    This week is hell week

    for my sailor.. It's going to be the first time we don't get to talk for days at a time in a really long time, since boot camp. Anyone have words of advice? I'm nervous about how upset I'm going to get from missing him/ that I'm going to reach my breaking point

    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

    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...

    We are talking about marriage!

    I'm so excited within the next year we will be engaged and I'll be following him wherever he goes. I haven't told anyone yet, because ik they won't really understand. But I'm glad I have you ladies to share this exciting news with!:)

    My honey is in basic training

    and will be graduating May 8th. I'm so excited for him, but I have not had a phone call in 17 days and I am unsure why. Has anyone else experienced this or have a suggestion for the cause of it?

    I got my first phone call today

    and I'm literally in tears. It was so nice hearing from him, his laugh, him calling me babe, and of course telling me how hard it's been without me. Saying goodbye never gets easy.

    Navy Girlfriends Prayer

    As I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. To help me clear my cluttered mind. To help me through these desperate times. To bring my love to me all night. In Dreams where everything feels so right. That even if he can't be here, Make it feel as though he's near...

    I want to show you why you can get through this. Why it is worth it. Just based on the reassurance to all the insecurities I had, which Mathew was able to tell me once he was in A School and had some time to loosen up and start really talking.   I know you're hurting...

    And he's gone again. The worst part about his

    deployments is the not knowing. I hate not knowing when he'll be back or when the next time I speak to him will be. For the next few months I'm going to be without my best friend.

    Non military couples just don't

    even know how incredibly lucky they are to get to see their other half everyday. Or every week. Or even every month.

    It's easy to walk away

    Anyone who had a loved one in any branch of the military knows this ride all too well, and sadly for us, it isn't a ride we can get off easily. Just when you have one foot out of the rollercoaster car, the ride takes off again. I am (of course) no exception to this wonderfully...
