Come Home Soon Lyrics 4 When You Miss Him 
11:51am 06/08/2009
mood: nostalgic
This song gets me through, so thought I would share it with anyone else that wants to remember the love. Sometimes facing the pain is how we heal. Close your eyes, listen to the song, and remember the moment that he swept you off your feet. Remember the love, passion and connection you share.

I put away the groceries
And I take my daily bread
I dream of your arms around me
As I tuck the kids in bed

I don't know what you're doin'
And I don't know where you are
But I look up at that great big sky
And I hope you're wishin' on that same
bright star

I wonder, I pray

And I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it's so hard livin' here on my own
So please, come home soon
(Come home soon)

I know that we're together
Even though we're far apart
And I'll wear our lucky penny 'round my neck
Pressed to my heart

I wonder, I pray

[Repeat Chorus]

I still imagine your touch
It's beautiful missing something that much
But sometimes love needs a fighting chance
So I'll wait my turn until it's our turn to dance

I wonder, I pray

[Second Chorus:]
I sleep alone
I cry alone
Without you this house is not a home
So please, come home soon

[Third Chorus:]
I walk alone
I try alone
I'll wait for you, don't want to die alone
So please, come home soon

Come home soon
Come home soon
*Stockings For Troops*

  Hello everyone,
My cousin, Cpl. Kelly Williams, just got back from Iraq with the Marines, but her husband and a bunch of close friends are still out there. For Christmas, my cousin Emily and I are making stockings for the 22 members of her platoon.
Here are some of the things we plan to include:
* Cookies
* Candy
* Hand-painted miniature picture frames
* Books and puzzles (Sudoku, Mad Libs, joke books, word searches, etc)
* Stationery and supplies to write home
* Individualized letters from 3rd graders
* Sanitary products
* And a bunch of other miscellaneous toys and games to help pass the time
* Holiday movies, such as The Santa Clause, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Christmas Story, etc.

However, it has taken much more money than we anticipated and my funds are just about out. I really don't want to abandon the idea, so I am hoping that anyone who reads this may have a few extra dollars. It doesn't have to be much, but anything, even $1, would help!

If you can't, I completely understand. But if you can spare a little extra let me know!
You can e-mail me at nennerfree@aol.com with any questions.
I also have a Paypal account set up if you would prefer to do it that way. I think all you need is my e-mail address, which again, is nennerfree@aol.com

Thank you in advance to any who can help!

To all military girlfriends 
09:16am 09/10/2006
  I am a military girlfriend. I hold no formal recognition with the powers that be. I am at the bottom of the chain. I hold no Military ID card; I am not a dependent or a parent. The man I love may face unspeakable dangers, and I am at the mercy of those who possess this recognition for news. I understand this and accept this.

I am a military girlfriend. I have promised to be here for him upon his return, no matter how long he is away. People may say I am insane for making such a commitment with no guarantees, but I hold onto our promises and have faith that he will come home safe to me. I know full well that my love for him fuels him in the worst of times.

I am a military girlfriend. There is no ring on my finger to symbolize our commitment, though I love him no less for it. I hope every day that he will be able call because a simple 30-second phone call can bring the greatest spectrum of emotions smiling with tears in my eyes from so much joy and pain. My relationship is based on a brief communication where I love you and I’m okay speaks more than volumes and gives me the strength to keep going.

I am a military girlfriend. I take no moment spent together for granted. I hold onto every touch, caress, kiss, every word. I have memorized the feel of his skin, his smell, the sound of his voice, and I play it over and over in my mind so that I will not forget. I cry myself to sleep some nights because missing him hurts so badly, but wake up the next morning, brush myself off, and start a new day.

Here is a link to my auctions...
And here are the bracelets that are up now.

