Putting down roots, deciding this is home. Being willing to risk pain and disappointment in the search for deeper friendships. Seeking a new church home, a new school, a new hair stylist. {That can be traumatic, friend.} It’s what thousands of us do every year.

Military wives.

Not just wives. Husbands. Kids. Single Airmen, Soldiers, and Marines. We pack up boxes and say goodbye, not knowing who will be on the other side to say hello.

It is brave.

If you are doing it, again, my heart and prayers are with you. We think we are staying put. We know it can change at any given time, but we’ve decided to live as if this is it.

We only have today anyway, right?

  1. Thank you for your sacrifice… I am always amazed at how wives and family of service members cope. I’m a mom to two military sons so I am very tuned into the life style. I wish more Americans were aware of what the families go thru. Blessings to you :)

    1. Thank you Brooke! You hold a difficult role yourself. Despite being married to a military man for nearly two decades, it’s a different pull on my heart when I imagine our now teenage son considering service. God bless you and your sons!
