being a navy wife
Some women I got to know back in singapore, where we staid some years back, used to say: you'll get used to it, while the deployments get up to 2, 3.. it will get easier.. uhmm no it doesn't get easier at all, my heart is being torn apart every time I have to see him walk yet on another ship, knowing I won't be seeing and holding him for a VERY long time... uhh it sucks !! Or friends who say: You're so strong, I don't know how you do it.. well 1) I'm not really strong and 2) do I have a choice? nope, so I suck it up and just .. go with the flow.. my boys help me tons when it comes to finding a reason to getting up in the morning (especially the first few mornings of waking up alone in bed) cooking a healthy meal, getting out the house and most of all: for being happy and making me laugh !!! (for it seems that there wouldn't really be much to laugh, or be happy about right after the good byes)
My husband is here at the moment but somehow I just have these moments where I mentally prepare myself for his next deployment (if that's even possible) and trying to figure out all I would like to do during that time. This is also one of the reasons why I started blogging, thinking it would be a great way to keeping me busy, and to keeping my husband up to date, wherever he might be.
I would be delighted to find some muslim navy wives, navy wives, homeschooling navy wives etc. wondering how you are passing your time whenever your husbands are away. God bless
