Memorial Day

As you may know I'm a military Mom. Of all the titles I have, I think that is the one that makes me the proudest. Don't get me wrong. Being a wife, daughter, mother, grandma and friend all make me proud. What can I say, though, about this other aspect of my life? The feelings I have as a military Mom are so special and precious to me. They are kept in a very special place in my heart. I am honored to be part of the military family community.

I grieve along with the families who have lost their loved ones to the war. I cheer when I see them come back home strong and alive and well. I ache when I see them come back broken. I know from experience that if you asked any of them they would say they serve because they feel it is their duty and they are proud of it.

Pray for our military. Pray for our leaders and the decisions they make. Pray for the families who have lost their loved ones in the war. When you see military personnel go up to them and thank them for the job they are doing for our country.

Beautiful post, my sweet friend. My sentiments are the same as yours and us military moms have to be strong for our children.

God Bless everyone who serves our Country and the families of those who give so unselfishly of themselves.
