This post about my Mother’s Day in 2017 is clearly long overdue. But you know how the saying goes … Better late than never. Here is how I really feel about being a single mother on Mother’s Day. *Sidenote: This post features the opinions of a woman who, at this point in life, only has five years of experience with raising one girl. Just in case you feel that makes a difference in what I’m going to write. This past Mother’s Day was my first one as an official single mother.

What God taught me in 2016 is that faith in Him brings light to the darkest of days. Here's how God's extraordinary love and grace carried me through 2016. - Kiara Watts, My City Adventures

Years ago I walked past a Jimmy John’s (of all places) and noticed a poster on the wall. “50 Things I Learned By the Time I Was 50”. I stood there long enough to read through the list twice. It was such a novel idea that it has stuck with me ever since. So, now, as I get ready for my 30th birthday I want to share 30 things I’ve learned. Who knows?
