Army Wives The TV Show

Anybody watch this Show called Army Wives on Lifetime channel. I think it is amazing. Being a military wife I love when people try to tell our stories and do a good job at it. Military wives are military wives no matter what branch of service they are in.

I know you are thinking does that stuff really happen. Well my answer is yes. I know a person that can fit most characters on the show. It is sad to say but one of them is me, I'll let you figure out which one it is. But going through this life on a daily basis and to see it broadcast is humbling.

I pray that those watching will reach out to there friends, family, or co-workers that serve. Being a military family does not happen only on memorial day, veterans day or July 4th, it is everyday. But it seems like those are the only days normal/average americans are grateful. We live with bombings, loss of limbs, loss of children and husbands, uncertainty of when they come home or if they will come home. We deal with the traveling and the little amount of face time. We have to explain to our children why Dad is never at the school play or field trip. We have to explain why their best friend died or why their best friend has to move away. Gruesome, some may say but I say it is OUR LIVES. You can not lie to the children or hide the truth. They are extremely intelligent and pick up on our feelings and they listen when you think they are not.

If you do anything today think of the children of all the soldiers, sailors, marines and airman that are serving. These little people can teach you a lot and make you realize that LOVE gets you past all the pain and sadness. They bring joy in the desert and on the homefront. Say a little prayer that they will be given a chance at a happy healthy and long life, long after they are out of the nest.

God Bless our military and their families.

Such a nice post. I have been praying for your family and things will return to normal soon. Just keep doing what you're doing. You are a great mother and a great wife, and an AWSOME friend. Keep it up, you'll be rewarded in the end.
