With Memorial Day approaching I would like to take a moment to properly thank some very unsung heroes, Military Moms. In my book you are every bit as strong, courageous, brave and determined as the Soldiers you have raised. It's not easy sending your babies off into the unknown, but you are there to support and cheer them on.
You are always there with care packages and words of comfort when it's needed. You welcome them home with loving arms and relief in your heart. Every phone call or Skype you receive from them leaves you with a feeling of warmth and gratitude. As Grandmas you are often called upon to raise your children's babies while they are away.
You might be raising children while your husbands are deployed. When your kids are afraid you must be there to comfort and calm them, even though inside you are just as scared. You have to be both mom and dad and you try so hard to keep things normal and happy. This is no easy task and you too deserve a medal of honor for your hard work.
Some of you might be wondering how you ended up with children who are so selfless and willing to sacrifice so much, just look in the mirror and there's your answer. So Thank You Moms for always being there. No body ever said being a mom was easy and Military Moms definitely have added responsibilities.
