It's Wednesday once again, which means it's time to link up with Jamie for 'What I'm Loving Wednesday'!
And what kind of Marine wife would I be if I didn't start off on this November 10th by saying I love the Marine Corps!? For those of you who do not know, today is the 235th birthday of the USMC! While military life is not always easy, I am grateful for the experiences and security that it has given us. Deployments are hard, and long hours/training/duty/etc sometimes make it feel like even when my husband is NOT deployed, he's never really home. But at the end of the day, we have a nice roof over our heads, a steady paycheck, a job that can't be lost (unless under extreme circumstances at least), health care and some sense of stability in this economy. So after nearly 4 years of marriage and countless months, weeks, days apart I can still honestly say that I love being a Marine Wife. I am proud of my husband for all he has done and being the best Marine I know. (Though I am perhaps a bit biased!)
A few quotes and photos that seem appropriate to share today.
The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.
God found some of the strongest women and made their match a Marine.
"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough..."
"The thought of being with you tomorrow gives me the strength to go on today."
And more importantly, I love my husband, for being the wonderful person he is. He is truly my prince charming and has made all of my dreams come true, and so much more! I cannot imagine where I would be without him and I look forward to the day that we no longer have to say good-bye. Semper Fi, my wonderful husband, Semper Fi.
