    Love

    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...

    I've just had my first encounter with this,

    but it was really discomforting. There seems to be this idea that "when my soldier is away, I will play". It seems like a lot of people assume that because my significant other will be gone for long periods of time, that I will disrespect our relationship and hook up with other...

    As Valentine's Day Approaches...

    I have always thought Valentine's Day was stupid, but it makes me miss Mikey, of course. I was talking to some of my friends about what they are doing etc.. I was just thinking how lucky we are, their men will probably never write them a love letter. Our civilian girlfriends will...

    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

    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...

    Stick In There Girl.

    Take it from an old salt. Sailors have the best and most devoted women on earth supporting them. Other services have good women too but the Navy gals do it year in and year out. War or peace, it doesn't matter. The separations don't get any easier but the rewards get better...

    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...
