    would explain This bitter aftertaste And the desire for what once burned. It would show cause To my insomnia, My inability to sleep At four in the morning Though what keeps me up, Is long gone

    It's easy to walk away

    and date a civilian. But instead, we check our phones every second hoping for that five minute phone call or three word text message. We break down and cry when we miss him. We force that smile because the pride and love for our men is stronger than anything else. We cherish...

    Acceptance

    I haven't talked to him in over a week. This is the first deployment I've ever had to go through with him. Before I met him, I knew nothing about the military & didn't really care. The last person to be in the military in my family was my grandpa, back in like the 50s. I have...

    I want you to know that I will always love you,

    even if you move across the country, even if you never speak to me again, I will love you more even then because absence triggers love. See, I didn't think I loved you until you were gone for months. I needed you to leave because I wasn't sure you were what I wanted but I know...

    Today is the day! Hopping on a plane to Great

    Lakes, IL to surprise my boyfriend after his graduation ceremony πŸ’™ I can't wait! Stay strong to the rest of you ladies. Your day will be here soon enough and you won't even be thinking of how much you miss your SO. You'll just be thinking of how much you want to kiss them!

    Doesn't matter the quantity of time y'all have

    been together, it's the quality of that time spent. It's why military relationships are so unique. We don't need each other 24/7 in order to know there's love here. <3

    I think I'm beginning to figure this all out. I have my awful days. Those days where you want to do nothing but sit in your bed and cry. Where you feel like you miss him so much all you want to do is sleep until he returns again. And the days where I'm so insecure about myself...

    Girls, please don't give up on your guy.

    It will get easier, I promise. He needs you now more than ever. If you truly love him and believe he is the one for you, it will be worth it in the end. If you haven't heard from him, don't worry. That doesn't mean anything. Just keep hanging in there <3
