I am a new Army wife. We are a new Army family. Really new.
I say that because all I know, right now, of my Army life to come is what I hear about. We are in limbo, and so are all the other wonderful loved ones that I have met since Michael started Basic. Good thing.
What is it good you ask? It is good because I am not alone.
That is something I am seeing more and more in this life. The other Army wives/girlfriends know how I feel.
Now they may not know exactly, because our situations might differ some, but they know what it is like to be in limbo.
Hurry up and wait is something we joke about a lot in Army life, but it is the truth. We are waiting.
Waiting to find out where we will be stationed, when our soldiers will be deployed, and it seems we are always waiting to see them.
What has made this bearable for me is the people I have met. Thank God for Facebook right now. This social network has been my life saver over the past few months. I have met and become very close to some of these amazing women who are going through the same thing I am going through.
The thing I love about the women I have met so far is that they are their to pick me up when needed and I can do the same (although I usually need to be picked up more than them lol). I see amazing love coming from these other families that inspires me to love my husband more. I am becoming a better person by knowing these women.
So, thank you all for your friendship so far. I hope to know you all for a long, long time.
