The Wish of Single Moms Everywhere

All the single mothers I know desire the very best for their children. Moms want to encourage the gifts they see in their children. When we look at our world with our 24/7 news coverage we see sorry, need, and destruction on every front. Mothers know that it will be the children whose gifts are honored, acknowledged, and developed that will change the world.

Taken from Writing to Change the World by Mary Pipher

Margaret Mead defined an ideal culture as one that makes a place for every human gift. As our world approaches the precipice of destruction, it will survive only if we construct a new culture that is, to quote F. Scott Fitzgerald, “Something commensurate with our capacity for wonder.” With our healing stories, we will build that good, strong place where every being is valued and every gift can shine forth.

Encourage the children. Give them the chance to ‘wonder.’