I heard this song on a CD of mine today and I realized I didn't put it on the CD that I sent my hubby. It made me sad. I mean, the song is sad enough, but knowing that I didn't share it with my hubby made me even more sad. Today was just one of those days where I just wanted to sit and mope and eat ice cream. Well needless to say, there was no ice cream involved... it sucked. But I did sit and watch TV, then took a long nap after I got off work.
I just miss Troy so much. It's hard to believe you can feel so much love for another person. I mean, I've heard stuff like that when people are talking about their kids, but this is my husband. I can't imagine what having a kid would be like... because I worry enough about my hubby, and I love and miss him so much it hurts. How can this be?
Taking orders for Soft fleece blankets

These are some Yummy and very warm blankets I have been making. They are made of some very soft fleece material. I can make these for children like in the pictures they completely cover a toddlers bed. or larger but the larger they go the price also goes up too. These are like the no sew blankets but I do the stripped ones like in the pic and that does require some sewing or I can do the traditional no sew with two colors. I did a large one for my 2 year old and the front was a soft purple and the back was a mint green. The blanket in the above pic is a cream and mint green, would be great for a little boy or someone doing a babies room in the older winnie the pooh, they tend to have alot of the sage green and cream color in it. But My prices would be for a blanket like the one above 12 dollars plus 2 dollars to ship. You get to choose any two colors and if you want it stripped like the green one or one color on one side and the other color on the other side. It takes me about 3 hours to do a blanket this size so I can get them out to you quickly. I Charge 20 dollars for the bigger blankets and you have the same options. I can also do theme blankets like a army blanket or strawberry shortcake, with those you would have to tell me what you wanted and I would go to the fabric store or co-op and see how much the yardage would cost and give you a price. Depending on where I get the fleece some panels are more expensive, like a yard of strawberry shortcake at JoAnne's is 14 dollars. Please email me with any questions and orders and I will give you the info you need for payment and like I said I can do 1 blanket in about 3 hours so I can do them fairly quickly:)

  Hi everyone it's me the braclet girl again.
I wanted to ask you all since you are Military friends and family what you thought about this idea.
My friend and I made ourselves some Deployment braclets to wear while our hubbies are gone. We have had several comments about them and have had people ask us to make them.
So here is the question,
What are your thoughts on braclets like these
Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Would you pay $18 to $25 for them?
They would be personalized and are available in branches except for Coast Guard because I haven't found any charms saying that yet.
We will have charms that include tanks, soldiers, trucks, cannons, machine guns, anchors, ship wheels, hats, canteens, several other military related charms. Oh and silver ribbons too.
We have seen these online for no less than $30 so we figure it would be better to pay $20 for one that is just as nice.

Anyway just let me know your opinions if you don't mind.

  Okay so here's the deal I need as much help as possible. I became a marine wife on 12/23/04. I'm living in Philadelphia, he's stationed in Camp Pendleton. I need to ship A LOT of stuff out there. My question is can the military pay for any of it (which I doubt but its worth a shot) or what would be the CHEAPEST way to ship it.
All help is appriciated and thanks in advance.

Oh and by the way are any camp pendleton ladies intrested in meeting.. I could use some friends

  You know the hardest job there is right now is being a military wife. Sitting here day in and day out wondering if your husband is alive and well. You dont hear from them everyday. I have heard from Matt one time and for only 15 minutes. Nobody but the spouses and family of these soldiers understand the amount of stress that becomes a daily routine. Every night I go to bed praying and wake up praying that when the phone rings that its not "that" call. Tears well up in my eyes and fear grips my heart every time it rings. I cry when I see something on TV, or read an article in the paper, or even worse when a song comes on the radio while driving. I can't see my life without my husband and I don't want my daughter to grow up with out her daddy. She is only 17 months old she doesnt understand why daddy isnt here, and God forbid should something happen she's so young will she remember. There is over 1,000 families out there that won't ever see their solider again, so when I pray for my solider I feel selfish because I dont want to feel the pain that they all ready know.
I just cant put into words the sadness that is a permanent fixture in my heart since he left. The anxiety that I feel each night when I am laying our daughter down hoping for the sweetest dreams for her. She runs around here smiling, playing and laughing; the only comfort I have is knowing she doesnt have to go through these emotions, and all the hurt and longing. My heart goes out to those who have lost and to those who still have a solider gone. It hurts and the only way it will get better will be when I see those baby blues step off that plane and feel the warm arms of the love of my life around me again.

  I just bought stamps with my picture on them to send on letters to Andrew while he's out to sea. Shhh - it's a secret.

And I know some other girls who might be interested, so...


They're real stamps. It's awesome. But kinda expensive. But I think it's worth it. :o)

And no dirty/political/criminal pictures. They have to be approved.

I found out about it from here - http://aolsvc.news.aol.com/news/article.adp?id=20040910084909990019

Yay! :o)

x-posted to a bunch of places... sorry. :o)
