My boyfriend sent me a teddy bear that has an Army ACU on, boots and everything! He sleeps with me every night when my soldier isn't around to. :)
I keep myself busy and am constantly buying things that say army or army girlfriend or anything along those lines. Especially clothing. It reminds me of why I'm waiting ever so patiently and why I am very proud!
I just recently discovered this site, and I've never been much of a 'blogger' but I've gotten nothing but support since I've been on here. I love to vent! So this will be wonderful.
I stay positive, and stay in a good mood (I won't lie, I've had those nights where I just want to be emotional about it, it's okay to cry if you miss him!)
I watch Army Wives too! I found it on netflix, the first 5 seasons are on it, and the the 6th is on T.V now that started a little while ago, it's perfect. It's not a reality, it's all acted out but it's so accurate on army information and the wives in it are just amazing. You ladies should watch it, even though the girlfriends don't live on base like the wives, it's so easy to relate to this show. It's a tear jerker though, so be prepared!
Good luck ladies, stand by your man and always support him! We're all here for each other, feel free to message me if any of you would just like to vent or relate, I won't judge and I'd be more than happy to find someone I can talk to on here.
