I have been a widow for over 10 years now,have been raising my 2 boys,for the most part on my own have had a couple of boyfriends,but nothing to speak of as an influence on my children) My boys are now in their teen years, and at times I find this quite overwhelming.I basically have sacrificed everything to give them the best possible foundation for a strong,happy and heathly
adult life. But, sometimes I have to wonder...how does one remain strong? When a child grows up without a parent can one parent really provide?
I am going through some pretty hard times lately,(I think mostly in my own mind,feelings of inadequacy,lack of balance etc,)I love my boys with all my heart, and would not blink an eye to give my life for them. but how, I do ask how does one really know if the love you provide, and the support you give is truly enough to guide them into a decent future for themselves.
