Yesterday I came home from a very long day at work to a beautiful rose on my door. Attached was a sweet card from our housing office. I will admit that the rose made my day. Not because I'm a military spouse but because I had a really long stressful day at work. I honestly think this day is stupid. I should have a special day dedicated for me because I love and support my husband just like every other wife should? Why don't all wives get a special day? So we occasionally suffer through deployments where our husbands are away for long periods and sometimes in danger. I know people back home who are married to men who travel a lot for work on oil rigs or construction. They are gone for months at a time and risk their lives every day too. We are wives. Yes we are married to a military man but we are wives to these men because we love them. I don't do anything special or feel entitled because of my husband's career choice. I guess I just feel like all wives should have a special day as a whole because we are all the same in wanting what's best for our spouses.
