A Military Wife’s Creed

I am an American Soldier’s Wife!
I keep the team at home together for you
I serve my Soldier in Army ways
and do what is expected of me on the home front.
I will always keep my mission of a loving home
for when you return and longer.
I will NEVER quit or leave or lose our love for each other.
I will knowingly take your responsibilities on as if you are here yourself.
I will take myself to the heights you have taken me and not fall.
I am an expert as your wife and I am a professional at taking care of your home and children while you are away.
I stand ready for any and all situations which may arise.
I am the guardian of my husbands home and love…
I am an American Soldier’s Wife!

It’s All About Perspective

The military life is what you make of it.  There are pros and cons to everything. Maintaining a positive attitude is the key to being a successful military wife.  Embrace the good. Don’t focus on the negative, it’s counter productive.  Sure, it’s a pain to pack up and move so often but how many people get to live in as many different places as we do? Look at our life like an adventure story and you’re the main character. Your outlook will determine a good or bad ending.

Try to maintain traditions while your spouse is gone, but don’t fuss if every little detail isn’t the same as the year before. It’s important for children to see that the special occasions go on even when a parent is away. Consider starting a new tradition for yourself, or make substitutions until you two can be together again. Instead of sitting at home on your anniversary, plan a girls’ night out. If you live alone, consider spending the special day with friends or relatives so you don’t wake up to an empty house.
