Military moms don’t get enough credit!
I have been in the Air Force since my kids weren’t even around and it’s harder than ever before to pick up and leave for months at a time knowing how much I’m going to miss while they’re gone. My husband is a high school teacher so he stays at home with them while I’m out on a placement but it’s really tough not being able to hold them.
We recently moved to a new base and I’m really excited about it – we bought our first house and I’ve been finding stuff online (even some 7 string tuning) and sending pictures to my husband for the décor. He went to get us internet at home and my mom’s coming in a few weeks to really get it all together but I sometimes wish I could just be there to see it come together face to face.
I miss parts of my life before the military but I feel in my heart that this is exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.
