To all the Single Moms

4585171523_b98215e545My first inclination was to write about how much Valentine's Day sucks. Then I remembered that I already did that last year - Dawn's Top Ten List of Why Valentine's Day Sucks (not the least of which is the fact that the Valentine's Day mascot is a manbaby who wears a diaper and shoots arrows, and would make any sane person call 9-1-1 if they saw him). This year, instead of creating another list about the evils of this holiday, I'm taking the opportunity to set aside my cynicism and celebrate Valentine's Day with some people I admire - single moms.


I want to give a little present to a hard-working single mama out there. Leave me a comment here and I'll enter you for a chance to win a set of my books: Because I Said So (and other tales from a less-than-perfect parent), You'll Lose the Baby Weight (and other lies about pregnancy and childbirth), and the books to which I contributed: Pearl Girls (encountering grit, experiencing grace), and Mother of Pearl (luminous legacies and iridescent faith).  I'll choose one random winner Friday, February 15.  Good luck!

Not a single parent, but I played one for a while while my husband was deployed. (Or I could just go out and buy your books.... Think I'll do that next time I'm out!)

I'd love to win! ;-) Thanks!

I've already read the books you've written, but would love to have some copies to pass on to friends!

Thanks for the reminder Dawn that single-mothers are never alone! It was a great read.

Awww...what a sweet post. Thanks for the kudos, and the opportunity to win:)

Happily working on year 14 of single parenthood. Moved from IN to TX with 5 kids ranging in age from 4-14 almost 15 years ago. My ex forgot we had kids as a requirement of the divorce. The kids haven't heard word one from him or seen him since.

I got the best end of the deal

Like you, I'm a single mom to a 6 pack - 4 boys and 2 girls. I'd love to have your books - and to share them. Building my business, one day at a time.

As another single (widowed) mom of 6, I'd love to read your books!

I am totally a single parent, much like yourself. Four children, incredible busy and I feel for you so much. My only consolation is having family nearby that can help. But, I do feel the pain of being 100% a single mom while working full time. It's not easy and I admire you greatly through your blog!
