Single Catholic Mom ... Kirsten
Single Mother Who Needs Your Prayers And Support

A place to offer support for a woman who is feeling overwhelmed and alone.

I sometimes feel that I am drowning in my own lonliness.

I rarely cry and yet in the past few weeks I've wanted to do nothing but cry. I am overwhlemed by finances, responsibilities, and being there 100% for everyone who demands my time. I often feel like I've given so much of myself that there is nothing left for me or that my own needs don't count. Were I married, perhaps I would have someone to help me shoulder all of life's demands, but I am not. So, I suck it up and bury it all deep inside. The problem is that it's all beginning to overflow ... I am just so sad and so alone and so scared and so overwhelmed. And no one can hear me.

And now I am going to lose my house. The irony of my life, for the price of a basic family vacation, I am going to lose my home. I am flooded with the shame that that failure brings. I am so afraid of looking my son in the eye. I am drowning in plain sight.

Please pray for me. Please pray that God will hear my small voice and help me to cope.

Dear K,
Your story is so familiar. I'm married to a man who loves his wife and son, but not enough to live in the same state. He basically has his cake and eats it every weekend when he comes home from work. He works in PA, M-F and comes down to Fla. on weekends. He's cold and uncaring, and leaves me with raising his son, caring for his home, earning a living, and all the "manys" that come along with being alone. I sometimes wish I was not such a devote Catholic...then I would not have the guilt of filing for divorce and moving on. I'm strong, healthy and smart. Yes, I'm more lonely than I ever thought imaginalbe, but...I have God....ok, maybe a horrible husband,but at least I have GOD! Our sons need us. They need us to be strong, wise and independent. What kind of men will we produce if we break down and feel sorry for ourselves. We need to know the Lord will provide. How or when...I wish I knew....but..he will....Kirsten...he just will !

My prayers are for you Kirsten. I don't know you but I pray for you now. I pray for your help from the Lord and God. I pray for him to send a special angel to wipe away your tears and put a hand on your shoulder to calm you. I hope that angels surround you and comfort you and guide you towards new opportunities and ways to save your house! I CARE ABOUT YOU! AND SO DOES GOD (MORE THAN ANYONE CAN FATHOM). I wish for a special miracle for you.
Blessings of comfort to you.
You are loved.
