    Sometimes, I Wonder...

    There are times I wake up in tears.I can never remember the nightmare that caused them- bits, pieces, but never enough to piece together what occurred entirely. Then I begin to think, and my mind wanders instantly to him. I remember exactly the way he looked in his uniform, the...

    So my sailor told me last night he has an

    infection on his foot. We thought it was athletes foot but this morning he said it's getting worse. It's killing me because he's so scared that he is going to get dropped from A-school and no matter how many time I tell him he'll be fine he doesn't feel any better. I wish I...

    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...

    We sent him off to A-School today.

    I cried, not because I'm sad, but because this brave man chose me to stay by his side. I'm so proud of him. <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...

    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

    It's so weird finally knowing what is going on.

    .. Or at least having an idea. He's graduated boot camp, currently at a-school, knows where he will be stationed, and will be home at the end of November (if he graduates a-school on time)! :P Can't wait to have him home for a week!! 1 Month!

    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...
