Today I will be spending Christmas Eve with an amazing couple who have been their for us since the day we met. They always watch my girls when I have an appointment and we hang out and talk all the time. When my husband was gone on training a while back they invited me over for dinner and to watch the boxing fight with them. They made sure I was taken care of as well as my daughters while he was gone. I would do the same with her when it’s her husband’s turn to leave. My neighbor also invited me for Thanksgiving so I wouldn’t spend it alone. Her husband even helped me out with the weed eater when it didn’t want to work for me… mainly cause I didn’t even know how to work it either so he showed me how. That’s what’s good about military families. Yes there’s a lot of drama on social media between military wives (I stay out of that mess) but you just have to pick and choose the right friends for you and when things are rough, pull yourselves together and help each other to keep on going.
This is our way of coping with the long distance holidays. Sticking together with our military family when we can’t make it home for the holidays. Cause no one should spend Christmas Eve by themselves so don’t hesitate to knock on your neighbors door or invite a few extra people cause THE MORE THE MERRIER!!! Merry Christmas!
