Happy Mothers Day To Those In Uniform

Happy Mother's Day To Women In Uniform, Past Or Present

You served our Country proud and true
Even if it took you far from home and family
You stood tall, you did your best

You may have missed birthdays and all the holidays
School plays, band recitals your seat was there emptily
You may have wondered why am I here
Will they know me when I return

Then you came home, and without a doubt
You knew them by their happy, tearful shout
Welcome home Mom, we love you so
We missed you and were sad when you had to go

So even though, the times away were hard and trying
You knew you were doing your job, it had to be done
Now safe at home we offer our thanks
For a job well done

Now may God Bless you each and everyone
Your sacrifices, your honor to our flag
Will not be forgotten, we know your were there

So today we hope you and your family
Can celebrate together and find some joy
Try to forget those days you missed
Remember your brothers and sisters in arms

To all who are now serving our country
We owe you a debt that can not be repaid
You are there, where we once were
For you and all our troops we have prayed

Know that you are loved, honored, and respected
For all you have done and are doing daily
We know it hurts to be away, to miss another special day
You are in our hearts and minds

Thank you is not enough, mere words..
But from the bottom of our hearts we say

Happy Mothers Day
