I am the person I most wanted not to be. As a child if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I said a mommy. As soon as I became one I knew that to lose a child would be the worst possible thing that could ever happen to a mother. I prayed it would never happen to me. But it did. I am a Gold Star Mother. Our youngest son was killed in the war.
There are times when I feel that I am the saddest person in the world. Yet my friends still love me. I know too many other bereaved parents. I try to be there for those who have just started the journey, though I know I can't take the pain away. There are too many of us. For those who don't know how we feel, we hope they never find out.
Life verse: Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. II Timothy 2:15 KJV
