Beautiful. I could hear your voice as I read through your story, as if you were reading it directly to me. The point you made about knowing what you stand for is an important one. I find it hard to believe that anyone in life really knows what they signed on for when they take advantage of an opportunity; be that having a child, getting a new job, moving to a new location or getting married.
But all of us have the ability to really know what we stand for. No matter what life decides to throw at us, we get to choose what we will and won’t do with our time and our resources. And for military spouses, knowing what you stand for and what you want to work toward is important. It gives you grace, strength and the ability to be vulnerable in a lifestyle that often takes more than it gives. Thank you again for sharing this beautiful story!
