Honestly?  I think some of the thoughts she TRIES to bring across are really beautiful.  There is beauty in the ugliness of deployment.  Truly valuing and appreciating your spouse and NOT taking them for granted.  I just think it wasn't written very well.  There are other ways she could have worded those same thoughts so they came across in a more powerful way.  JMO!

I agree with you on both parts. Very powerfull message but could be even more powerful if it had been written better.

It was really hard to read because of the poor writing.  She does have a good point though, some people take their spouses for grated and deployment makes them appreciate what they do.  But I would also say that it would be good for some women to have a deployed husband so that they can learn to stand on their own two feet and to learn to do the things that they depend on their spouses to do.

I agree. I have people ask me all the time how I can take all 4 kids with me when I grocery shop and why isn't my husband helping with them. I simply tell them my husband is away or is working and we need food so the kids are coming with me. I've had to deal with our bill people and take care of car issues while my husband has been away before. I know a lot of people that woukd freak out if they had to have their husbands/SO leave for a while.

You hit the nail on the head for me.

I felt like that when we were actuve duty.. we spent so much time away frim each other that when we together too long we would fight and get on each others nerves. I knew as soon as that started happening it ment he was going to go away soon and I would get a break from him.

I know, I admit I am sorta proud of myself for some of the things I have learned to do while he was gone, like buying the parts for and fixing our toilet one year when he was TDY, to changing the battery in my car that last time he was underway.  I had never even mowed a lawn before the first time he went TDY.
