Just wanted to share a little something....

...that made me feel a little better today. I was talking to my favourite friend Annette on Facebook and she said in her message (she said I could quote her, by the way, so no out of context quotes here!):

Take care hun, you're doing a great job while Steve's away, he must be so proud of you. I know he's out there doing a great job for the country but you're the person thats looking after his girls for him and giving him something to look forward to.
Love and miss you bird!!
By the way if you want to copy and paste the last paragraph on your blog your more than welcome as people need to see who really holds this country together, 'the wives and family of the guys out there'

Its so nice when people recognise the work of the people at home. I have had a very hard time while he has been gone. Life has been especially tough for a multitude of health, personal and social reasons and it has needlessly been made tougher by the selfish actions of others.

Its so nice to receive something like this especially to know I have love, thoughts and support of friends even when they have moved on to pastures new.

Just thought I'd share, especially to those who are in the same situation at the moment.

With Love

Oh Sally, please don't think you're forgotten. The majority of people in this country not only appreciate what our troops do, but also appreciate the fact that they have family at home holding things together while they are away and also dealing with the aftermath when they come back. Sadly we often forget to say it out loud. God bless you sweetie.

Sally, I feel lucky that I have never been in your predicament but I have a few friends who are. I think you are all amazing, when it must be so hard for you with your man away where he is. Please take care and take comfort from your beautiful daughters XXX

Hiya hun, I just got goosebumps reading what you put. Im so glad the words I said meant something to you. They certainly were typed with alot thought.
I recieved a post on my wall on facebook from a fellow forces wife when I read it i always get tears in my eyes. I'll paste it now.....

The Silent Rank

I wear no uniforms, no blues or army greens.
But I am in the military in the ranks rarely seen.
I have no rank upon my shoulders. salutes I do not give.
But the military world is the place where I live.

I'm not in the chain of command, orders I do not get.
But my husband is the one who does, this I cannot forget.
I'm not the ones who fires the weapon, who puts my life on the line.
But my job is just as tough. I am the one that's left behind.

My husband is a patriot, a brave prideful man
and the call to serve his country, not all can understand.
Behind the lines I see the things needed to keep this country free.
My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do our kids and me.

I love the man I married. Soldiering is his life.
But I stand among the silent ranks known as the Military Wife.

What more can I say.

aww thats beautiful, what a special friend. I can only imagine how hard it is for you and the girls, who must also be missing their daddy and oblivious to the enormity of it all.
As they say behind every good man is a strong woman. Stand tall Sally xXx

It must be a hard time for you! I haven't had my husband out there but my big brother was down there for 6 months. I am so happy he is safe and sound back in Norway again!

You must remember that you and all the wives are very important for the men in war! That's what keep them motivated when it gets rough! So keep up the good work, you are doing great!!! :)

Thinking of you!
