Flash Friday 55: A Single Mom

Susan leaves her infant to a nanny,
After several tries,
She has her car started and is ready to work.
“I’ve got to make it”.
She murmurs.
Her husband has left her for a cuter girl,
A single mom,
No more interests in falling in love again,
She prays that her life contains less pain.



  1. Hello.
    Shame on Susan's husband!
    Susan is hurting now, but if someone new comes along who wraps her heart up in gold, she will be receptive to love. She just needs time to heal.
    Painfully vivid.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes for the New Year!

    Tears Of Love

  4. Taylor Boomer...
    For some reason, Lost loves are running amuck today.
    Your 55 was Most excellent!
    Thank you so much for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  5. Wow... poor Susan... but she'll find love again, won't she?

  6. Very sad for both mommy and baby. Baby now has to have a nanny instead of mommy holding and rocking the little one and now mommy has to leave her baby in the care of someone else. May feel helplessness and hopelessness, but joy comes in the morning.
    This was powerful. Thanks for sharing. Blessings.

  7. What a sad but accurate account of so many families today. Glad someone is writing about it. Happy Rally!
