Holidays

An Honest Military Spouse Christmas Poem for You

The holidays started as most of them do,

With chaos and frenzy and Murphy’s Law too.

~

Shopping and cooking and shouting ‘stay calm’?

More like Amazon, take-out and the occasional ‘F-Bomb’!

~

Some of us wrangle the kids in the car,

To avoid pissing off our family afar.

~

Some of us say, with a huff in our voice:

“I’m not coming this year and it’s BOTH of our choice!”

~

Before mundane things get on our last holiday nerve,

Let’s all stop and remember our loved ones, who serve.

~

Many are ‘here’ but have duty this week,

So take them some cookies and holiday treats.

~

Over 300,000 are deployed as I type,

Protecting our freedoms with nary a gripe.

~

If you’re lucky enough to have them near you this year,

Tell them you’re PROUD of their chosen career.

~

Active, Retired, Reserve, Guard or Vet;

We think of you always and we will NEVER forget.
