Karen at “Odd Moms” invited me to check out her blog the other day … “I know the ‘Weird Mom’ contest is over, but I wanted to pass this along,” she wrote.
I’m so glad she did. I was especially touched by this tribute to her mother. Neither Karen nor her mother have had an easy life. But they managed to impart to their children important lessons about self-reliance and courage — first and foremost, by their own example as courageous single moms.
Karen’s blog is a good reminder that not all EMs are adoptive or foster moms. Some of them are moms who are simply doing the best they can with what life hands them, one day at a time.
