How can YOU bless single moms this Mother’s Day?
> Ask what she needs. Maybe she needs a babysitter, maybe she needs a ride, or maybe you’d bless her socks off with your gift of a flower bouquet, heartfelt note, and gift card to a nearby grocery or restaurant that she can enjoy with her kids.
> Invite her and her kids to join your family for church and an afternoon BBQ. Offer to pick them up and drive them home, if it would make it easier to get to you.
> Become her friend, and keep on blessing her! Be someone she can truly count on for love, encouragement, and even wisdom (if she asks for your advice).
