Knowing, learning, laughing

Two things that have gotten me through singlemamahood are knowing I’m not alone in my situation (knowing, however, that no two situations are alike) and knowing how to laugh — at myself and/or the circumstances. I was trying to think of what to write for my latest Dinner for One column and decided to share a story from my first week of being officially on my own. Six years later, it still reminds me to keep laughing and to keep things in perspective — eventually, anyway. Living near a pharmacy doesn’t hurt either.

  1. Oh my! This story you shared brings to mind a very traumatic time in my life as a single mother. I might just have to write it up on my blog.
    I am new to your blog but think I will definitely come back soon.
