Ok so I was online reading the news about a little girl who was beaten to death by her mother's boyfriend with a video game controller... people were posting comments about how useless this mother is because she heard her daughter screaming and crying and did NOTHING to check on her or stop the beating... Mind you the little girl was 2 years old... So anyways, I decided to post a comment about how both the mother and boyfriend are to blame for this little girls death when I started reading a post someone else had put on there about their values... this poster said that the liberals are to blame for promoting single parenting and having children out of wedlock... it sent fire through my veins... i ended up posting a comment back to this other person stating just how rude, impolite, and stupid they were... this poster claims to have christian values and such... yet i'm a christian and my church family does NOT make comments about or look down on single parents... there are many reasons why we are single parents... a spouse could have passed away or is in prison, a soldier in the war; many many reasons... i am a single mom because i got pregnant and no the father and i weren't married and have never married... hell we aren't even together and he's not in the picture with his son... i guess i'm just so sick and tired of hearing people bash single parents... the majority of the time it was not what we chose to do... it just happens... single parents have to act as both mother and father to their child/children, we have to handle every single thing from doctors appointments, homework, getting the kids to school each day to cooking dinner and cleaning the house.... we have to be stronger than others because we are doing it all on our own... i have to say that i honestly did not expect or plan to get pregnant... i was on the pill and took it everyday at the exact same time like i would die if i didn't... i was one of the 1 in 3 women who still get pregnant on the pill... it happens every single day... it doesn't make me a bad person or a horrible parent just because... it does not mean that my son will grow up to be a murderer, rapist, child molestor, or robber... it just means that he's growing up with one parent in the house.... people who judge single parents must have a really messed up life and just choose to ignore their problems and lash out at others i guess...

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????

A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
