    Veteran's Day Program

    Today, I went to a Veteran's Day Program and it touched my heart. It was so amazing. They had great speakers, poems, songs played by the band and sung by the choir. They had the color guard present the flags and they did a 21 gun salute. They also had a video presentation of what...

    i have been asked by family,

    friends, and strangers "how do you do it?" and every time i say "i just do" because i really have no answer how i do it there isn't any trick, there isn't any magic, there is no secret as to how i do it. I literally just do it and i don't really know what else to say.

    So it's been a crazy 6 months!

    !! My hubby is finally home, but only for 3 weeks then he heads to Germany! Where I will follow shortly behind. I really don't want to say goodbye again for any amount of time and I'm so overwhelmed with an over seas move. Now I'm just trying to roll with the punches!!

    A U.S. Soldier….His emotions are impenetrable,

    yet his shoulders are soft for those that need someone to lean on. His hands are firm yet know exactly where they need to be. If he has his arms wrapped around you, he’s about to end your life or you’re in the safest place you could ever be. He’s stubborn but will let you...

    What. A. Bummer. Don't get me wrong, the Army is a respectable career and lifestyle. It pays well and has amazing benefits. Sadly, the saying, "It's too good to be true," likes to prove itself to be a factual statement. My husband has been away for a year already. In that time...

    I'M In Love With A Soldier

    Loving a soldier is a high price to pay, loving him truly is hard when he's away. It's being alone with nothing to hold; lt's being young, but feeling old; it's having him whisper his love for you; it's whispering back that you love him too. There comes a kiss and a promise for...
