When He Has A Hard Day...Hey ladies!
As I'm sure most of you realize, being the one at home means you have to do more than miss him. When your airman is gone, obviously he has a hard life, and needs to have a backup! WE are their backup! WE'RE the ones that have to breathe life and love into them, helping them become the amazing and strong men that we know they are. It's hard to be strong for them but it's so worth it. The times they come home, no matter how long or short they've been away, we know that the most precious thing in their sight is US! Because who stayed up late with them waiting for a call to just tell them they're loved? WE did! Who has been sending packages filled with sweet nothings and special (and maybe naughty) treats? WE did! Who can they always count on to back them up in a decision? WE are! Who is always the first one they call when they have access to a phone? WE are! Who do they know cries and has their heart almost broke when they leave....again, WE are the ones.
We'll never leave them and we'll never forget them... I know I'm not the only one who's mind is almost one continuous thought of my hero and how much I miss him, love him, and need him.
They can't fight w/o us! They can't go on without us... when the goin' gets tough and he wants to give up, we are the ones that motivate them to press on in spite of how they feel... and most of the time they don't even have to talk to us to be motivated or encouraged! Just the thought of us is enough to get them through each hard, stressful, terrifying and long day. When they do need a pick-me-up, they find some way to get a hold of US! Not their homies on the street playin' b-ball. They call US!
We can do this, ladies! It rips our hearts out that they're gone so much and in harms way, but it's worth it... YOU and I both know HE is worth everything.
