My Husband, My Hero


Some days I just sit back and think, "I can't believe I'm the wife of a soldier." I mean that kind of life style is for other Moms I see, but not me. You know the ones that are always moving from place to place with a smile on their face and popping out kids while their husbands are deployed like it's no big deal? I guess when I married Greg the thought of him joining the army never even crossed my mind. I remember when he first told me years ago that he was thinking of joining the National Guard, I was shocked. I mean my little farm boy husband? A soldier? I just couldn't even picture it. But I remember feeling comforted that he was joining the reserves and was going to get his degree so he could become an Officer. I figured by the time he was done with all of that the war would be over. Ha! Boy was I wrong! Now we have what? About 3 months before he is deployed. Man how little I knew. But even though he will be missed and I worry for his safety I can not even begin to explain how proud I am of him and All the joy I have felt over the years. The army has truly been a blessing in our lives and I want to be that strong wife for him. My husband is a great man and I love him so. He is a hero in my eyes and I am so thankful for the life we live and the freedom we have because of the choice he and so many others made to protect all of us.

I found your like on the military blogger. I am currently going through my first deployment. He is currently stationed in Afghanistan and has already been 5 months. As hard as it is things will get easier and before you know it he will be ready to come home. I started my own blog to write my emotions and thoughts while he is gone. Hoping someone will see it and can relate. Be strong.

Andi, you have so many wonderful friends and family members...but thats just beacause you are a wonderful friend and family member :)
It will be hard to read this blog, just because our hearts go out to you and Greg. But it will help us all to appreciate what goes on...and be thankful for all we have because of those great men, women and families sacrifices. This year will be such a challenge, but so much growth will come too.
