Mother's Day is not chocolate and roses for all mothers. For our military sons, daughters and mothers, the miles of separation are great indeed. The sons and daughters have mothers back home celebrating without their presence. Mothers have children left behind that will be celebrating with family and friends. Time away from home can be hard emotionally and psychologically and especially so on Mother's Day.
In celebration of Mother's Day, let us remember all sons, daughters and mothers near and far.
For moms serving the red, white and blue
This vase of roses is especially for you
And for mothers of soldier sons and daughters
Blessings to you across vast ocean waters
