Seven of Swords
Time to consult with others. You are a truthful person, but others do not always want to hear the truth. Honor and willingness to stay and face the music. You will not run from a situation just because it is uncomfortable. Someone needs to know that you are there for them. Someone has the wrong idea about you. You need to set things right.

... so, my thoughts on this is - "you will not run from a situation just because it is uncomfortable". that is generally very true about me. i haven't thought of any show-stopper reasons to not give T a chance...

I know I'm not as ready for this as I hoped I would feel...or I would be. But, now I feel like I would be doing her a disservice by not giving her a chance. Let's see how I feel tomorrow and Monday. That's when I need to decide.

Sitting here watching the marathon of NCIS tonight... got a lot of laundry done. Tomorrow looks like much of the same. Glad to have some down time.

Let your mind wander and ponder on this. I know you'll make the right decision for both you and T. It'll come to you, I believe.

I'm contemplating becoming a single mom by choice. I'm 39 (soon to be 40) and Mr. Right still has not entered my life. My main reservation is how it would affect my child not to have a father in their life. My father and grandfathers are deceased, my mom was an only child, so the only male influence would be my brother in law. Very curious - how did you make the decision to become a single mom? If you had to do it over, would you? What are the best/worst parts of being a single mom? Thanks for your help.

Becoming a mom is THE best thing i've ever done. Yes, you need to make sure there are men (a man) in your child's life that is a positive role model. But, that wasn't a make or break for me. I think that if you are wanting to parent, then you should go for it!! There is no time like the present, and if you wait too long, it'll never happen. You do not need a Mr. (right or wrong) to have a child. :)

It is important to have good friends, even if it is just a couple, as a strong support system. Staying on the lookout for other single moms and parents who are looking for friendships is great too.

I'm excited for you, for contemplating becoming a mom!! :) It's beyond wonderful.
