Last year my boyfriend & I went through a year deployment. He was deployed in Afghanistan for 9 months & in Texas for 3. Out of that entire year I saw him between 5-10 days. During that time I had to be mentally strong for not only him, but also myself. I had to believe that things would work out the way they should & I chose to continue to believe in God, as well as have A LOT of faith in Him and his plans for us. Now my boyfriend is back home safe & sound, however, I feel the need to give back to someone else going through a similar situation. I have recently heard of The Giving Keys & I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to give back to a military wife while her husband is deployed. We must always remember those who sacrifice their lives for each & every single one of us. Also, never forget to thank those who faithfully stick behind their spouses, their significant others, their mothers & fathers, brothers & sisters, grandparents, their aunts, uncles, & cousins, as well as their nieces & nephews. It isn't always an easy task, but I can say it is a rewarding one.
