‘Twas many nights before Christmas and all through my head
Several single mom thoughts were stirring, while I lay here in my bed;
The stockings were hung by the tree with care,
In hopes, “Mr. Genuine Guy” soon would be there;
The children were nestled all cozy in their beds,
While visions of Fitbits danced in their heads;
I’m the mamma in my pyjamas, I don’t wear a cap,
I just settled down for a short power nap,
When out on the patio a loud BANG was heard,
I jumped out of bed screaming a four-letter-word!
Away to the window I marched right over,
Flung open the curtains and saw a Range Rover!
The full moon in the sky and the snow on the ground,
Gave the impression that Christmas was somewhere around,
When what do my wondering, tired eyes should appear,
But a group of my friends, with nothing but cheers,
One of the ringleaders, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be that funny chick.
More rapid than hummingbirds, they all flocked around,
And we gave big gratitude hugs for the friendships we found;
Let’s be honest, life can be tough as a single parent,
When finding your path and dating if you dare it.
But support systems are the best when we feel at our worst,
Christmas helps our hearts fill with love, then let it happily burst;
We are all in this world together, you are never alone,
Love yourself and your kids right down to your bones;
Finding a mate will happen on its own,
There’s no need to settle, you’ve already flown ❤
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
All My Love and Gratitude ❤
**If you or someone you know is going through a separation or divorce during this Christmas season, please know I understand that pain all too well. The thing that got me through it all was writing down how I felt and then turning it into something positive which is how my book “Winning While Losing: The Upside of Heartbreak” was born. It’s about how I coped by finding light in the dark. Please know you are not alone and consider reading my book by heading over to any online bookstore worldwide or the FriesenPress online bookstore.
Happy holidays and dare to live courageously…
