Dear Military Spouse,

I see you. I see you holding your breath every time your phone rings.

I see your tears every time there’s a news story and you haven’t heard from them.

I see your “I love my soldier” bumper sticker.

I see you.

I see you as you hold your crying children and say “daddy will be home soon, it’s okay”

I see you repeat that sentence convincing yourself more than them.

I see you waiting for the skype call that means they can finally see daddy’s face.

You are strong, and I see you.

I see you holding down the fort at home with a smile on your face and worry in your heart.

I see you push through everyday, even when it feels like you can’t breathe.

I see you clutch your phone a little tighter and hold that picture a little closer.

I see you on birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries.

I see you praying that  they’ll just come home to you safely.

I see you.

I see you, and I’m telling you to breathe. Take a breath.

Keep praying and keep waiting, but don’t forget to breathe, because we see you.


Enjoy And Share
