This Ones For Us (:

For all of you who wake up in the morning, lay there for a few moments, trying to swallow the sick feeling in the pit of your stomach as you wonder where your sailor is, or how he's doing...this is for you.

For all of you who start a countdown the minute he leaves, and continue to until he is back in your arms again...this is for you.

For all of you who tear up everytime "Far Away" comes on the radio, or who press repeat when "Come Home Soon" plays in their car...this one's for you.

For all of you who see Navy billboards, ads in the paper, or commercials on TV and next notice the tears rolling down your cheeks, this is for you.

This is for you.

I am one of you too. This is for us.

For all the times we sleep with our phones on the loudest possible volume, just as to not miss the call that just MIGHT come...

For all the times we roll our eyes when another girl is depressed because she hasen't seen her guy in a week...

For all the times we hear our sailor's name mentioned out loud, and are momentarily frozen...in a trance...in love.

For all the late nights that we spend alone, cuddling with our stuffed animals, wearing our sailors Navy sweatshirts and sweatpants, and clutching the precious dog tags around our necks...

This one's for us.

We may feel weak on the inside, but on the outside we're strong.
We may be drowning in tears on the inside, but on the outside, we are a rock.

We may want to crawl in bed and sleep until our man comes home, but instead, we get up and go on with our daily lives with our men in our hearts.

We may feel like we're slowly dying with each day we spend apart from our men, but instead, we put one foot infront of the other, and take each day as it comes.

We are strong, and we are proud.

We have more love in our hearts than we ever thought possible, and for this, we are thankful. We are thankful for our men and also for each other. We are Navy gals, and we lean on each other.

Alone we are weak, but together, we are strong. We help each other, and we survive.

To all you Navy gals out there, hold your head up and be proud.
We are connected, ALWAYS

Loved this a lot!!!!

Amen sister<3

I love this <3 thank you

This made me cry a little reading. It helps a lot, even though my sailor hasn't left yet, I know when he does, reading things like this will help me make it through.

This is so beautiful. My boyfriend leaves next July and I was already getting nervous; I was even beginning to doubt whether he and I could ever make it through, whether or not I'd go insane from missing him. But you've given me strength and hope. This community has given me strength and hope. Knowing that so many other people feel like I do, worry like I do, love like I do, and of course, want to be strong like I do, God, it means the world to me. I can't thank you, all of you, enough.

Amazing

I absolutely LOVE this. (:

I couldn't have said it better myself. Well done.

Yup I tried holding back the tears but failed, I miss my sailor more than I ever could, I'm already running low on his cologne, wear his clothes constantly and just wish I could have had one more day. Thank you, I'm bookmarking this.

I love this! Definitely teared up relating to EVERY bit of it!

this is absolutely amazing. all i could do was cry while reading this because every line reminded me of myself. i can't wait for him to come back home. he's only going to be gone for a couple weeks this time but in june he will be gone for a year. it is going to be so hard but i gotta stay strong for him. he is the love of my life and i hate having to go a single day without him. only 8 more years and he can retire so we won't have to keep going through this.

Reading this made me tear up. My boyfriend of 6 years just left for navy bootcamp 4 days ago. This is very new to me and its been the hardest days of my life, but I am somehow still continuing each day as it gets closer to seeing him again. I'm motivating myself and doing huge changes to better myself while hes gone.

I love this. Brought me to some little tears but so true. Thank you <3

this is amazing!! thank you soo much for writing this!!

This will help me get through with his first deployment that will happen in a couple of weeks. I just can imagine how noble their job could be and I'm so proud of my sailor. Thanks for inspiring us, keep posting something like this.:)
