Thank you, military spouses.
In the sea of "I don't know how you do its", you are the ones who say "you can do it!" You know that empathy beats sympathy every single time.
While the rest of the world forgets about a deployment or a detachment (because most can't fathom how long they are really gone), you are the one with the wine, chocolate, and shoulder. Often and always. You understand paper chains and M&M countdowns. Homecomings aren't just youtube videos to you.
You are the easiest friends I have ever made. You are the most generous, thoughtful, and wonderful.
Your friends list is never full. You don't discriminate. You are a master of all trades. You know that Murphy's Law is TRUTH and can fix a dishwasher, change a tire, and rock power tools.
"You just wait until your dad gets home" is not a phrase you ever utter. You handle it. While you aren't a single parent, you are a professional solo parent.
Most importantly, you are the light. You hold down the fort. Your children know you are their constant, your friends know you are dependable, and you absolutely are a vital part of the military complex. Without you, believe me, things would quickly fall apart.
Thank you, military spouses. Today and always. You are the best sister wives.
