"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold.
It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love.
It’s for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough…"

Happy Armed Forces Day!
[A day to honor our current military]

Today is about honoring our active duty service members. You're always in our thoughts & prayers. Thank you for your sacrifices.

Dear Military Sweethearts,

Please extend a big "Thank you" from me to your service member. Whatever branch you're in, we are all fighting for the same cause. We are all defending the same country. We are all a part of the same family. I know a lot of bases/posts have events going on in celebration of Armed Forces Day, so I hope you all have a great day! Also make note that in honor of today, Big Lots is giving a 10% military discount (for those with valid military I.D.) off your entire purchase.

*Sending love to my deployed sailor.....
I love you baby & miss you like crazy! Thank you for everything you're doing for us & for this country. I'm so proud of you. Stay safe out there!

If you're a military sweetheart then you've been in a long distance relationship (LDR), are currently in a LDR, or will be in a LDR at some point in the future (can you say, deployment?)
Loving From a Distance (LFAD) is a great source for LDR couples! I've already listed some of the things LFAD offers, but why don't you check it out for yourself! I'm definitely purchasing an LDR Giftpack for my Sailor! We've been in a long distance relationship even before he joined the Navy. We'll be going on "officially" 4 years this coming July.
LDR History+Military+Deployment=My crazy beautiful life
I'm sure a lot of you can relate...

My fiancé is deploying soon & my top 3 deployment resources will be the FRG, Ship Ombudsman, & LFAD!

♥Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day♥
[[Here's a poem for you...]]

[The Friday before Mother's Day each year has been designated as Military Appreciation Day]

A Day for You, the Military Spouse
by Sara Horn

A day where no uniforms need mending or patches sewn on;
A day where nothing breaks down when you are all alone;
A day when children listen and there are no tears to dry;
A day where there are no questions and you don’t have to answer why;
This is the day I wish for you, the Military Spouse.

A day filled with peace and love and solidarity
A day where a phone call is just the start of the great day you’ll see
A day when you realize that what you do has fantastic enormous worth
A day where for the first time in months you can breathe without the hurt
This is the day I wish for you, The Military Spouse

A day that’s 24 hours closer to your loved one coming home
A day for webcams and Skype and soft I love you’s before dawn
A day where there are no silly arguments, just constant mutual grace
A day filled with blue skies, happiness and faith.
This is the day I wish for you, The Military Spouse


If you are a military spouse, thank you for your service.
If you know a military spouse, let them know that their sacrifices are appreciated.
Be sure to share this poem with a wonderful military spouse (past & present) that you know :)

A Prayer For Those Who Serve
[+ discounts on military items!]

"Now I lay me down to sleep, one less terrorist this world does keep. With all my heart I give my thanks, to those in uniform regardless of ranks. You serve our country and serve it well, with humble hearts your stories tell. So as I rest my weary eyes, while freedom rings our flag still flies. You give your all, do what you must... With God we live and God we trust"

AMEN! I'm sure that by now you've already heard the news about Osama Bin Laden.
GO TEAM USA! (If only this meant that my Sailor didn't have to deploy anymore.... a girl can dream, right?) This is a great victory for Americans and I want to take the time to thank your service member & you, for your service.
