How can you bless a single mom today?

Happy Mother's Day! Today the single moms are heavy on my heart. This is one area where Kim and I definitely cannot relate and won't even pretend that we know what you go through as single mothers. We can only imagine the challenges you face day to day, sometimes hour to hour, paycheck to paycheck.

Thank you. I know your kids don't say it enough - but thank you. Thanks for buying the groceries and cooking them up, the tennis shoes and sometimes even the latest fashion, and for keeping the bills paid. Thanks for going over the homework and keeping track of the kids. Thanks for making all the hard decisions, and for sticking to your guns when it would be so much easier to give in. I know that you give up your personal desires so that your children can have "things." But things are not all that you give. You give of yourself - your time, your talents, and most of all your hearts.

I read this quote today on Facebook and feel compelled to pass it along:

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

This - we can relate to. So here's a challenge to all of our readers today: How can you bless a single mom today? Say a prayer, buy a rose, wash a car, steal away a small child for a few hours, take a boy fishing, take a girl shopping. Give her a coupon for 2 hours of free babysitting. The Church has been commissioned to take care of widows and orphans, and I believe that single moms can be included in this responsibility.
