One of my Military Wife friends sent me a few poems and sayings this week! Just wanted to share! These would work for changing the word "wife" to girlfriend on any of them!
Military Wife Prayer
"Give me greatness of heart to see the difference between duty and his love for me. Give me understanding so that I may know, that when duty calls he must go. Give me a task to do each day, to fill the time when he's away. Give me the strength to carry on, when he's working late or must be gone. Give me wisdom to get me through, when I'm not sure what to do. And when he's in foreign lands, Lord, keep him safe in your hands!"
"It takes a STRONG woman to love a Military man!!"
I'm not the perfect army wife. The deployments sometimes get to me, and there are times when nothing seems to go right when he is gone. I think about how wonderful it would be to have my soldier home all the time. There are times when he is home I push him away so it doesn't hurt so bad when he leaves again. At night I cry cause i can no longer handle trying to stay strong. There are times when I feel like walking away from this life I built, but when I stop and think about it... I remember just how much I love my man and I am proud to be an army wife.
Military Love- The greatest love ever known of felt. The weight of this love we carry, some women can not grasp, while other women would die trying. We love our men just like you do.. but unlike you with our love we have to know pain, seperation and yes, even death. That's why we love harder, are stronger and proud to be the military wife.
Here's a GREAT one. But grab your kleenex!
I just watched my entire world walk away. My life is in thousands of pieces and I am not sure how to put it back together. I am lost. I am forced to live without you and I am not sure how. The nights pass and I wake up alone. The days go by and I wait for you to come home. I sometimes think that you will walk through the door. I wait for the phone and save every email. When I miss your phone calls, I lose it. I savor every second that I hear your voice on the other line. I try and hold it in so that you don’t know that I am losing it. I try to be your strength and be your support. I have to stay strong to make your job easier. I go through each day and see couples together. It makes me miss you even more for that used to be us. I try and hold it in so no one can see I am losing it. I miss your smile. I miss your gentle touch. I miss the way you could make even the worst day better. I miss your voice. I miss the way you held me. I miss the way you kissed me. I miss the way you look at me. I JUST MISS YOU!! As the days go on, this gets easier. My life seems to get back to normal after awhile. I have my days where I feel like life can’t go on until you are back in my arms. I wonder what you are thinking and where you are. What are you doing and are you thinking of me? Do you miss me the way I miss you? Are you keeping it together or falling apart? I count down the days until I get to see you again. Funny how a calendar can make you feel better. I think about the first time I get to see you. The first time I get to touch you, the first kiss, and the first hug. Those are the thoughts that keep me going!!!
