I'm a single mom of 2. My beautiful 18 year old daughter just left to go to college. She is only a couple hours away but I am really struggling with her being gone and not seeing her every day. We are very close and we still talk alot but I feel like I lost my best friend also. She's an amazing young woman and I am extremely proud of her but I also feel lost without her. My 11 year old son has been spending the summer with his dad because with my work hours, I have had a hard time finding a sitter for him. I miss them both so much. I feel extremely alone and depressed and find myself crying all the time. I have been trying to stay busy and find a hobby but I am really struggling with the loneliness. We originally moved here 3 years ago because I was seeing someone that I thought would be a good person for myself and my children but unfortunately, it didn't work out. He has a ton of issues of his own that he needs to work through so I am still single. I feel my purpose is to be a great mom to my children. I had hoped that God would send me a good christian man to be a good role model for my children so I am still waiting for that to happen but now with my daughter moving out and my son not here right now, I keep wondering what my purpose is. I am asking for prayer for my loneliness and for God to give me the clarity in my life so hopefully once again, I can feel like I'm going in the right direction and actually have a purpose.

I am planning on asking out a girl this Wednesday for a casual date the following week or the week thereafter (I already have an event in mind). I am a bit nervous, because I am not a big dater. Pray that the Lord's Will would be done. Pray that the Lord would allow me peace of mind during the lead-up to and the actual "asking out" itself. Pray that the Lord would give me the "proper" words to say, and help me articulate clearly and effectively (I bumble a little when I get nervous). If I am so blessed as to go on the date, pray that I would credit and look to the Lord for not only thanks, but for further guidance regarding the planned date itself. Pray that if the girl declines, that the Lord would give me the strength and courage to trust in him, and be able to move on.
