THANK YOUR MILITARY In our sincere appreciation for our military troops and our law enforcement, fire department for keeping our country safe, weddingringsdepot... is giving them a 10% off discount on their purchase of wedding rings for $500 and up.
How else you can help? 1) Don't get offended, annoyed or bitchy when they come home (usually alone) & want to spend time with their family instead of driving all over town. 2) Don't do any of the above when they don't call/email/text/whatever for a few days/weeks/months after a move. Setting up house in a brand new place, all over again every 2.9 years, is a bigger hassle than you can imagine.
This is hard, harder then I ever imagined it to be. Yes, I know it will be over before I know it and everything will be ok, but that still doesn't fix the emptiness I have not having him by my side or hearing his voice or being in his arms. A huge piece of me is missing. I miss him so much it hurts. I would do anything just to hear his voice. I hope he's ok.
