Why are Single Mothers Great
I became a single mother at the age of 16. Yes, I know much too young but this was the path I chose. By the age of 21, I had three children. I worked, went to school, and raised my children ALONE. It was hard. I remember right after having my third child crying on my front lawn so overwhelmed and stressed out. I felt like walking away. I knew I wouldn't but the feeling was there.

My mother would say my friends always comment how proud they are of you. I was just doing what I knew I had to for myself and my children. There was no other way. No one was helping me financially. I had to work to support us and I felt like going to school was a must. 

Single mothers are great because we keep going. We can be tired, stressed, sick, or overwhelmed and we keep going. Our children don't know we are struggling. Why, because we keep going and never show them. This is why single mothers are awesome to me.
