Gold Star Mothers.

This plaque and Christmas ornament honor the mothers who have lost a son or daughter while serving our country in the military.

In 1928 a small group of mothers met in Washing DC to establish the organization called the Gold Star Mothers Inc. The organization was named after the gold star that families hung in their window in honor of the deceased veteran.

The sacrifice of these mothers and the sorrow in their heart is something only they can truly know. I received an email from a gold star mother asking me to put together a pattern she could cut for herself and to give to other gold star mothers. She had lost her son in Afghanistan and she mentioned how difficult this time of year is for her and her family. She misses her son. There are so many mothers who are missing their son and daughter right now. If I could make one wish for Christmas this year it would be that there was never another mother who became a Gold Star mother.

God bless all the Gold Star mothers and their families.
