This Wednesday, I will be hosting a dinner for Gold Star Moms. A Gold Star Mom is a mother whose child was killed in action during their service to the military or who lost their battle to PTSD.
Here’s where you come in. I want to bless these ladies’ socks off when they open a personalized package with letters from each of you telling them how grateful you are for the freedom their children provided for you and your family. I want you to encourage them that their sacrifice has not been forgotten and that you will honor their loss by raising up children who will make good with their lives and the opportunities that freedom in this incredible nation provides them with.
So send me those letters in the form below. Include a family photo. We’ll get them into their hands. You can write something as simple as, “Thank you.” You can be as verbose as you want. You can be simple or sappy, but you should take the time to write. Then take the extra 15 seconds and share this post on your Facebook and twitter You’ll feel the hand of God come and pat you on the back, you’ll make those soldiers in heaven smile, and you’ll get to be a VIP in my book for having taken the time.
And when you tuck in your kiddos tonight, whisper a prayer for the more than 3,480 Gold Star Mothers since 2000. It’s the VIP no one ever wants to be…but it is the most exclusive and honor-deserving group of women I know.
