Perhaps this prayer by an anonymous Christian single parent says it all:“Lord, grant me Time Enough to do all the chores, join in the games, help with the lessons, and say the night prayers, and still have a few moments left over for me; Energy Enough to be bread-baker and breadwinner, knee patcher and peacemaker, ballplayer and bill juggler; Hands Enough to wipe away the tears, to reach out when I’m needed, to hug and to hold, to tickle and touch; Heart Enough to share and to care, to listen and understand, and to make a loving home for my family.”Phew!

Meet for the first time in a populated, public location – never in a private or remote location. Inform a friend or family member of your plans and when and where you're going.
If you own a mobile phone, make sure you have it with you . Do not do anything that would impair your judgment and cause you to make a decision you could regret. Just in case things don't work out, you need to be in control of your own ride – even if you take a taxi.
