What Single Moms and Widows Need to Hear

My grandmother was a tough lady. She could cook dinner, perm her hair, sew a dress, and fix a carburetor all at the same time. But, the strongest thing she ever did was raise two boys all on her own.

Effortless

We aren’t made to live life alone…but, if we took a poll, odds are, everyone would say they’ve felt overlooked, isolated, or misunderstood at some point in life.
