Merry Christmas to Everyone!!!
I’m not crying the blues; however, being a single parent is tough; that’s a reality. All I want like most single parents is for my parenting skills to have the effects of a two parent home. I love my two sons with everything that I have. When I write papers in class, I always speak of how the ultimate gift of parenting is how your children turn out and how they choose to raise their children like how they were raised.
This year I was blessed to be able to give my sons some great gifts still I was going to talk like I always do with my youngest son about Christmas. As I have shared, my youngest has autism, so things have to be repeated a lot until he grasps it. I walked in the bedroom with my youngest, and he goes to Jesus the reason for the season. The tears just started to stream down my face even with his disability; he understands what Christmas is what an awesome gift that was for me to receive. I want to thank God every day I pray for the best for my sons; one of the things that I want them to have the most is for them to have a relationship with Christ. I have instilled into my children that without Christ, we are nothing so never leave Him out of anything. It’s not Happy Holidays, Xmas; it’s Merry Christmas always, Christ is to be kept in everything always. When we allow God to lead our paths, we can’t go wrong, and things can only go right.
The second gift that I received was a letter from my oldest son he wrote:
I love you mom
Merry Christmas mom your love is more powerful than a nuclear bomb. You’re better than the rest. You are a fighter and a great provider. You are so smart. You get A’s on your school work, and I am proud to call you my mom. I pray that you have lots of success because you deserve it. Merry Christmas mom I love you very much!
I want to thank Christ for all that He has done and what He continues to do. God is the reason why I made it this far in life and with raising my sons.
