I take my hat off to the women who are running their households so smooth and easy. Whether by choice or by circumstances being a mom & a dad at the same time, a wife, employee and head of your home takes tons of strength and energy. Your duties don’t end at a certain time but you are working all around the clock.
Whether it is by choice or by circumstances:
1. You are a single mom (due to different reasons i.e.
2. You are a wife of a traveler (husband or partner is always traveling on business)
You are the stronghold of your family – you are truly divine woman & powerful woman (ps: not taking away anything from the women who are blessed to have full time husband’s) but as we may know some husband’s are around and are always unavailable when they are needed. So every woman join me in raising the flag in Solidarity #WomanPower #Mbokodo #Womandla
Running a household as a working mom alone
1. It’s starts with yourself care
2. Caring and loving your child(ren)
* make time for them & spend time with them
* extra mural activities
* school projects & researching
* prepare & provide dinner
* clothing them (it’s like they wear their clothes for 2 minutes and suddenly they are small and they’ve out grown them)
3. Taking care of your household running – entails tons of things and responsibilities
* chores/ errands
* fixing and turning
* changing bulbs etc
4. Overstretching yourself
* looking after your children as if you never have or had another person to help you out except for God.
You are way stronger than you think and at times you wish you could go away and have your own moment and forget about everything else but yourself. Reality at times doesn’t allow you and you end up being over loaded and feeling tired and even for some women they feel recentment and would blame it on the fathers of the children. Do not take out your anger on the innocent people who were not even a part of it in the first place.
Love life and care for yourself. Nourish your soul & spirit read scriptures and invest in your well being by fellowshiping with others. This is the only way you could overcome any challenge or situation that you are going through. Never give up you are doing great and well done. You may not be told this – all the time but you are a strong woman and you are doing a great job. At times you may feel like the world has turned its back on you & that nothing seems to go well in your life.
One thing after the other keeps happening to you and in your life and you just don’t know how to explain it or work it out. Trust God he is there and He is at work fixing your situation. You may be facing the storm now but Joy Comes In the Morning . Trust God have full faith in Him and He shall see you through.
At times you wish you could just have a break or an escape from all the rest. You wish you could just rise above the waters and gasp for air. You convince yourself that you will be fine there after. But this life that we live in is so complicated and confusing. I think that’s a reason God made it that way so that we can only depend on Him and not in our own powers and abilities and understanding.
Because if we all knew when we will experience problems in our lives we would make plans and also try to make plans if we knew what types of problems we would experience at what stage in our lives and how..? We could try and handle them on our own and not trust God. He knows why, when, how and how long we are faced with those issues & he wants us to give him all the glory.
Divine woman you are great.
You are excellent & you doing great.
Never doubt yourself
Keep your head up high and soldier on.
