Never Taken for Granted

 Never Taken for Granted

It takes a special person to ba a Marine Corp wife
Its very hard to have no say in major decisions in your life
One thing that I have figured out , not so far along
Is that the Marine Corps teaches even it's wives to be strong.
In the very beguinning I chose to be nothing but sad
Then I realised that being alone from time to time, when you'r in love is
not that bad.
A civilian wife loves her husband, do not get me wrong
But a Marine wife learns what REAL love is when her husband is gone for
long.
The sound of his voice is so important, hang on every word he says,
that is what you replay in your mind lying alone in bed.
The time that you spend together is so precious and important
because in the back of you mind you never know when he'll be deporting.
You take mental notes on every single smile, wink and glare.
That's what keeps you close to him when he is unable to be there.
You absorb every little tiny thing he says and does
you learn to appreciate eachother not because you have to, but just
because.
You never take a gesture that either one of you does for granite
and when you say " I love you" there is no doubt that you both really mean
it.
So when people ask you if you get lonely from time to time,
you can say " no, I learned what real love is and it will stand the test of

time".
