IMG_0971The hardest day of the week for me is Sunday. Spoiler alert, this post is a downer. I keep trying to make Sunday better, but it is a hard day and I’m gonna be real about it. Sunday is the day when families go to church together and celebrate a family afternoon and a big dinner. Dad is home from work, mom is relaxing and organizing for the week ahead and kids are together. While I realize that not every family has a Norman Rockwell Sunday, it is especially hard for this single mom. First, it means getting all my kids up and ready in “Sunday Best” and to church ON TIME by myself. I struggle to get my kids to their sunday classes and then I sit in church by myself. I am surrounded by couples holding hands and sharing bibles. After church I quickly step out to get my kids while other women chat away and their husbands pick up the kids. After church we come home. To a quiet usually messy house showing the chaos of the morning. In Suberbia Sunday is family day and it is hard.

 

Forging ahead,
