Military Spouse Appreciation

They say that the hardest thing in the military is to be the military spouse...even my husband says it. Some days I believe it, some days I dont. (depends on what story Bubble just finished telling me..:D) Most days I believe it. We are EVERYTHING while they are gone - from the Mom, to the Dad, from the plumber, to the exterminator. Everything that has to be done, has to be done by us...with little to no complaints. Personally, I dont mind it - sometimes it gets stressful (I hate killing spiders or disposing of the mice that we trap) but I do it bc I love my husband and what he has decided to do for our country and all that mushy stuff. I'm so proud of him, and what he does that it makes it worth it...and I know that on the other end of the deployment, or underway, or even work day...I will see his face and that is enough to keep me going.

So to all you other MilSpouses that read this (and I know I have a few) thank you for being you...and thank you for being the "other" half of your sailor, solider, airman, marine, or coastie. 

And since its Military Appreciation MONTH, I also appreciate the families of our service members too!
