Why is this Military Spouse Thankful?

The Holidays we ARE Together: Sure, we have celebrated way too many holidays in separate time zones. But the times my husband is home are times I really treasure. We make an extra effort to spend time together, create family memories, and establish traditions… because we have to make each celebration count for the next year too.

On the Anniversary of September 11th

The effects of September 11 hit home a few weeks later, when my boyfriend went off to Boot Camp. I watched my boyfriend prepare for war. I watched our country declare war. I stood by and supported him as a girlfriend, then his wife, while he fought on the front lines of that war. Again. And again, and again. It is a war that we continue to fight today.
