Survivor, #1042


Yay!  I woke up so happy today.  My husband is coming home!!!  He has been gone for 8 whole days.  It is rare that he is gone this long, and the kids and I have missed him so much.  Our reunion will be sweet, but even though my thoughts are on seeing him, I can’t help but think about single parents, too.  Every time he goes away, I think about them with such high regard.  Managing my two energetic crazy kids alone for 8 days makes me feel like I climbed Mt. Everest and survived.  I can’t imagine having to do this 100% of the time.

In fact, I think I’ve even written about this topic before.  Single parents really all deserve awards for their bravery and strength, because man…they don’t have it easy.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids to pieces.  We’ve even had a lot of fun in my husband’s absence, but it will be awesome to have a second person to help with the responsibilities again.

So, once more, I am tipping my hat to single parents today, and my song of the day is for them.  “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child is a perfect anthem for the moment, so enjoy it and G-d bless!


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
