Everything Inside of the March Brave Crate!!
I know this may sound strange, but while my spouse is deployed I always admire the cactus. A cactus grows stronger, more resilient and can even create beautiful blooms even in the harshest of conditions. This reminds me so much of the deployment countdown season. Even if conditions are harsh, we are still strong enough and resilient enough to grow in new and beautiful ways.
It’s tempting to see our spouse’s deployment as a season to hibernate. To let our leaves fall off and wither for just a bit while things around us feel difficult. But if our community of military spouses have taught me anything it’s this: we’re not that kind of flower. We are a cactus- and right now, even in this harsh season of deployment, we were made to BLOSSOM.
So, as we move toward homecoming through month of March I hope that everything inside this Brave Crate helps you count down with hearts in your eyes!
