No matter what “they” say, you had no idea what you were signing up for. But wow — you have managed to crush this insane, topsy-turvy, military lifestyle. It may not always be pretty, but you always make it happen, someway, somehow.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know this day existed until about a year ago. I informed my husband (an Army soldier) and he said, “Oh, um… happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day!” There you have it — although a bit unceremonious, I know he appreciates and relies on my homefront mastery skills.

Odds are, most of us are too busy to really do anything on this day to celebrate. If you aren’t able to enjoy a dozen roses, a bottle of champagne, or a hot bubble bath, you can at least take a minute to realize how INCREDIBLE you are!

Why We Are Crushing On You Right Now

Military spouses do things their civilian counterparts never dream of. Do any of these ring true?

  • You let your loved one go during basic training to mostly communicate by hand-written letters and the one or two coveted phone calls (and you might have missed one by accident).
  • You married someone already in the service, and took on the role as wife and milspouse all at once.
  • You’ve moved repeatedly. You make anywhere feel like home, although you like some more than others. (And you’re optimistic that those curtains will work again someday, so you keep moving them with you.)
  • You’ve said more hellos and goodbyes than you ever anticipated, and not just to your spouse. You’ve farewelled family, your hometown, and the ladies you hold dear at your favorite duty station. Thank goodness for phones!
  • You’ve spent months away from your spouse, to live alone, or be a temporary single parent.
  • You’ve handled the “camo explosion” of gear everywhere in your house, and those dreaded pens in pockets that somehow make it through the dryer.
  • You’ve learned who you are, one duty station at a time, and you’re beautiful, strong, and resilient.

Your Secret Ingredient: Communication

There may be a few secret ingredients to your recipe of being a milspouse, but without the ability to communicate with your sweetie, your besties, and your family — no matter where you live — this lifestyle would be even more insane.
