"The Courage to be A Single Mother" by Sheila Ellison is very positive
Here's a description:
Putting the Pieces Back Together
Step One: I Do Love Myself
Step Two: I Know What I Want
Step Three: My Family Is Still Whole
Step Four: I Can Choose Who I Am
Four simple steps. A world of truth.
At last, a source of compassion and support for divorced mothers facing the realities of raising children when their lives are at their most vulnerable and their self-images at their most fragile. Filled with more than a book on coping -- it is a source of understanding, encouragement, and strength that will help single women to nurture their children, resurrect their spirits, and create the life they want.
I ordered mine from Amazon. Btw, I totally hear you on the laundry thing. Hang in there!
