Here are some great quotes that I have loved.. and wanted to share them with you. Enjoy!

"life isn't measured
by the number of breaths we take
but the moments
that take our breath away.."

"Above all,
watch with glittering eyes
the whole world around you
because the greatest secrets
are always hidden
in the most unlikely of places
Those who don't believe in magic
will never find it.."
- Roald Dahl

"People will forget
what you said
people will forget
what you did
but people will never forget
how you made them feel..."

my husband is currently on his 2nd tour in afghanistan (also serving in OEF) just wanted to reply to "anonymous" (whose boyfriend is leaving next year) cherish every moment you have with him now! and if there are any issues between you make sure you get them off your chest before he leaves. complete and 100% openness is the only way to survive a deployment. dont get mad or upset if he doesnt share every detail about his tour, while hes gone OR when he comes home. alot of times they cant, and even if they could, they wont anyways. and more than anything else, ignore all those people that tell you not to let him see you cry, or that you have to "stay strong for him" its ok to cry and its ok to be sad, we arent any stronger than anyone else, we just choose to live a life that requires us to toughen up a lil. dont ever worry that you being upset is an extra burden on him, he feels the same way, he just understands that showing it wont change the fact that he has to leave. try to prepare yourself for ALOT of run around. deployment dates will change, plans will be up in the air, you WONT know whats going on until its already done 99% of the time. just go with it and stand behind your man every step of the way, and you'll be just fine. best wishes to your boyfriend, tell him i said thanks for his service and to stay safe! and i'll keep you both in my prayers!

My fiance just left yesterday for more trianing in fort hood, then he's off to Afghanistan - 400 days in all.. It's so rough and I miss him already, He is my world, and our unborn child is the only thing really keeping me going. I'm scared and worried, but i know i've got to stay strong, for him , and our family. this is his first deployment, and i just hope the 400 days goes by really fast. God bless all of the soldiers out there, and their families!

my fiance has just returned from a tour of duty in afghanistan. Im not goin to lie the day he left my whole world fell apart, i felt like the only person in the world to be feeling as much hurt as i did that day. the most important thing is to remember your not alone. we will never truly understand how they feel either. the onnly thing which kept me going is the letters and phone calls. its important that you send your loved one food etc in the gift boxes. it may not seem like much but it makes his day! silly little things like telling him about the weather, your day, anything will keep them going. Just let him know everyday how much you love him. its the hardest thing iv ever been through but they say absence makes the heart grow fonder and it does. My finace is home now :) dont be fooled however thinking things will return to normal because they wont! there is so much that they wont want us to know, however be patient and just cherish every single moment together! if i learnt one thing in life its to always smile, enjoy what you have and never wish for more because you dont know how lucky you are! my prayers ae with every soldier mena dn women serving on a tour of duty! xx

My husband just went back to germany..to get ready for his deployment starting the 25th of october. When he left I felt like there was a hole in my chest and apart of me was missing. I have known my husband all together for about 10 years and we just got married. He is a engineer in the United States Army. He is getting sent to Kuwait and then will be given orders to go to afghanistan. He will be gone for 12 1/2 months. I read this quote and I thought I would share it with everyone. "Missing someone gets easier everyday because even though you are one day further from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will." We have to be strong for our soldiers. Show them that we will be strong for them back home so they have that fight in them to come home safe and sounds. Being a military wife is that hardest job in the world but you do it for the one you love. He is my rock in life and without him I am just some other ordinary person. Just remember that your husband or bf misses you just as much as your missing them.

My fiance just left to go back to Iraq for the second time. Sitting around worrying about him is the BIGGEST challenge I have ever had too do! Nobody know how much a single 30 second phone call just for him to tell you he loves you & is okay means until your in a situation like this. I wish it could be somebody else doing his job, but somebody has to fight for our freedom. Sadly my fiance wont be home to spend this Christmas here with me & our baby. :(

@ anonymous that said fiancé is in Ft. Hood...what unit is he with?

My boyfriend is in the army and he has a lil over 3 more years to, we knew each other before he left for training we kept in contact through letters and phone calls he asked me out when he was done with basics and after 8 months I barely met him as my boyfriend and right now we're deeply in love. I love him a lot, he said he won't be coming home in about another 7 or 8 months and when he gets back he will be deployed to Iraq he doesn't know for how long, he told me not to worry but I do and worry a lot because I don't want to lose him. What can I do to cope with this sadness I miss him so much and being away from him its only getting harder everyday

im 16 years old and my father is leaving for Afghanistan for 8+ months, i am so sad and scared for him to leave. none of my friends understand because they have never had to worry about their parents doing things like this, or even family members. i have no one to talk about all of this with because if i bring it up to my mom i dont want her to be upset, i want to show her i am strong and not give her a reason to worry anymore than she does. we are taking my dad to the airport on monday (family day, what a lovely holiday to leave on) its going to be really hard and i am so scared..

My boyfriend of 2 years is leaving for basic training on Jan 9th. Its hard thinking about him leaving me, because we haven't spent a day apart yet. I have started to understand that he is a very strong person to go off and do this for not only me but for the whole united states. Im not as upset as I used to be, but sometimes it bothers me more than usual. I just want him to know I love him more than words can say! And im proud to have a soldiers heart in my hand! :)
