When mom's heart breaks
It's not easy always being strong for your family.
Why must it always be a mother that has to be the strong one in the family?

I just had to take two broken-hearted little boys to school and my own heart is aching for them!

They were so proud when they were offered a part scholarship to an exclusive private school, they had been wanting to go there for so long but we could never afford the fees and then came this offer. We thought it was a gift from above, but after looking at all involved we came to the sad realization that we could still not afford these fees!

As I write this there are tears of sadness and frustration in my eyes - my boys had worked so hard, their marks are in the top of their class and still it was not good enough! I tried very hard to find employment but work is scarce and our town is small! I cannot give them what they deserve and I know that I must believe that there is a reason for all and that everything is for the best!

It just hurts so much to be a mother sometimes!
