    This morning hasn't been easy

    for me, it's like I've been strong for so long now that my bridge finally collapsed. I'm a mess without him. I miss him so much & I've been crying my eyes out this entire morning. Yeah I know it gets better, but I haven't cried since he left in September. I just wish he was home...

    Waiting For Our Moment

    The bear he gave me gives me comfort… The dog tags around his neck that I fall asleep holding every night makes me feel close… And when I close my eyes, the t-shirt I keep on my pillow with the scent of his cologne makes me think that he’s right here...

    There's No Love Like The Love For A Soldier

    When someone falls in love, they always say they just KNOW when they've fallen. There's something about the way he touches her that sends sparks through her veins. There's something about how she looks in his eyes that gives him a hard time catching a breath. It's that knowing...

    Army Girlfriend

    I think that as army girlfriends we don't get the recognition that we should be getting. In army eyes we are just a friend to the soldier but truth is we have to suffer everything that a wife would suffer and on top of that not get any recognition at all. We have to deal with the...
