Happy Mother's Day

I want to dedicate my mother's day wishes to some incredibly cool single moms I know out here in blogland.

To SingleWorkingMommy, who I know has had a very tough week. I recognize so much of myself in you: the struggle to do everything so well, and the frustration when things beyond your control get in the way. I love sharing your triumphs, and I know that there are many more triumphs in your future because you'll never stop trying. I also know that you're one to find the silver linings in the clouds, and that the best thing about Mother's Day for you will be spending it with Son. Enjoy it!

To A Bright Future, one of the first fellow single mom bloggers I found! And honestly, I was afraid you'd be way too upbeat and...happy for my taste! But instead, I've found a loyal, steadfast, supportive friend. I truly admire (and somewhat envy) your endless optimism. I hope that some of it rubs off on me, and that you have a really nice Mother's Day.

Nat at From Here to There: first, I'm so glad you're back from your hiatus! I love that I never know what to expect from you. I want to be you when I grow up. Happy Mother's Day.

Kori, I've already written a tribute to you, of course, but how on earth could I not give you a special greeting here as well? You know I'll be thinking of you, and we'll share it all on Monday (someone get this woman a home computer please!). I know you don't hear this enough: you're doing a fantastic job, hon, on all fronts.

Reading all the single moms out there (sorry, I'm not well-versed enough to do everyone justice) has added something to my life I didn't really have before: a community. Thank you for that - it makes every day so much better.

I hope all the moms have a great day; you all rock!

Happy, happy Mama's Day! You pretty much rock to, my new friend ;-)

ps: that should be "rock too." can't hit the right keys this early in the am.

HEEEEEEEY! I should count as a single mom, too, damnit - at least until next February!

Oh, April...I have you fooled! Because behind this perky exterior lies a very pessimistic and doubting single mom. :-)

A very Happy Mother's Day to you! I am so glad to have found you out in blogland and only wished we didn't live on opposite sides of the country. Because I'm pretty sure the two of us + a bottle of wine = GOOD TIMES!!!

You inspire and amaze me and always offer the greatest advice. Thank you!!!!!

April, you all ROCK! You have a hard road but you do it with such aplomb and love. You are a hero(ine).

Oh great, now I'm crying.

Thanks for the Mom's Day wishes--and right back at ya, girlie.

Your help and guidance during this period of my life is so, so... I can't even put it into words.

I thank you from deep, deep down.

And psssttt--Liz was one of the first single-mom bloggers I found, too. And I wondered the same thing.

*whine* Why can't we all live in the same town? /*whine*
