I don't think the other military wives know how much I admire them and appreciate them. I admire that I'm sitting here at home with a husband, two dogs, a cat (and a temporary mommy to help) and I wake up stressed out, overwhelmed, and still frustrated that I am being told I can't work. It's ridiculous, I want to work. I want to make an income and help provide for my husband and I. It hurts so much that I cant, and I over think and completely over analyze the fact that I don't.
I admire my military wife friends, their husbands are gone just like mine, or deployed. They are stay at home moms, but on top of juggling the daily life they are completely in control of their life along with their kids. I can barely handle being just my husband and I. How are these incredible women functioning?! Let alone in control, and calm!
Ladies, just know I admire you all. I hope that one day I can be one of those strong women juggling my life with children, a husband and whatever else gets thrown my way. I don't think there is enough appreciation for the military wives. It shouldn't just be a day about military spouse appreciation. Our husbands appreciate us, we appreciate each-other, and ourselves.
