Honoring our Gold Star Mothers today...
This note below was shared with me today, and I wanted to share it with everyone else in honor of military moms and families everywhere. I am a Blue Star Mom (our son served four years in the USMC, deployed twice, and is now home), but my grandmother was a Gold Star Mom. Her youngest son was KIA at Normandy on June 8, 1944. On that day, her Blue Star turned to Gold, and it changed her life and her family's lives forever.
In honor of all Gold Star mothers everywhere.
Gold Star Mothers Sunday -- September 26, 2010
With loving thoughts and heart felt prayers for our Gold Star Mothers, our country stops to honor and remember sacrifices made, hearts broken, lives given. The last Sunday in the month of September is set aside in our nation to pay tribute to the brave and loving mothers of our country's fallen military heroes.
May we pray together today for hope to fill each Gold Star Mother's heart, comfort to fill her days, and peace to fill her soul. May she rest in knowing that the pride she has for her hero shines out to others through her life.
Remembering our Gold Star Mothers on their day of honor,
With Prayers and Love,
Rev. Lin McGee
