Spelling can be a tricky proposition. Take the "gh" from "tough", the "o" from "women", and the "ti" from "action", and "ghoti" suddenly spells "fish".
Poet Marshall Davis "Soulful" Jones has his own way of spelling a very common word:
Truth is...being a single parent, no matter what gender, is probably the hardest job on the planet. If you know one, pray for them and put action behind your prayer by helping them. If you are one, hang tough and press on. You are tending a garden that can become beautiful and productive one day.
