With Memorial Day here, I want to reflect on and appreciate all those serving in the military. Specifically, I want to think about my own husband who is in the military and why he is “The Man” and more.
This is not to leave out military women – they are incredible and serve in ways that I know I’m not “woman enough” to even think about doing. But, for this moment I want to share why I “love me a military man”.
Reason 1: He is devoted to things bigger – way bigger – than himself.
Reason 2: He respects men, women, and children enough to give his life for them – even ones he’ll never meet.
Reason 3: He understands how to work as a unit, as a member of a team. He sees our marriage and our family as a living, breathing, working entity that is critical to the mission called “country”. He believes that if we fail, everybody fails.
Reason 4: He knows what’s right and what’s wrong, and there are some things that just aren’t negotiable.
Reason 5: He can lead and he can follow; both are equally important.
Oh, and he looks really cute in a uniform.
