Welcome! I'm linking up with http://www.ridingtherollercoaster.com/ and http://household6diva.com/ for this years military spouse appreciation day!
My name is Marcella.
I am married to a United States Marine. We were together for about a year and half, got married, and then he left for boot camp a couple months later. That was almost 8 years ago!
We have a daughter, a son, and dog and have been stationed at two different places so far.
I have always been patriotic and supportive of our military, but there's nothing quite like being right in the middle of it!
We have lived on both coasts and dealt with earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornado's.
I've gotten use to be being 3000 plus miles away from my family and have always understood that supporting my husband is number 1. That means that I miss out on a lot back home and I'm ok with that!
My faith in God is what gets me through the tough times especially in those lonely moments when my husband is deployed and I feel like I just can't do it anymore.
I am a control freak though and that is probably been one of the hardest things for me in this lifestyle. Most of the time, we don't know what is going to happen until just before and I hate not knowing where we're moving or what the plan is! ;)
I love all the opportunities and fun extras that we get to do that we normally wouldn't have gotten to do without being a military family.
It is an adventure!!
