(Sorry if these shots are hard to view)A couple of days ago I was heading to the commissary on base and part of the parking lot was blocked off. There were 3 bus loads filled with Marines and I initially thought they were returning home from a deployment until I looked closer and saw all the wives crying and wiping tears from their eyes. Their husbands were being deployed. :(
It breaks my heart every time I see buses like these around the base. The optimist in me always hopes and wishes that they're here to bring the troops home but often times it's not that way. I hate war, I hate the fact that while I'm sitting here writing this post, there's a Marine wife crying herself to sleep or trying to explain to her kids why daddy's gone or trying to figure out how she's gonna get her household chores done while the kids are up.
Even though it's a really personal moment, I had to share what exactly I experience on any given day on this base and what A LOT of other military wives are experiencing as well.
Please send up a quick little prayer for ALL the troops who are currently fighting for us to have sweet dreams and sleep tight every night.
Happy Hump Day everyone!
