Being a single mom of two amazing kids is like juggling a million balls in the air—school, homework, cooking, and everything else. It's a whirlwind! But amidst the chaos, I've found my secret sanctuary—those peaceful nights when my little ones are asleep. 


It's like the world stops. I can finally catch my breath. In those precious hours, I reconnect with myself, my thoughts, and my faith. It's my time to recharge and find some much-needed peace and quiet.

The Magic In The Quiet Hours

When my kids are asleep in bed and I've read their favorite bedtime stories and given goodnight kisses my apartment goes through a great change. It goes from a lively, noisy place with two energetic kids running around to a peaceful haven. The atmosphere is cool and cozy, and it's the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Reclaiming My Time

In these quiet moments, I reclaim my time. It's a period where I can indulge in my hobbies, those personal passions that often take a backseat during the day. Whether it's working on my book, doing a Lego puzzle, or simply enjoying a favorite movie, this time is solely for me. These activities not only provide a creative outlet. The activities help me unwind and recharge for the day ahead.

A Heart-to-Heart with God

One of the most profound aspects of my peaceful nights is the opportunity to have heart-to-heart conversations with God. In the stillness, I find it easier to quiet my mind and open my heart. It's a time for prayer, reflection, and spiritual connection. These moments strengthen my faith and provide me with the guidance and peace I need to navigate the challenges of single motherhood.

The Comfort of Simple Pleasures

The night has a way of making everything feel cozy and comforting. It's like, picture this: you're all snuggled up in a blanket, sipping on some hot tea, and lost in a book that's so good you can't put it down. These small moments of peace and quiet are like little treasures in the middle of a busy day. They remind you that it's okay to slow down, take a break, and just enjoy the simple things in life.

Working on My Book

When the night falls and the world around me goes silent, that's when goodness happens for me as a writer. With all the distractions of the day out of the way, I can finally dive into my book, letting my imagination run wild and my thoughts flow freely onto the page. This quiet time is like gold for my creative process, letting me make real progress on my projects.

The Importance of Self-Care

Chilling out at night is like taking care of myself. 

It's like telling myself, "Hey girl, you need some "me time" too." 

When I make time for myself, I'm more patient and attentive with my kids during the day. It's like a balancing act, you know? Gotta make sure I'm taking care of myself and my family.


Being a single mom can be crazy busy, and it's tough to find time for myself. But these quiet nights are like my little sanctuary where I can chill, think about stuff, and recharge. Whether I'm doing something I love, talking to God, or just reading a book with a cup of tea, these hours are super important for me.

They remind me that even though I'm always running around taking care of everyone else, I need to take some time for myself too. It's all about embracing the peace and finding joy in the simple things in life.
