This photo evokes so many feelings for me. I can remember being a single parent with my oldest daughter and walking to the grocery store because my car had broken down. I walked a mile to the grocery store, carrying my 18 month old toddler on my hip and three or four bags in my other hand. It's amazing what moms and dads go through for daily survival. And now when I look at my daughter, who is now a college sophomore, I get overwhelmed with joy and elation. She probably has no inclination to the trials and tribulation I faced as a young, newly divorced single mother, but I think that's what good mothers do, we shield them from the harshness of our everyday struggles and we give them the best we have to offer. I also look at myself and think girl....we have come a mighty long way. :)
So what do you get from this week's photo writing prompt?
Don't forget to add your Wordless Wednesday post to the linky below.
I am a book addict and blogaholic. I am also a mom of five beautiful, intelligent, yet sometimes annoying kids, but mannerable and well behave to all others. I'm currently in a mood of missing my two college kids, while waiting on the other three to walk in their footsteps so their dad and I can conquer the world without a child in tow. My greatest accomplishment is maintaining my sanity and doing it while having my husband think I did it effortlessly.
