Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Blue Star Family, Military Lifestyle Survey Release. If you have never been or heard of it I definitely urge you to go and check it out here. See if what is important to you was important to other military families. If you aren’t military, reading this survey might give you insight into the military life. The invisible divide between military and civilian worlds was something of special note on the survey. There was a fairly high number of those surveyed that felt, while civilians as a whole are supportive of the troops, they don’t understand them. Its pretty hard to understand something that you don’t live, but how does that feeling affect our lives…that, I guess, is something to think about.
So, the hubby has my laptop…so I was forced to scour my facebook page to discover what I might have been doing a year ago today….
My guess, based on all the pics was that we may have ventured out to the National Marine Corp Museum!
If you are ever in the Northern VA/DC area I highly recommend you get out and visit it. They did an absolutely marvelous job putting it together, both inside and out. The kids were entertained, my husband was in heaven, plus there’s all these adorable (fresh out of boot camp) Marines on special duty there. They are pretty cute.
Well, here I am, a day late with my mil-spouse appreciation day post. This has been an amazing week for me and my mind has been swimming with thoughts and ideas for me and my blog, and my readers. One thing I am very excited about is an upcoming series about the military life. There are so many spouses, experiencing different things, in different situations, from different backgrounds and living different lives. But, and that’s an important BUT…..we can all learn from each other. Even if we aren’t going through a specific situation we can still learn from them. I feel like the military life is like perpetual school. I know that every day I’m learning something new. I’m seeing other ways to cope. My kids help me learn. They help me learn to be a better woman, mother and wife! I’m stronger because I know I can be. I hope to bring some amazing stories to you. Stories from some amazing fellow mil-spouses that are strong and beautiful women, along with bringing you my own story.
So to all the strong women out there, Military spouses, girlfriends an fiancé, thank you so much for your example, for your inspiration and encouragement. Stay tuned for a new story every week.
Now just a little tidbit about me
I’m an Air Force Wife, technically Air Guard, but we are full time…ridiculously hard to explain most of the time…….
We have three beautiful children and have been together for 13 years!
I love to read when I can, watch black and white movies, spend time with the huzzy when I can. Watch my crazy children grow, watch the news, read the news, learn as much as possible about the amazing history of our country! We are now living in the DC metro area and Im in absolute heaven! If you aren’t already a follower I hope you come by when you can.
