09 Mar The Stars Behind The Stripes
There is just something about picking up a pen and writing a letter to your best friend, your hero and the love of your life. There is a sense of power behind the ink that hits the page and the story that I get to tell about my day or what is on my mind. As I start letter number eighty-eight today I am thankful to have the chance to reach my soldier through the art of letter writing. With the fast pace of modern life, the art of letter writing is slowly fading away. But I know that the memories we create in our letters will never fade. Each letter tells a story of our journey near and far and creates a timeline of events to share with our children.
He may be several thousand miles away, but I know my words give him the strength, courage and will to fight for our country. Military spouses serve our country on the homefront. They are the stars behind the stripes when it comes to support, strength and morale for our service men and women. They wear many hats from caretaker, personal accountant to motivational speaker, in order to hold down the fort at home and keep our men and women out in the field fired up! It takes a certain person to be willing to sacrifice time away from their loved one and still hold their head up high while their spouse is serving our country. Military spouses sign up for the military as soon as their soldier, marine, airman, sailor, or coastguardsman swears in. Why? Because they love to serve their heroes here at home.
As I close out today’s letter I am grateful for the Lord keeping my soldier safe and giving me the opportunity to reach him with my words of love and encouragement to keep him strong, courageous and proud of the country he serves!
