Mondays Course in Miracles

I am me and that is ENOUGH

When I first became a single mom, I spent many sleepless nights worrying about my children's futures.  I was paralyzed in fear with the same question swirling around my head, "How can I be both mom and dad?"

Then one night I was startled awake at 3 a.m. with the answer. "I cannot ever be mom and dad."
