We're In This Together
by Kristin Bentley
Like you, I had no idea exactly what this military life was going to be, and I certainly never meant for it to last over 15 years. But here I am, eleven combat deployments later.
As a milspo, some of our days are fairly normal, but others... not so much. And as well-intentioned as our family and civilian friends are, they really don't get understand sometimes.
But that's okay.
Some days the only thing that gets me through is my tribe of goddesses. And just like you, I have surrounded myself with those that inspire and challenge me to be my best self.
A few of these ladies have even become special enough to have become my spirit sisters.
Growing up with three brothers, I never really knew exactly what it was that I had been missing. That is, until I had my daughter.
We all have these friendships, and we hold them dear. We cling to them during times of crisis, when everything feels all wrong.
