Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year? – Brené Brown
Any military wife will tell you that those sorts of ordinary joys come from having a husband return from deployment. It’s those little things that bring joy that civilians will never understand – being able to go grocery shopping with your spouse, doing his laundry, making coffee for him in the morning, snuggling up with something other than a body pillow at night, making dinner for someone else, etc. As much as I bitch and moan about DH and how much work he creates around the house for me, we’re better together.
I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
