Through the power that is google analytics, I can see what people have searched that brought up my page. One that struck me as interesting was “I am not a single mom, I’m a widow.” Well the two aren’t mutually exclusive are they? I AM a widow and I AM a single mom. I think I see what they are getting at, though. As a widow, it is tough to fit in with other single moms, as their situations are typically pretty different. I have attempted to join some “single mom” groups online and it is not a good fit for me. Posts usually revolve around discussing issues with the ex, weekends without children, and the empowerment of “I don’t need a man, I choose to do this alone.” I can’t relate to any of that. I should mention that I don’t fit in with any of the widow groups too much either. There aren’t too many 28 year old widows out there…
