  1. Thank you for this piece. It helps me to know that I’m not alone as a single parent, wishing for some of the bright and shiny that is posted on other people’s facebook walls. I think your tips are fabulous, especially since I am guilty of seeing the holidays through the lens of gifts, decorated trees, and happy, loving families. Thank you!

  2. Great post, yes the main thing to do when we get discouraged and overwhelmed is to go to God’s Word.

    One thing I did a couple of months ago is install a little program called “Popup Wisdom” and created a text file with encouraging verses. One pops up every 30 minutes on my computer. This is the verse that just popped up while I was reading your post.

    Psalm 90:14-17

    Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love,
    so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.
    15 Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery!
    Replace the evil years with good.
    16 Let us, your servants, see you work again;
    let our children see your glory.
    17 And may the Lord our God show us his approval
    and make our efforts successful.
    Yes, make our efforts successful!

    I’m praying that Psalm for you Kim.

  3. Definitely struggling this holiday season financially for my two littles. Than you for the kind words. Please keep me in all your prayers.
