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.
My best chance of dealing with this is to keep busy.
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
