Day 3 - I'm Thankful for my Son!

If someone would have told me that I would be a single mom at the age of 20, I would have told them that they were joking. But guess what, I was a mother at that age. Scared. Upset with myself. Disappointed. Confused. Depressed. So many things going through my head to end my life. I was not prepared to be a mom. I had just left one college and transferred to another one. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do with my life. I didn't have a plan. "But God" did.

Yes, I had a child out of wedlock and I wasn't ready. At first, I did regret having a child but it turned out to be a blessing. Once I realize that he was not going anywhere, I immediately changed my life. I started living for my son because not only did I have someone looking up to me, but someone depending on me. My goal was and still is to be the best parent I can be to my son.

We have a great relationship and I am truly thankful for my son. We have taught each other so much in life and I wouldn't change any of it. We have seen each other grow for the better. He is now a young man that I am proud of and love dearly. It hasn't always been easy, but our journey is like non-other.

I thank God for my 6' 2" son (lol), KenDarius Jamall Hicks!
