Recently I met a father who’s wife died before here time; he now is a full time dad to three beautiful children and is a great care giver. When I speak with him I can hear what a challenge being a single dad is although he hasn’t had a lot of time to relise the responsibility he has taken on, but he’s doing a great job. I praise any parent or grandparents that have had to do the same. It’s amazing how capable we are when their is a child or children involved. I look forward to my new friendship with whom I will call Mr Mum and I look forward to the friendship that has started, he has told me that I have been a great motivation for him and after one week I am also feeling more motivated at what can be achieved through my new friendship with Mr mum and a positive outlook. I would love to hold a fundraiser so the kids can have an education fund. It’s fantastic what people do, for there communities and I know this would benefit the children.
