chocolate peppermit candies in my fridge I don't have to share.
What are you grateful for?
Grateful for extra time to deepen my relationship with Christ , prayer , extra reading of scripture , volunteering , making many new friends and the peace and serenity that one is exposed to when one lives alone , allowing for the presence of Christ to be more vibrantly felt!!!
I am grateful I don't have to cook for anybody everyday, I can call my family and visit them whenever I feel like it and do the same thing with my friends, I can go anywhere at the time I want to and come back at the time I want to.
I am also grateful I can go to adoration, bible study, retreats, volunteer my time, and do anything else I feel is productive with my time and money.
