I'd first like to apologize for my absence the past few weeks. I've been working my butt off. So, I finally have a weekend off, and a few minutes to dedicate to our blog. I'd like to take this opportunity, while people are actually reading what I write (a few of you at least) to say thank you to who I feel are the hardest working, least rewarded people in this country. To our military wives.
At the risk of sounding like I'm pandering (or kissing ass), ladies, now that I have your attention, I'd like to say thank you very much. And if you're not a military wife, please take the time to thank one who is. Being in the military is far from easy. The long hours, the physical demands, the deployments, not to mention the low pay, can really take their toll. The job as a a Military member can be rewarding though, for many of us. For me personally, every time a plane takes off from the base, I know I helped put it in the air. We get rewarded with medals for bravery, we get the camaraderie every day, heck- many of us even get time from our workday to go to the gym. When was the last time a spouse got a medal? When was the last time someone walked up to a military spouse at the store and said, "Thank you for your service..."? Nobody has ever thanked my wife. Nobody has probably ever thanked any wife.
