Wife of A Sailor's Creed

I am the wife of a United States Sailor.
Although I have no rank, I MUST obey those appointed over me.
I will open up my home to fellow Sailor's and their families passing through.
I will wave good-bye to my husband with a smile on my face as his ship leaves
the pier.
I am the wife of a United States Sailor who will recieve ONLY cheerful mail
while on deployment.
I will be mommy and daddy, plumber and carpenter as well as a strong loving
disiplinarian while my husband is out at sea.
Although I don't understand why he must leave so often for such long periods at
a time, I will NOT question the U.S.N.
I know I will get little, if any, credit for keeping the home fires burning.
My pay is none for a job well done.
When his ship pulls into the pier I will greet him with a tear streaked smile
upon my face.
I will hold my Sailor tightly, until the U.S.N says I MUST let go.
I AM THE PROUD WIFE OF A UNITED STATES SAILOR!!!

Maybe I do not belong in Newcomer's anymore. I don't know. I do not want to move into Separated right now, though, and other than Hopefulness, I don't know where else I fit, so I guess I will stay here. Besides, most of my friends are over here. Who knows, maybe H will have an epiphany and I can move into Piecing by the time the ship is headed home next spring. With God, all things are possible.

You got it! I think I will join you with a Tequila Sunrise.

Any comments from you on H's last email to me? It was on my last thread.

SG--

I keep hearing that, how I am doing such a great job, and all. Why do I not feel like it? I told Red that I feel like I am totally screwing things up. I do not want to talk to my H right now. Well, not the one I am being forced to talk to. The man buried inside of him is an amazing, wonderful husband--who loved God, me, and his kids. I keep praying for God to bring that man back to the forefront, not the selfish one I am having to deal with.

Hi SMW

Believe it or not, I had not attempted to familiarize myself with your sitch from the beginning until I tried now. Geez!! I believe the "here is my sitch " must have been 'condensed' (dare I say) to a couple of pages from whatever it may have been in reality to cover it all.

I am still digesting the very first couple of pages that you disseminated. As time permits, I will want to check into it so more. As if I and everybody else didn't know already, the Lord has crafted an incredibly strong woman even amongst USN wives. You're something else. I feel like I have gotten to know you and "where you have come from" considerably more.

Exalt the Lord at all hours. Good night hon.

Stay here until something changes..you'll get more help here I think..

I think there needs to be a reason to move before you move..unless of course the sitch gets so negative that the new ones coming on don't need to see it..ie..Mike LOL or Batchitt crazy sets in..

It is pretty gross and ugly. You are truly a brave man for reading it! Yes it was condensed, but so much happened in a relatively short period of time.

The first few pages were so painful for me to write, like ripping off a band-aid on sensitive skin. However, once I did, it was almost like a catharsis. I could let go of some of that stuff and focus on the narrow road ahead. I have learned a lot about me over the past 10 months, things I never expected, strength I never knew I was capable of, and even how deeply I loved my husband. I knew I loved him, but had never really examined to what extent. I know that my growing relationship with the Lord has also led to this deeper love for my H. I love him, period.

As for being an icon among Navy wives, I don't know about that. I just know what is in my heart to do for my husband while he is on deployment. I support and love him, take care of our children--being mom and dad to them for a time, keeping up our house, and planning for when he comes home.
