My husband is in the United States Marine Corps.
Two stay strong quotes that I really like are not necessarily directed towards the military or military relationships, but they have a lot of meaning:
"Hard things are put in our way, not to stop us, but to call out our courage and strength."
"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength."
I finally got myself out of this rut I have been in. I don't know why but for the past two weeks I didn't have motivation to really do anything. This past week, I've been doing more around the house (cleaning and cooking-wise) and getting all the bills paid in advance, sending mail out, and some crafting. To top it all off, I forced myself out of the house and went to the gym with my friend, Jen!
We took the cycling class with abs. We use to go 3 days a week every week when our husbands were deployed, but then since Matt got back home and I was in school, I felt like I never had the time or I was just plain lazy. Well, I never realized how intense that class is until today.. I really felt out of shape just from the two months that I took off! But I didn't give up on the 50 minutes intense cycling up and down hills or when my abs were clenching tightly
