Yesterday was not a good day around here. My beautiful Air Force, that I love and respect so much for what it stands for, broke my heart yesterday. It was like having a first fight. The relationship is going beautifully, it’s all butterflies and roses. Then, out of nowhere comes the first fight. Only, it was a little fight. It was a fight that showed that core values are not shared and that finding a compromise might not be possible. I’m still mourning the loss of those values that I thought my Air Force upheld.
But today we persevere. We hold our heads high and we take a deep breath. Regardless of the veil being ripped from my face so that I could see the truth about B’s career field, he still has a commitment to finish. I will stand proudly by his side and know even more what an anomaly of a man I married.
