So This Is Christmas: A Single Mum Special

So This Is Christmas: A Single Mum Special. Hey everyone, this is going to be a special Christmas post because it is Dedicated to all Single mum. Christmas time is a very special occasion where do matter where you are in the world, we all celebrate one way or the other. However, it can be a very emotional season for some families who have no support from anyone and anywhere.

So This Is Christmas: A Single Mum Special

A time to celebrate with family and friends, time to give back and reflect on how wonderful the year has been. It is also a very emotional time for single parents, as much as we love seeing how happy our kids are when opening their presents – there’s one thing we always have a bit tiny guilt about – not having a ‘perfect’ little family which includes the other parent.

Single moms, I say it over and over again – we are the strongest human beings on earth. We put a lot of pressure ourselves trying to create the ‘Perfect Christmas’, I want to remind you all that nothing is perfect. Also just because we are single parents does not mean we can not have a ‘perfect’ Christmas either. It just depends on what your definition of ‘The Perfect Christmas’ is.

The Perfect Christmas

The perfect Christmas depends on what you want it to be. Yes, it’s all about family but if you are a single mother and far away from your family or your family don’t get along with you, then how is it perfect? Well, answer to that is it’s up to you because at the end of the *day it doesn’t matter what your situation may be, it can still be perfect.

If you are feeling guilty for not having any or little presents under the Christmas Tree – don’t because you give your kids everything they need to be happy, every single day. It must be hard for those who don’t have money for a nice Christmas dinner.

To be honest, looking into my own life, if it wasn’t for my mum, who is hosting Dinner tomorrow – I’ll be very sad. As it’s the tradition that I grew up with and I have no other way to celebrate it. With that being said, in a recent post, Last Christmas – A Christmas Reflection, clearly shows that I have been in a situation where my family and I were not in good terms and I decided not to go over for dinner and just stayed at home with my daughter.

Christmas is not all about presents. It’s about families, no matter how big or small, coming together and celebrating nothing but true .happiness, love and peace. It’s up to you to decide how you are going to celebrate it. For one day only, I advise you all to let go, be the adult and just enjoy yourselves.

So This Is Christmas: A Single Mum Special

To the mum that has 2 presents under the tree- you’re a great mum. To the mum that has 30 presents under the tree- you’re a great mum. To the mum that has no presents under the tree- you’re a great mum. To the mum that has no tree- you’re a great mum. To the mum that had to ask for donations this year- you’re a great mum. To the mum that stood in line at the Salvation Army- you’re a great mom.

To the mum that has everything wrapped- you’re a great mum. To the mum that hasn’t shopped yet- you’re a great mum. To the mum that can’t do anything this year- you’re a great mum. To the grieving mother that is ready for the season to pass- you’re a great mum. To the newly single mum that cries at the thought of Christmas morning- you’re a great mum. To the mum that forgets to move the elf every night- you’re a great mom. To the mum barely holding it together- you’re a great mum.

This season does not define how great of a parent you are. Remember that.

From My Family to Yours, Merry Christmas

    It is hard to be different during the holidays. You always see this perfect family in the media. As a child of divorced parents- traversing the holidays between the two is hard. To make it harder, none of us live in the same state/country.

      Thank you Sonia. I am not a mum but I feel it dedicated to my mum, she’s a single mum and Christmas is also her birthday. So I feel it as a very special day to me too.
