Good-bye Military Life

6 years ago today my husband became a United States Marine. 
I didn't know that this amazing man would come into my life just a year later and bring this life to me.
I have to say that I have had some of the scariest time in this chapter. 
Many many sleepless nights.
Many See you laters.
3 first kisses.
Many phone calls.
Many Love letters.
Many nights sleeping alone.
 Too many of everything.
I am however blessed to have been part of this life.
 It brought a whole new family into my life.
The woman and Marines I met will forever be cherished.
These wives made deployments go by faster.
They were the ones who hugged me when I cried.
They were the ones who knew exactly how I was feeling.
I had the time of my life with this chapter. It brought the worst fears and the best times of my life.

If one of my children decide to go into the military I wont lie I will try and talk them out of it,but if they feel it is their duty to follow dads footstep and give back to their country. Then I wont stand in the way. I've always loved John F.Kennedy's quote.
 My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.-John F. Kennedy

Good Bye Marine Corps. Its been an adventure:)
