Saddens me

My thought for the day....

You know what saddens me?

When a so-called friend says they don't want to be your friend after you had to take a stand for yourself in a bad situation.

When women put other women down for their choices of motherhood or non-motherhood.

When someone allows the harassment or oppression of another.

When a Working Mother or a SAHM puts the other down for their choices.

I'm sure there is a lot more to say here, but these are the ones that come to mind. It is my opinion that we should build each other up in love. We all have our unique gifts and talents and we should encourage our fellow human beings to pursue theirs as well. And we as women should help each other when people are mean to us and to our fellow mothers/sisters/daughters/friends.

I agree! We should support each other's decisions, not judge them for them.

Just happened by your blog, and I believe, women should support each other! There is nothing wrong with single mothers.

Single moms do a great job as mothers so they should be respected for that but, being the daughter of a single mother by choice myself who struggled for a long time because I didn't have a father I couldn't ever support a woman's decision to be a single mother. No matter how hard the mother works to overcome that, the pain is always there and I don't think is fair for a kid to be put over what I've been through.
