    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...

    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.

    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...

    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!

    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...

    To All The Girls Whose Men Are In Boot

    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...

    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...

    Man, nothing is quite like waiting all day,

    just hoping for a phone call, and ending up with nothing. :( I know it's not his fault, and I guess I am just mad at myself for missing his last call. Does anyone know about what time a recruit may call around during basic training if they can call? Also, what day(s)?

    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

    I've been spending this weekend with his family.

    I love them and they adore me. Especially his parents. But being in his house...in his room.. Brings up memories and makes me miss him like crazy. Can't help but feel like a part of me is missing. He should be here. With all of us. It hurts. I'm trying to be strong.

    He is deployed right now

    and even after he gets back I won't be able to see him in person for several months. His grandma died and I'm not sure what to do now. I don't even know if I should say anything about it when we get to talk next time.

    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...
