Excerpts from RAISING CHARLIE

Whatever the set of circumstances which causes you to be suddenly alone raising children, it is a soap opera. It is reality right there in your own home, in your own skin, in your own broken heart. A reality that will last what seems forever. A reality that you will want to run from at times. A reality that seems to be powerful enough to break you. There’s an aloneness in being a single parent that is not matched by any other manner of being alone. The fact is that you are never alone all the while being totally alone. You always have God. If only He would sit across from you, have a cup of coffee, and tell you how to handle the problem of the morning. Then lunch with Him to prepare you for the problems of the afternoon. That’s not going to happen. (excerpts from the book)
