Rib cook off

Published July 19, 2015 by lynn k scott

I am a proud Blue Star Mom.  I am fortunate enough to be part of a local Blue Star Mothers chapter.

For those who don’t know what a Blue Star Mother is,  it’s mothers who have children serving in the military.   You normally hear about Blue Stars when their children deploy.

Part of what we do, as a chapter, is attending various events, collect donations and inform the community we are here to support our activity duty and vets, as well as their families.

While sitting in our booth this weekend, at the rib cook off, I was quickly handed a trivet with a business card.  The gentleman said, “Semper Fi” as he returned back to his booth.

I was stunned.  We really don’t expect acknowledgment.   When we do, it is often from those we support.  I will never get used to it.

After recovering from my beautiful surprise gift, I walked over to the Marine vet’s booth and properly thanked him for the gift.  Two other Blue Star Moms who were also working that day, received trivets as well.

Such a small token made my day.  I am proud of what we do.  Whether we are shipping 100 care packages to deployed troops, helping get donations to mail those packages, collecting hygiene supplies, helping a local shop donate a car to a local Airman, we are moms making a difference.

Of course, we had somegood bbq after my shift. wpid-20150718_133031.jpg
