I decided today was the perfect day to honour all the Mums of our Heroes and the Mums of their children.
I hope all the Mums reading this today were well and truly spoilt by their loved ones but please spare a thought for the Mums whose loved ones are far away. I know there are loads of you who read this post who have a son or a daughter deployed at the moment or who are posted far away and I want you to know that we are thinking of you also. That also includes all the Grandmothers who have grandsons and granddaughters.
Please also spare a thought for the wonderful Mums who are deployed, trusting others to care for their children, while they do their part to make sure that everyone's children in Australia can grow up safe and sound in this wonderful country.
And finally, and most heartbreakingly, please spare a thought for the mothers, grandmothers, wives and expended families of our Fallen Heroes. I hope it helps to know that you are not forgotten and neither is your sacrifice.
All the signs in this post come from Prim Essence.
You don't have to wear a uniform to be a Hero!
