    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...

    hi guys I am new on here.

    I am 23. I just moved to San Diego from Florida about a month ago to move in with my sailor. My birthday is in 2 days and he is out at sea for at least a week:( which I know seems like a short amount of time but they are preparing for their 9 month deployment. I really miss him...

    Days like this when I need him the most 😣

    just his consoling arms around me, his gentle kisses on my forehead, his little surprises, his comforting yet honest words... Just his mere presence would have been enough to soothe my aching heart. πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

    I keep telling myself to be strong

    because I need to for myself and for him as well. But I can't help but just cry when I think about how difficult it is to wake every morning hoping that I'll get to talk to him. It sucks so bad. And not knowing how he is makes it even worse.

    it's the first time I've heard from him since he left three weeks ago. I smiled for hours and I still re-read them dozens of times through the day. the things he said made me feel so good, and hearing how much he loves me and needs me makes me feel so important. he got to call...

    Found out my sailor won't be coming home

    when we thought... It's all up in the air right now.. It sick because we had a plan, but I guess I need to get used to the Navy messing with those. Ugh, why does Pensacola, FL have to be so far from California? I miss my Michael?

    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

    for basic. I'm scared so much but I'm not letting him know that. I've cried every night since he told me this is what he wants to do. Ik he's doing it so he can make a better future for us but I can't stand the thought of him being gone that long.

    I have 63 days left until my sailors pass out.

    I never want to let him go once I get hold of him. I'm not getting to see him on Valentine's Day, and he goes for his phase 2 training just before our anniversary. How on earth do you deal with never having your sailor around for special occasions?
