Soon as I saw it, I just knew I had to post it here. I’ve started my peas, corn , onion, Chinese broccoli and basil already. I haven’t decided what else I’m going to grow yet. Next week, I’m cleaning up the containers to start planting outdoors. What are you growing?
We all have our struggles but I really believe the truly blessed are those hard working single parents doing the job of two when it really takes the job of twenty to raise one child.
Here’s my story about my struggle with my son and then more about this special day. If you love this video and love this post, please like and share this post.
NATIONAL SINGLE PARENT DAY
March 21st is the day set aside to observe National Single Parent Day. This day was created to honor and recognize the hard work, devotion, and sacrifices of single parenting. Raising children can be challenging.
HOW TO OBSERVE
We all know of a family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker or someone who is a single parent. Support and appreciate them. Make this day a special one for the single parents that you know. Use #NationalSingleParentDay to post on social media.
An article was written by Janice Moglen in 1984, with the hope that Single Parent Day may one day gain the recognition many associated with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. She collaborated with the organization, Parents Without Partners, and began to petition to have states declare recognition of Single Parent Day. It is the belief that the day, March 21, was chosen to coincide with the inception of Parents Without Partners, which began on March 21, 1957. Proclamation 5166 was presented to, and signed, by President Ronald Reagan declaring March 21st, 1984 as National Single Parent Day.
Proclamation 5166 — National Single Parent Day, 1984
March 21, 1984
By the President of the United States of America
Before they are eighteen, about half of our Nation’s children will have lived part of their lives with a single parent who strives to fill the role of both mother and father.
Many single parents in America are making valiant efforts on behalf of their children under trying circumstances. Whether it is a deserted spouse forced to work and care for children simultaneously, or a spouse who is not receiving child support that has been awarded by a court, or an unwed mother who has bravely foregone the all-too-available option of abortion, or a widow or widower, single parents deserve our recognition and appreciation for their demonstrated dedication to their young.
At the same time, we should also recognize the vital and ongoing role a large percentage of non-custodial parents play in the nurturing process of their offspring. Their sacrifices, devotion and concern reflect the bonds of caring for those they have brought into this world.
Single parents can and do provide children with the financial, physical, emotional and social support they need to take their places as productive and mature citizens. With the active interest and support of friends, relatives and local communities, they can do even more to raise their children in the best possible environment.
The Congress, by H.J. Res. 200, has designated March 21, 1984, as “National Single Parent Day” and has requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of that day.
Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 21, 1984, as National Single Parent Day. I call on the people of the United States to recognize the contributions single parents are making, sometimes under great hardships, to the lives of their children, and I ask that they volunteer their help, privately or through community organizations, to single parents who seek it to meet their aspirations for their children.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-first day of March, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and eighth.

#Lawnguru is like Uber for your Lawn… Use my code “sylviarox5” for $5 discount #MotownMom (ad) www.lawnguru.co For more details, view here
Being a single mom in the city, it’s really hard to have a dependable person to cut your lawn, when you want it cut.
Now that my son is not around as much, it’s even more difficult and I can’t trust everyone to come out and do a good job.
I downloaded the Lawnguru app from my Google Play services (because Androids rule) and then I added my property and a credit card. It was really simple. Since my lawn grows when it wants to, I wasn’t locked into a contract. I could step up a one time use when I wanted and then I requested service.
It really feels like Uber for lawn care because depending on the weather and my bank account, I can’t always cut the lawn.
Having this service assures me I can get the lawn cut when I need it cut and keeping my property looking good.
P.S. They also do snow removal also
I highly recommend this service and please use my code “sylviarox5” for $5’s off your next service.
For first time users, you can get $15 off your first request “OwkUnuxZIE”

8,048 Detroit youth were employed through GDYT during the 2021 program, the seventh straight year of exceeding the program’s target of 8,000. To maintain social distancing protocols, GDYT made more than 6,000 of the 2021 summer opportunities virtual and the program will provide similar accommodations in 2022.
