    Here's a little prayer

    for all you ladies. I found it to give me a little peace of mind. Give me the greatness of heart to see, the difference between duty and his love for me. Give me the understanding so that I may know, when duty calls, he must go. Give me a task to do each day, to fill the time...

    "sexually Deprived For Your Freedom"

    I haven't written on this blog since the first time my boyfriend joined the guard. That was a little more than two years ago and it astounds me to think back to the first time he left. Since his return, life has gone on as planned. That is, until two weeks ago when my boyfriend...

    I never planned this life.

    I never planned on falling in love with a man who wanted to be in the army. When I was growing up, I never would have imagined that, that life, would become mine. My days are getting colder and a lot shorter. I have less than two weeks until the love of my life leaves. There is...

    I want to give him a religious medal

    for him to wear that will protect him while he's gone. I have always know St. Christopher medal is supposed to protect but I was reading about a St. Michael medal for military that symbolizes protection. Does anyone know what would be better? Or both?
