    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...

    Alrighty ladies, so here's what to expect

    when your sailor graduates from basic training at Great Lakes. *spoiler alert* lol So get there early, so you can get a really good seat. The sections are divided by division so you can sit in front of wherever he/she is going to be standing. It starts with some performances...

    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...

    it hurts so bad every time I get off the phone

    with him. I am forgetting what it feels like to be in his arms. I am forgetting what he taste like. I want him. Plain and simple. I want just him. I want him more then I want food or sleep. He is all I think about. some days I feel fine, but others I feel like complete poop.

    The Wonderful World Of The Emotional Rollercoaster

    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...

    My boyfriend has been gone

    for exactly 3 weeks, he graduates may 1st. I've only got one phone call, I sent him a letter before he sent one to me because we got his address from the information letter he sent. I'm scared he's not missing me as much as I'm missing him.

    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
