Last night I took dinner over to a friend of mine who just had a healthy baby girl. She has two boys also. It is a happy occasion marred by the fact that her divorce will be final in a few weeks. I don’t know the details, and don’t really want to know; it’s none of my business. I’m just so sad for her, and the kids. How awful to have a baby alone. It’s hard enough to raise kids with a husband. I know there are so many single mothers out there now, and they manage, but I wonder how much comfort my friend will get from the fact that she has a lot of company. It won’t make her workload any lighter, or make the kids miss their daddy any less.
