Food for Thought
Goodness. I certainly wasn’t expecting that.
Domingo called the next day and asked me out. He’s a nice guy, but I am not ready to leave the kids with a sitter and go off on dates. Devlin is still out there somewhere doing who-knows-what. I need to be home. I offered to make a home-cooked meal, but Domingo wasn’t interested. Since he spends a lot of time making house calls, he wants to go out and have fun. It appears that we want different things at this time, so I turned him down as gently as I could.
I have to admit that I have been so busy with our daily routine that I haven’t really taken the time to look at the bigger picture. I am now…
I love my family, but am I doing the right thing by being a single mother? Am I doing them a disservice by not modeling a loving relationship and having a good male role model around? Dare I open my heart and trust another to treat my babies & me well? *sigh*
A new day brings a bit of insight. First things first. The situation with Devlin needs to be permanently resolved one way or another. I can’t, I won’t live my life looking over my shoulder wondering if… when that snake will strike. I also need the comfort and relief that having the adoptions go through will provide. Then, perhaps I can consider looking for Mr. Right.
Looking forward to what happens next! 😀
Thanks, LP! Your support means a lot to me 😀
I feel sad for Domingo. Hope he gets a good woman.
Time will tell, but I have a feeling he will 😉
A single mother does right by her kids when she makes them her top priority. Dating can bring unnecessary drama into their lives, and hers. Also, it’s not fair bringing someone into their lives if the relationship wont last. It’s pretty hard being a single mother and finding that right partner to bring into the family 😉 She should take her time!
