Great Book

I've got a new favorite author...I bought the book My Single Mom Life, By Angela Thomas, for my sister and I ended up reading it. I've read the whole thing and highlighted all over the book and I haven't even given it to her yet. I just have to say that it's an awesome book!! So if you know a single mom or a mom who recently became separated - BUY HER THIS BOOK! It's an easy read, full of encouragement and sound advice. Angela has written a couple of other books that I'm going to have to read. I'll let you know if I end up loving any of her other books. I just know that this one is great.

Amy's road to "single motherhood" has brought to my attention a glaring issue that I've found the desire to correct in my own life. I don't know about you, but I have found that I tend to segregate myself. Not on purpose of course, but most of my friends are other married moms and most of them are stay-at-home moms. Amy is the only single parent that I'm friends with. How sad is that! Here are these women that need encouragement and support more than I could ever imagine and I don't even know any of them. So if you're reading this and some dear mom pops into your mind, do something about it! Buy her this book or write her a note of encouragement. Even if you don't really know her, I can guarantee that she probably needs a little pick-me-up!

How true - I haven't heard of this author, but will keep it flagged in my mind. There are lots of women who end up in the single parenthood situation and, like Amy, it was not in their plan either. Thanks for the great recommendation - everyone needs some encouragement!
