Whatever your circumstances or the reasons for them, how wonderful you are. Day to day you face the struggles of life, doing the work that was always meant for two but doing it largely alone. You have to be father as well as mother. You run your household, watch over your kids, sometimes struggle to make ends meet, and miraculously you even find the time to be with friends, having fun, doing other things. You nurture your children. You cry and pray with them and for them. You want the very best for them but fret every night that your best may never be good enough.
This is not exactly what you hoped or planned, prayed for or expected, when you started out years ago. Your journey through life has had bumps, detours, twists, and turns, mostly as the result of life in a fallen world that is meant to be a place of proving and testing.
